Scania Power Solutions has launched a new engine platform designed to provide new power outputs, longer service intervals, longer base-engine operational life and reduced carbon dioxide emissions. The engines will be available for industrial, heavy machinery and power generation applications. Series production is due to begin in 2024.

The starting point for the new platform is the 12.74-liter inline six-cylinder diesel engine designed for Scania's road-going vehicles, which was launched in late 2021. This engine delivered a claimed reduction in fuel consumption of 8% and thermal efficiency approaching 50%. Design features include dual overhead camshafts and a single cylinder head casting, replacing the individual cylinder heads of the previous engine.
