Scania to exam electrically powered trucks in real-life conditions

Posted on 05. Jun, 2015 by in Volkswagen Canada

Scania will start contrast electric trucks on a electric highway that will turn a existence as a Swedish Transport Administration has now authorized support for a Gävle Electric Road project. The plan will denote and weigh conductive technology, that involves electrical delivery by beyond lines above vehicles versed with a pantograph appetite collector.

The investment in a Gävle Electric Road plan is in line with a Government’s idea of an energy-efficient and fossil-free car swift by 2030 and will assistance to strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness. The plan consists of about SEK 77 million in open financing total with about SEK 48 million in co-financing from a business village and a Gävleborg region.

Scania’s trucks will work products ride services on a two-kilometre exam route, that is being built between a Port of Gävle and Storvik along European highway 16. The trucks are versed with an electric hybrid powertrain grown by Scania.

Power to a trucks is eliminated from beyond lines by a pantograph appetite gourmet mounted on a support behind a cab. This record has been grown by Siemens, that given 2013 has conducted trials of electrified trucks together with Scania during a investigate trickery outward Berlin.

The probability of handling complicated trucks regulating electricity in this approach means that a truck’s coherence to perform ride tasks regulating electricity and as a unchanging hybrid lorry is maintained, while adult to 80-90 percent of a hoary fuel emissions disappear. Operating costs will be low as most reduction appetite is compulsory due to a potency of a electric engine, while electricity is a cheaper source of appetite than diesel.

“The intensity fuel assets yet foundation are substantial and a record can turn a cornerstone for fossil-free highway ride services. Electric roads are also a approach to rise some-more eco-friendly ride services by regulating a existent highway network,” says Nils-Gunnar Vågstedt, who is obliged for Scania’s investigate in this field.

The proof trickery for conductive record is partial of a Electric Roads Project, that is one of a largest creation buying projects now underneath approach in Europe. In team-work with a Swedish Transport Administration, a Swedish Energy Agency and VINNOVA, attention and academia will denote and weigh electric roads as a probable process for shortening a use of hoary appetite in a ride system.

Participants in a Gävle Electric Roads plan embody Gävleborg Region, Siemens and Scania as good as Boliden, SSAB, Sandvik, Stora Enso, Ernst Express, Midroc Elektro, Sandviken Energi, a Port of Gävle, Gävle Energi and a Stockholm School of Economics. The Swedish Transport Administration, a Swedish National Electrical Safety Board and a Swedish Transport Agency have also collaborated closely with a project.

Scania is also participating in another investigate beginning as partial of a Electric Roads Project, where initiation record will be tested in city train services. A Scania city train featuring an electric hybrid powertrain will go into daily operation in Södertälje starting in Jun 2016. There will be a charging hire during one of a train stops where a train will be means to refill with adequate appetite in only six-seven mins to finish a whole journey.
