Scania offers a flying start for sustainable airports


In a time and era when the travel industry focuses on sustainability, Scania is at inter airport in Munich with a representative selection of vehicles, engines and solutions for ramps and runways. Airport operators can turn to solutions based on alternative fuels and hybrids from Scania’s modular range to reduce their carbon footprint. 
“Catering trucks and crash tenders may have low annual mileage but can still through alternative fuels significantly contribution to making airports more sustainable,” says Alexander Vlaskamp, Senior Vice President, Head of Scania Trucks. “Every contri­bution are important and we see a rapidly growing awareness in this area from our customers.”
Scania is also offering industrial engines that meet the latest emission Stage V requirements while also providing excellent fuel efficiency. The latest addition, DC16 315, is a V8 that produces 710 hp and meets both Euro 6 and Stage V emission levels. All of Scania’s industrial engines are based on Scania’s industry leading truck engines, thus offering the same level of robustness and availability and the opportunity to use Scania’s worldwide parts and service network.
Major airports are dependent on an array of different service and support vehicles. That is why Scania’s solutions based on alternatives such as bio­ethanol, biogas, biodiesel or hybrids will make a difference, despite the fact that each individual vehicle might have relatively low annual mileage or operating hours.
“Closed area operations such as major airports are in fact ideal for electrification via our hybrids,” says Vlaskamp.” Catering trucks, for instance, travel back and forth but with limited distances and can find time to charge between assignments. And if they run out of electric power, they can always rely on HVO for their internal combustion engine and still operate with a CO2 reduction of up to 90%”
Scania is the only OEM that offers trucks, buses, chassis and engines that also include a full range of alternative solutions in propulsion and powering. Everything from rescue vehicles, passenger transport, catering and supply trucks or various types of maintenance vehicles, including snow blowers, can therefore operate with a lower carbon footprint and excellent total operating economy.

Solutions that meets the challenges
“I believe that Scania’s line-up is unique,” says Vlaskamp. “With Scania’s commitment to low carbon operations, engaging in a partnership with us means access to an almost endless palette of sustainable solutions.”
