Scania Wins Heavy Duty Manufacturer LowCVP Champions Award

Scania won the Heavy Duty Manufacturer of the Year trophy at the 2016 Low Carbon Champions Awards the second year it has taken LowCVP s top prize.

The Swedish truck OEM took the award for its dedicated gas-powered trucks and buses, which are now in service with several high profile operators in the UK.

We were impressed with the commercial focus Scania has taken in delivering lower-carbon trucks and buses into real world operations while also developing innovative longer-term options for trials, said the judges.

They also praised Scania s commitment to the introduction of sustainable biofuel options in the difficult-to-decarbonise heavy-duty vehicle market .

We are delighted to have once again been recognised for our work as we drive the shift towards a sustainable transport future, comments Scania (GB) managing director Claes Jacobsson.

Our dedicated gas-powered trucks and buses are capable of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90% when running on biogas, which represents a major contribution to the decarbonisation of heavy commercial vehicles.

Operators running gas-powered Scania trucks now include Argos and the John Lewis Partnership. Reading Buses and Stagecoach are two bus operators utilising the technology in the UK.
