Scania and Kobelco Construction Machinery have signed a partnership to use Scania’s engines in Kobelco’s hydraulic crawler cranes.

Scania will supply 13-litre low-emission industrial engines to Kobelco for use in its latest crawler cranes with a lifting capacity of 300 metric tons.

The first Kobelco product to be fitted with a Scania industrial engine will be launched in the US.

Scania’s 13-litre 331kW industrial engine meets the Stage IV/Tier 4 final/Japan H26 emission standards without the need for a particulate filter.

Kobelco’s Scania-powered products include the CK3300G-2 model (for North America), as well as the CKE3000G (for Europe) and CKS3000 (for other markets).

Hiroaki Iwamitsu, managing executive officer, Kobelco’s design & development engineering division, said: “Kobelco is happy to take a new step forward with Scania. From the experience we have had with Scania on developing a new crane, we have seen the advanced technology and great cooperation Scania offers. We look forward to further success together in the future.”
