Scania India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Swedish Commercial Vehicle maker Scania, has launched the new P 440 8X4 20.2 Cu.m U-BODY tipper. The P 440 U-BODY tipper has been designed to increase the productivity of mining tippers and improve the Total Operating Economy.
The company said its P440 tipper has been designed to meet demanding conditions in the Indian market and offer maximum operational capacity and fuel efficiency.
The “U” design for the tipper body is the first in its class for overburden removal application. The body’s unparalleled combination of “U” design and superior wear resistant steel increases the payload carrying capacity by up to 5 percent while reducing the fuel consumption by almost 5 percent due to low self-weight of the tipper body. It also improves the stability of the vehicle by lowering the overall centre of gravity.
The P 440 U-BODY tipper has a 13 litre, 440 HP engine and is capable of reaching peak torque at lower engine speed. It is BSIV compliant through Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. This when coupled with Scania patented Opticruise gear shift technology keeps the gear shifts to an optimal number and directly benefits the customer by improving fuel efficiency.
Speaking at the launch event, Raghavan Srinivasa, Director, Sales (Trucks) at Scania Commercial Vehicles India, said, “We are very confident that P 440 U-BODY tipper will deliver on our promise of driving even more value and profitability for our customers”
While talking about Scania’s commitment to offering complete solution to customer Hanna Johansson, Director, Business Support, Scania Commercial Vehicles India (on behalf of Mikael Benje, Managing Director) said, “Scania India firmly believes in having a true partnership with our customers. Besides being a manufacturer of heavy trucks and buses, Scania is increasingly developing new ways of delivering customer value based on a full service offering that delivers lifecycle profitability.”
