Scania: Scania unveils new test laboratory in Brazil

Scania has inaugurated a €10m Technology Centre in São Bernardo do
Campo, Brazil, with engine test cells that will be used for the
developing, testing and certifying of its engines.

"With this initiative we are placing Brazil within the context of the
most cutting-edge technology in the automotive sector, reflecting, at
the same time, our commitment to the country and to a sustainable
transport system", says Per-Olov Svedlund, President and CEO of
Scania Latin America.

Consisting of two cells, the Tech Centre meets the latest demands for
Euro 6 emissions measurement capability, preparing Scania for the
global implementation of tougher emissions legislation. The Tech
Centre will be integrated into the company's existing development
organisation for new global products, support the local certification
of future emission legislations, and also support the global
production system for Scania's wide range of engines.

"With this structure we are meeting, on the one hand, the growing
global demand for engine tests, led not only by an improvement in
income but also the search for more sustainable technologies. On the
other hand, we are strengthening Scania's position as a company that
is driven by innovation and engineering, and also strengthening our
position as a leader in the use of alternative fuels and in the
development of new products", says Henrik Alfredsson, Vice-President
of Research and Development for Scania Latin America.

Research and development into new technologies is already embedded at
Scania's Swedish headquarters, but the new Brazilian test cells
accelerate this process, which is key to Scania's vision of
sustainable transport.

The laboratory is able to test and monitor the performance of up to
two engines at a time, giving access to the test data for test
engineers locally or even remotely from Sweden. The information
captured will be used as a basis for new engine designs, or for
improvements to Scania's existing vehicles.

Manager, tel. +46 8 553 856 62.
