FUEL OPTIMISATION UNIT

If there is a need for more space in front of or rear of the fuel tank it is possible to move the fuel optimisation unit considered that the following requirements are fulfilled:​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel tank shall be placed in the same vertical plane​

  • The fuel optimisation unit can only be rotated around a vertical axle and thereby only be moved with maintained angle compared to the ground​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel pipes shall be protected from heat sources​

  • The fuel optimisation unit and fuel pipes shall be protected from gravel, snow etc from road​

  • Possibility for maintenance of the fuel optimisation unit shall be maintained e.g. the bottom plug and the filter cartridge shall be easily accessible.​

  • If longer pipes or cables are needed they shall be replaced by new full length pipes in necessary length.​

  • Maximum length for fuel pipe between fuel optimisation unit and engine is 12000 mm​

  • Maximum length for fuel pipe between fuel optimisation unit and fuel tank is 2000 mm​

  • Fuel pipes and electrical cables shall be long enough to facilitate the fuel optimisation unit to be disassembled and lowered without removing the fuel pipes

HYDRAULIC EQUIPMENT TO POWER BODYWORK​

All vehicles can be factory-fitted with various hydraulic components. ​

Available components are; control, hydraulic pump, hydraulic oil tank, hydraulic valve with pressure limiting valve, hydraulic hoses and couplings as well as hydraulic oil.​

More information about the different options can be found in the Hydraulic equipment document as we as well as part numbers for Hoses and couplings for retrofitting that can be ordered from Scania dealers.​

Documents are updated with information regarding the new fuel- and hydraulic tank program introduced in connection with Scania Super.

DOCUMENT FOR FRONT MOUNTED EQUIPMENT IS UPDATED

Requirements for installation of front mounted equipment for instance support legs and snow plough equipment as well as information regarding moving of the front radar is added.​

When using front supporting legs, snow plough equipment and other front mounted equipment the front section of the chassis is exposed to great forces. The guidelines must be followed to avoid any failures. For some cases, the installation must be approved by Scania before the solution can be used on a Scania vehicle.

SCANIA HAVE INTRODUCED A NEW POWERTRAIN CALLED SCANIA SUPER

The introduction includes a completely new engine, a new gearbox and rear axle as well as a completely new fuel tank and wet kit tank program and also a modular way of placing the chassis components. The objectives for Scania Super have been improving fuel economy and improving flexibility for chassis components. The new diesel engine is a new design from the ground up which has made it possible to optimize the engine layout and introduce a better design in full. This include a new power-take off in a more suitable position and with higher performance than before. The gearbox G25CM is added to the G33CM platform. New Scania flexible chassis introduces a much-improved chassis composition flexibility, based on a new modular program. It increases frame space, improves body adaptability and creates a more efficient load distribution. New fuel tank section profile and Fuel Optimization Unit is introduced for improved performance and better utilization of fuel in tanks.​

TUBES FOR EASY CABLE ROUTING INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL

All Scania vehicles are equipped with tubes meant for facilitating routing of bobybuilders cable harness inside the instrument panel. The protective tubes facilitate retrofitting of cable harnesses, which may be required for e.g. new switches. The protective tubes have an inner diameter of 16.6 mm. There is a slight difference between left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles in that the tube on righthand drive vehicles is split while it is one full length tube on left-hand drive.​

SCANIA CERTIFICATES

Scania’s certificates are valid for trucks with Scania components fitted in a final position by a Scania factory or by a manufacturer appointed by Scania. The transport-mounted parts are connected to Scania’s component certificates and need to have installation certificate arranged by the bodybuilder.​

The bodybuilder is responsible for the vehicle’s bodywork and conversions. This means that application and receipt of final approval, certification or agreement with the certification authority is administered by the bodybuilder.​

A vehicle might be ordered from Scania without some of the components and functionality required by law, as components are often placed on or integrated into the bodywork. The bodybuilder is responsible that the vehicle meets all relevant legal requirements before registering the vehicle on the specific market.​

Scania certificates are found under Laws and Regulations.​

REAR UNDERRUN PROTECTIVE DEVICES (RUP)

As from 1st September 2021 any new registration of vehicles in EU must follow the new ECE R58-03 regulation.​

Rear underrun protective devices delivered from Scania from June 2021 have been certified according to ECE R58-03 and Scania contain a component certification.​

When the Rear underrun protective devices are delivered in transport position from Scania, the bodybuilder must arrange installation certificate with the Scania component certificate as a base. More information will be released in Truckbodybuilder instructions in due time including instructions how to finally assembly the transport positioned RUP.​

As for now the component certificate is available in Truckbodybuilder portal.​
