SCR also has some significant benefits in that it can already meet Euro 5 standards, which are not mandated in Australia until 2011. SCR technology is not only simple and cost efficient, it provides the platform for future compliance.
Customers considering the new Volvo FL or Volvo FE models are now able to choose their level of compliance and can purchase a truck with a Euro 5 option which is three years more advanced than what is officially required. This option is also available on the Volvo FM and FH models through special order.
EGR has not been ignored and we have maintained our flexibility offering EGR for those customers whose application would be better met by an EGR truck. By offering this alternative, we can meet the needs and special build requirements of our customers.
