Scania has won a public tender in Milan, Italy, to supply up to 200 trucks for
refuse collection. The order includes service contracts for the vehicles.
The trucks will be supplied to Amsa S.p.A., a provider of street cleaning and
waste management services, which operates in both centralMilanand surrounding
municipalities. The company issued the tender with the aim of strengthening the
fleet of vehicles used by its urban refuse collection service.
Scania and its bodybuilding partner Farid Industrie worked together on the
tender application to produce a framework agreement for rear-loader trucks. The
agreement will mean delivery of up to 100 diesel trucks and up to 100 compressed
natural gas (CNG) trucks over a period of 24 months from the signing of the
contract. The vehicles will be 3-axle Scania P-series trucks and will be powered
by a 9-litre 250 or 280 hp engine.
“This order is extremely important as it represents further advancement of our
relationship with both AMSA and Farid Industrie,” says Franco Fenoglio, Managing
Director at Italscania S.p.A. “We will supply the client with a high-quality
product, tailor-made for this specific application. The Euro 6 engine range,
which includes diesel and gas versions, is the perfect choice for operators with
strict environmental sustainability demands.”
The vehicles are covered by service contracts through Scania’s workshop network.
The close collaboration with Farid Industrie has allowed Scania to significantly
increase its market share in the public and special-purpose segments in Italy
over the past 18 months.
