Volvo adds EGR exhaust gas recirculation to its successful 13-litre engine series

Volvo Trucks is widening its engine range with the launch of a D13 engine featuring EGR exhaust gas recirculation. The engine is available in four power output levels and is certified for current emission requirements according to Euro 4 – but without after-treatment of exhaust gases. Volvo is the first truck manufacturer in the world with this solution.
“The D13B with EGR is a complement to the D13A with SCR. SCR technology is still our main way ahead but now we are broadening our engine range and offer low-emission engines irrespective of exhaust emission control. Our industry-leading expertise within these two main diesel engine technologies thus benefits our customers to an even greater extent,” explains Mats Franzén, engine manager with the Product Strategy and Planning department at Volvo Trucks.
