Scania and Nanni cooperate
Swedish engine manufacturer Scania has reached an agreement with French company Nanni Diesel that will allow Nanni to add two engines from the Scania range to its extensive offering of marinised diesel engines.
Scania has a long reputation as the manufacturer of rugged and reliable diesel engines mainly for commercial craft that are based on the engines developed for the Scania range of truck and buses. Their engines are widely used in wind farm support craft and pilot boats.
Nanni offers a wide range of diesel engines that are based on engines from the Kubota, Toyota and John Deere ranges of engines. These engines are all marinised by Nanni to meet its own requirements and standards and the Kubota engines are offered in power outputs from 10 to 140hp. The Toyota engines expand the Nanni power output range from 200 to 370hp. These are the two engine ranges that were the basis of Nanni’s ranges with 21 options in power output. The John Deere engines also compete in the 150 to 230hp range but they are also offered in larger sizes with their with power outputs up to 760hp.
The new partnership between Nanni and Scania will allow Nanni to offer engines based on the Scania 13 litre, 6 cylinder in line diesel and their top of the range V-8 diesel that is based on a 16 litre engine. Nanni will take these two Scania engines in basic form and add their own marinisation and colour scheme to establish their new Platinum range. The top of the range V-8 engine will, under the Nanni banner offer a power output of 1200hp which is 50hp above the power that Scania currently offers on this model but this power rating will only be available for leisure craft versions of the Nanni engine. The two Scania based engines will form the basis of the new Platinum range of engines from Nanni and will be named N13 and N16 after the litre capacity of the engines.
The Platinum series of engines will comply with the latest emission regulations, EPA Tier 3 and RCD2 and they will be launched in September. Both Nanni and Scania are exhibiting at Seawork International 2018.
