Sweden and Germany launched a new innovation partnership on mobility and electrical roads that aims to strengthen sustainability, economic and technological competitiveness of both countries.
Under this partnership, the leading provider of industrial and marine engines Scania in co-operation with Siemens will be working on development of electrified road technology. After successful completion of their first project which resulted in the world’s first electrified road for heavy goods vehicles, being opened in central Sweden in June 2016, companies aim to keep working on solutions for a future of sustainable transport.
Scania’s President and CEO Henrik Henriksson emphasized that the company is fully committed to creating sustainability solutions and is ready to take the next step from field test to real commercial implementation. “I very much welcome the partnership and study that will be the first step of it, where Scania is happy to contribute with the experience we have gained together with our partners Siemens and the Region Gävleborg in running our hybrid trucks on the electrified road E16 outside Gävle,” he added.
