In the end, it was a Scania P320 B6x2*4 rechargeable hybrid carrier, and not a tractor, that TFMO acquired to transport refrigerated finished products. This Scania PHEV runs between the Lyon sites of Marcy l’Etoile and Craponne of its client, the bioMérieux laboratory. These journeys are made within the framework of a 40 km daily mid-urban, mid-suburb shuttle. This operation was set up with the financial support of bioMérieux. It enables the two partners to inaugurate Scania’s new range of hybrid trucks.
36 t over 60 km in 100% electric mode
The Scania PHEV carrier is equipped with a GE281 electric machine. With its two electric motors, it deploys 230 kW of continuous power and 290 kW peak. The vehicle moves its 36 t of gross vehicle weight (GVW) over 60 km in 100% electric mode. Its six-speed Opticruise gearbox drives an engageable power take-off when stationary or on the move. The GE281 powers the Chéreau vacuum-insulated refrigerated box and its rear door airflow curtain, and the Carrier refrigeration unit. It also drives an adaptive cruise control, with downhill speed control and uninterrupted recovery of deceleration energy, and a Start&Stop system.
Contribution of 74 kW at start-up or in hills
In Power mode, the GE281 adds 74 kW to the 320 hp DC09 thermal engine, to assist it in starting. This mode also allows you to climb hills or tow heavy loads. This reduces its carbon emissions by 40%. The three-pack of 30 kWh batteries charges in 35 minutes on a 95 kW DC charger. This pack weighs only 750 kg, adding 250 kg of payload compared to thermal models. bioMérieux is aiming for a 50% reduction in its greenhouse gases by 2030 compared to 2019. “This hybrid shuttle illustrates bioMérieux’s desire to develop eco-responsible actions in order to limit its environmental impact. »
The Scania PHEV, 99% electric tours for TFMO
TFMO also appreciates its Scania PHEV. “This vehicle is also equipped with a 360° camera system consisting of four cameras. It also has a control screen in the cabin which guarantees permanent safety during maneuvers, as our client wanted, comments Franck Guerpillon, President of TFMO. Exclusively dedicated to transporting bioMérieux, this vehicle is operated in two shifts from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. This Scania PHEV makes several dozen daily stops. It is recharged at a terminal supplied with green electricity on one of the sites. And works 99% in electric mode. Its heat engine, which is only used to secure journeys, could be powered with B100 or HVO. This would reduce the vehicle’s CO2 emissions by up to 90%.
