NOx Certification Level – 0.2 g/hp-hr No Credits EPA’10 certification applied for: July, 2009. Still California Certified Clean Idle No issues expected. Volvo Trucks North America EPA’10 Testing Status Where are we in the testing development curve? We are ahead of previous emission generations. 23 SCR viability trucks on test in US since 2002. Two full winters First five EPA’10 test trucks to a customer 10/’07. on this test fleet Now over thirty EPA’10 test trucks with SCR in customer’s hands. Volvo Trucks North America EPA ’10 Cold Weather Testing • -40o, bobtail (light loading maximizes exhaust after- treatment system issues) • All systems performed as expected: PASSED Volvo Trucks North America EPA’10 Production Status We have been assembling our EPA’10 test engines on the Hagerstown MD production line, not in the engineering lab, for over a year. We have assembled all test trucks at our Dublin VA assembly facility and are now assembling with production-level parts stocked on line. We have almost 100 Volvo ‘p-start’ trucks on order for build in calendar 2009 with EPA’10 emission control. These trucks will help us maximize quality in 2010. Volvo Trucks North America Global SCR Status Volvo has the benefit of being a global manufacturer. The number of Class 8 Volvo Group trucks worldwide, equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction since 2003, now exceeds 225,000. The cumulative experience of those trucks now exceeds 25,000,000,000 miles with SCR Volvo Trucks North America DEF Availability New Gilbarco DEF Dispenser All Volvos will fill on the driver’s with heated DEF tank and side. Volvo will utilize the magnetic nozzle storage interlock device in the DEF fill that will help prevent misfiling. Volvo Trucks North America Low DEF Tank Level: Driver Warning & Inducement DEF Tank Low Amber Triggers Level Indicator Warning Lamp Inducement >12% DEF Tank Gauge None None None (>16% DEF Remaining) Solid <=12% DEF Tank Gauge (~16% DEF Remaining) None None Flashing 0% DEF Tank Gauge 25% torque None (~4% DEF Remaining) reduction Volvo DEF Tank 0% DEF Tank Gauge Flashing 5 mph road Low Level Insufficient DEF Pump Pressure None speed limit (1) Indicator Diesel Fuel Refueling >15% Note (1): Vehicle has to be fueled by 15% or more diesel before 5 mph RSL is invoked. This prevents the truck from being stopped on the road, will likely be at a retail fueling facility where DEF is available. Volvo Trucks North America Volvo In-Tank Heater / Pickup Fits inside DEF tank from top Circulates engine coolant through the Diesel Exhaust Fluid to maintain proper temperature – 60oF All stainless steel, high-quality DEF level gage float (in center), with wiring harness DEF pickup with intake filter No tank insulation is required By the way – Volvo Group has already delivered over 225,000 of this part. Like the rest of the SCR system, it’s proven. It works. Volvo Trucks North America Maintenance: Few Changes What about the base engine? Base engine will only experience minor changes. – Same proven injection system – Same camshaft – Same cylinder head – Same block Oil Drain Interval: Unchanged (35,000 miles in normal service) Volvo Trucks North America Maintenance: Underhood Simplicity Excellent access, essentially unchanged since 1995 Volvo Trucks North America Higher D13 Ratings D13 Power to 500 hp @ 1800 rpm Torque to 1750 lb-ft @ 1050 rpm 600 500 400 Power (bhp) Sweet Spot – 300 200 Still 1300-1500 0.74 => 3.42:1 100 0 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000 2200 2400 Engine Speed (rpm) Volvo Trucks North America Higher Engine Brake Ratings • 500 hp @ 2200 rpm • 325 hp @ 1500 rpm Compare. Volvo Trucks North America VOLVO’S SCR TECHNOLOGY ELIMINATES ACTIVE REGENERATION FOR 2010 HIGHWAY TRUCKS* * except in “extremely severe” duty cycles Volvo Trucks North America No Active Regeneration No dash lights come on No special driver training or familiarization Much lower system temperatures Reduced thermal cycling No limitations on where the driver can go No interruptions of PTO activity Higher productivity Reduced consumption of fuel Lower operating expenses All the driver has to do is periodically top off the DEF tank No longer does the driver have to be “An Integral Part of the Engine’s Emission Control Device” Volvo Trucks North America
