2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineApril 16, 2019

The leading Italian specialist in rental gensets [equipment whose function is to convert the so-called heat capacity into mechanical energy and then into electrical energy], BRUNO, has partnered with engine manufacturer Scania. BRUNO will develop its extensive range of gensets using Scania‘s Stage V emission compliant engines.

At BAUMA in Munich in early April, BRUNO exhibited a new rental genset with Scania‘s DC13, 450 kVA engine, the first Scania Stage V application for gensets.

“With our solid experience in the rental business and high level of competence and specialisation, we are prepared to address the challenges mandated by the transition from Stage IIIA to Stage V emission compliance in Europe,” says Domenico De Gianni, export director, BRUNO. “To successfully meet this challenge, BRUNO will rely on the partnership with Scania for technological support and advanced professional skills.”

With an annual production capacity of more than 35,000 gensets, BRUNO has three manufacturing plants in Italy and additional branches in Germany and UK. Its FUSTEQ series include gensets ranging from 8 to 800 kVA in ultra-silent canopies and from 800 up to 2500 kVA in 20‘and 40‘ high cube containers. In addition to low noise levels, FUSTEQ gensets stand out for the innovative VSi cooling system controlled by a variable speed inverter with electric radiator and the very low fuel consumption.

By entering into the partnership with Scania, BRUNO particularly recognised its engine performance, low fuel consumption and Scania‘s extensive service network.

“We are very proud of partnering with one of the leading genset manufacturers in Europe”, says Franco Fenoglio, managing director, Italscania. “We hope this is only the beginning of a lifelong relationship that will set new standards for excellence.”
