Volvo FH16 750 6x2 - Used Truck of the Week

Volvo FH16 750

Used Truck of the Week is a 2015 top of the range Volvo FH16 750 6x2 being sold by MM Acquisitions. Powered by Volvo’s mighty 16-litre engine, the FH 750 has, you guessed it, 750 hp but also a massive 3,550 Nm of torque.

This Volvo FH was first registered in May 2015, which means it has a Euro-6 engine suitable for entry into the London ULEZ (Ultra-Low Emission Zone), and has covered a reasonable 670,000km during that time.

It has a twin sleeper Globetrotter cab which has a top bunk that can be folded up towards the ceiling to create more space for use as a single-bed sleeper, and has useful facilities including a fridge-freezer.

Other features of this are a mid-lift axle and full aluminium chassis infills to make coupling and uncoupling safer. The FH 750 has got alloy wheels to reduce the weight of the truck and has a sliding fifth wheel.

Scania opens environmentally friendly customer support centre

Scania’s new Milton Keynes-based UK customer support centre was opened by his Excellency Torbjörn Sohlström, the UK ambassador of Sweden. 

The 6,200m sq site is spread across three storeys and covers nearly 8-acres and has been built, Scania says, with sustainability and the future in mind. As a result, the building will reduce C02 emissions by a minimum of 10%, while water usage will be reduced by 25%.

The amount of energy powering the support centre from renewable sources totals 10%; there are 385m sq of photovoltaic panels on the roof, with air source heat pumps transferring outside heat into the building.
