Construction fleets in Norway have been seeking the help of Scania to overcome the issue of dump trucks outgrowing the country’s public roads. The result for one haulage fleet, Per A Øren AS of Høyanger, a small municipality in west Norway, is the order of three new Scania 6×6 G500 construction trucks with extra large wheels and Allison 4500 Series transmissions with retarders.

To date, Per A Øren has ordered three of these trucks, which are able to perform the same task as the existing dump trucks. Interest among other haulers is high and the company often receives enquiries about their new construction trucks.

The G500 has also been tested with standard, as opposed to extra-large wheels, on one of the trucks.

The new trucks are the first in the history of the company that are equipped with Allison’s fully automatic transmissions; the remainder of the fleet is fitted with automated manual transmissions.
