Mainland chooses SCR for Euro 4


Northampton-based Mainland Group, a member of the Pall-Ex network, has taken delivery of its first Euro 4 vehicle after running a trial with 7.5 tonne demonstrators from different manufacturers, to determine its preference for EGR v SCR.
The Iveco Eurocargo 75E16 is the first of 12 identical vehicles to be delivered in 2007, and will be followed by a mixture of Daily, 18 tonne Eurocargo and Stralis 6×2 tractor units.
Mike Bacon, managing director of Mainland, said : “We ran the Eurocargo for a month and found that filling up with AdBlue was a lot less problematic than expected. It was a very quick and easy process, and considering it only needs to be done every two to three weeks, we realised that it just wasn’t an issue. The fuel consumption on the Eurocargo was also better than the EGR equivalent.”
