SCA first with electric timber truck in the forest

For two years, SCA has operated the world's first electric timber truck for timber transports between SCA's timber terminal Gimonäs and Obbola paper mill.

"It's going very well. We have also tried using the truck to collect timber in the forest, and it was a very successful trial. Therefore, we felt it was time to take the next step in electrifying our heavy transports together with Scania," says Mikael Sundelin, Head of Business Development at Industrial Supply, SCA Skog.

Unlike the electric timber truck in Umeå, the new truck will be equipped with a crane, which is common for most timber trucks collecting timber in the forest.

"Our new electric timber truck has a better range and will drive to timber storage areas in the forest where it loads the timber for further transport to one of our timber terminals. We expect the truck to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 170 tons per year compared to a regular timber truck," says Anton Ahlinder, Business Developer at Industrial Supply, SCA Skog.
