Daimler to supply engines and axles to Russian truckmaker Kamaz

Daimler, the world’s largest truckmaker, and Russian truck manufacturer Kamaz have signed a contract covering the supply of engines and axles for the Russian company’s trucks and buses.

As part of the agreement, Kamaz will receive OM 457 truck diesel engines and M 906 bus natural gas engines made by Daimler. The contract also includes the delivery of front and rear axles for trucks and buses to the Russian manufacturer, headquartered in Naberezhnye Chelny in the Russian Republic of Tartastan. The completely assembled components will be supplied to Russia by the Mercedes-Benz plants in Mannheim (engines), Kassel, and Gaggenau (axles).

The two partners expect the delivery volume to exceed in a first stage 7,000 engines and 15,000 axles per year. Getting Daimler’s cleaner-burning engines will save development costs for Kamaz as Russia will introduce stricter laws to reduce pollution. In 2013, Russia will introduce tougher truck emissions standards equivalent to the older Euro IV.

The EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) compliant natural gas engines with an output of 170 kW (231 hp) to 205 kW (279 hp) and the Euro V compliant diesel engines with a performance of 260 kW (354 hp) to 335 kW (456 hp) will from be a part of Kamaz’ engine lineup.
