EcoUpgraded Roll-on container

“Winds of change – less drag, more load”

Roll-on containers

These containers were upgraded from 355 MPa standard steel to Hardox® 450, increasing the load capacity by 2,100 kg for the total vehicle with a set of three containers. This allows more payload per trip and also reduces the fuel consum-ption for the empty vehicle. The removal of stiffeners on the sides also lowers wind drag, which further reduces the fuel consumption.

 

SSAB EcoUpgraded

Together with our customers, SSAB continually upgrades steel and equipment designs. SSAB EcoUpgraded saves CO2 both in steel production and during the full lifetime of the machine.

From the CO2 payback time and onwards, every extra hour brings additional savings.
