Volvo Penta will supply engines to power Terberg’s RT223 roro tractors.
Volvo Penta and Terberg are extending their partnership, with the engine supplier providing engines for Terberg’s yard and roro tractors.

Starting in early 2015, Volvo will provide Terberg with Stage IV/Tier 4 Final and Stage IIIA/Tier 3 8 l diesel engines ranging from 160 kW to 235 kW. The engines will power Terberg’s YT222 yard tractors and its RT223, RT283 and RT323 roro tractors.

Volvo Penta has supplied engines to Terberg since the 1970s.

Not only does Terberg use Volvo engines, but Volvo Penta also distributes Volvo Trucks parts and axles to the company. Terberg also modifies standard Volvo trucks by adding driven and non-driven axles to the drivelines.

"For Terberg, Volvo Penta isn’t just an engine supplier — we supply them with full systems," says Johan Carlström, business development manager at Volvo Penta. "It’s a way for us to differentiate ourselves from the competition and create and maintain strong relationships with our customers, particularly long-time partners like Terberg."

Volvo Penta has been testing its Stage IV/Tier 4 Final engines in materials handling applications at ports in Felixstowe, UK, and Gothenburg, Sweden, and says feedback from the operators has been positive regarding noise levels, drivability and fuel consumption.

Terberg is a Dutch producer of materials handling equipment used in ports, logistics, railroads, construction and airports. The company’s subsidiaries also manufacture other products including waste handling equipment, fire engines and fire trucks, and forklifts.
