The last of the ordered vehicles were delivered to SCAI just a few days ago.
Hubertus Troska, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks said: "We are very pleased to help with the reconstruction of Iraq by supplying 250 Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks to SCAI. Our vehicles are perfect for use in rough terrain, where they clearly demonstrate their quality and reliability".
This was the first time that Mercedes-Benz Trucks has supplied vehicles to SCAI. The contract between Daimler and SCAI, which covers the delivery of Mercedes-Benz trucks to Iraq, represented a clear commitment to the country’s reconstruction efforts when it was signed in Baghdad in February 2010. The delivery of the 250 Actros trucks marks a further important step toward this goal.
The 250 Actros were manufactured at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth and delivered to Iraq as complete vehicles. SCAI is equipping the trucks onsite with equipment for various construction applications. The order can broken down to: 100 Actros 3331K dump truck chassis and 150 Actros 3340S tractors for carrying water and fuel tanks or similar semitrailers. All of the vehicles are equipped with powerful Euro-II V6 engines and a heavy-duty 16-speed transmission.
