    “I’m more interested in the overall perspective of the engine,” Jenny explains. “I’m not very interested in radii of pipes and such details. I do, however, like to be in contact with people, and that’s what working at the V8 engine development department is about. We are the oil in the machinery. Our main task is to coordinate the work between the different development teams.”The V8 team makes the individual parts fit into the bigger picture

    The V8 engine development team doesn’t draw and design specific parts for the engine. That’s done by engineers and calculators in the design teams, who are responsible for their individual parts for Scania’s entire range of engines, including gas- and ethanol-fuelled engines, industrial, marine and truck engines and also for how different cylinder configurations fit into Scania’s modular system. It’s the V8 team’s role to contribute ideas so the individual parts fit into the bigger picture.

    “From an engine perspective, our interface is towards the chassis and the cab, while on the organisational perspective we have interfaces with the entire organisation, from production units to aftersales,”

    “I got to know other fun and committed people and also see more of the company,” says Frida, who has been working at Scania for two years and likes the overall perspective she gets in her work.

    Seeing and understanding the business and needs of both Scania and the customer. The opportunity to get a truck licence is also something that helps her in her work, as it allows her to understand what a driver does and what the different positions of the gearbox require.

    “A late Thursday evening after a theory lecture is a pure delight, when I’ve had the chance to really let my inner nerd loose.”

    And woe betide us if there’s a screw loose! Göran explains that there are more than 800 screws of 55 different types keeping the V8 engine together, coming in at a combined weight of 50 kilos. Some of these screws have huge torque, too – the biggest being more than 900 Newtonmetres.

    It’s becoming clear from our conversation that there’s nothing ordinary about the V8 engine whatsoever.

    Göran agrees. Although he has worked in Engine Layout for 11 years and has been with Scania for nearly 26 years, he says, “I was actually surprised when I realised just how many screws there were and how much they weighed.”

    “We are caring for the engine from beginning to end, and some tests can take 10 to 15 weeks from start to finish,” explains Johan, adding, “The engine changes quite a lot over the different stages of our testing. An engine in the first generation of the project can be quite different from how it is in year three or in the generation just before the start of the production process. The whole test process for each engine can mean over 1,000 hours in the test benches. It takes a long time.”Involvement in the whole process

    From the original question raised by a designer, it’s the durability test leader who goes through the whole test process. That involves checking the part, discussing the issue with other designers, testing the parts in different engines, ordering the test parts and monitoring how the engine performs, before completing an inspection report for those responsible for the management of the engine’s development.

    And, he adds, “It’s really important to get it right. If we make a mistake and the engine is not as it should be, or it runs in the wrong way, we end up with the wrong design and we don’t adjust for the faults, or perhaps we even make unnecessary adjustments.”

    So it’s quite an intense process, then?

    “You have a lot on your mind and it can be hard to switch off,” Johan agrees. “Weekends, evenings, whenever, the phone will ring and someone is usually calling to ask me something about a part of the engine.”
