Epiroc reduces emissions and fuel consumption through new Stage V engine option for Scooptram ST14

September 1, 2022

Lower fuel consumption and reduced environmental footprint – the new Cummins X12 Stage V engine for Scooptram ST14 ensures a productive and reliable solution to meet emission regulations and reduce diesel particulates. 

“We are happy to further expand our Stage V offering by adding the Stage V engine to Scooptram ST14. This means fulfillment of the latest emission standards in the EU and North America. We also expect other regions to follow the development towards more sustainable operations”, says Erik Gert, Global product manager – Scooptram at Epiroc’s Underground division.


First introduced in 2017, the Cummins X12 Stage V engine builds on Cummins proven technology. The emissions of toxic gases and diesel particulate matter (DPM) are reduced by a sophisticated aftertreatment system consisting of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) combined with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR).


“By reducing the particles in the diesel exhaust, a better working environment and air quality for the people working in the mine can be reached. In addition, the Stage V engine is expected to reduce diesel consumption with up to 5% compared to Stage IIIA engines” says Erik Gert.


The Cummins X12 Stage V engine is globally available as an option for Scooptram ST14 and Minetruck MT436B. Since before, Epiroc also offers Stage V engines for Scooptram ST18, Minetruck MT42, Minetruck MT65 and Minetruck MT54. 


Stage V engines requires ultra-low sulphur fuel to operate, which reduces harmful emissions compared to traditional diesel. The Cummins X12 engine is approved to use paraffinic fuel, meeting the EN 15940 requirements. Paraffinic fuels, often called “clean diesel”, are made from alternative feedstocks, including natural gas (GTL, gas-to-liquid), vegetable oils, waste and residues (HVO, hydrotreated vegetable oil).
