Detroit Diesel says its technicians will be well-prepared to service 2010 engines with SCR.
REDFORD, Mich. — Detroit Diesel says technician training on EPA2010 equipment is already well underway.
In January, 2010, Detroit Diesel will use selective catalytic reduction (SCR) on its engines to comply with EPA2010 emissions regulations. The company has dubbed its 2010 solution ‘BlueTec’ and has already begun training dealers and technicians on how to service the new equipment, the company says.
It completed its first technician training course in December and has now conducted seven hands-on courses for dealers and distributors, as well as customers receiving 2010 demonstration units.
“Our course developers were able to leverage Daimler’s BlueTec experience when designing the course. Their experience gave us a unique advantage and helped us build a great training curriculum,” said Kevin Holland, senior manager, service training for Daimler Trucks North America. He noted Daimler has more than 200,000 BlueTec-equipped trucks in service worldwide.
“Our goal with introducing this course is to provide our network with a wealth of information on Detroit Diesel’s BlueTec well in advance of its implementation to be sure our customer’s benefit from the best performing network,” said Holland.
The technician course includes: an introduction to BlueTec; tools specific to 2010; system diagnostics; SCR system components; and more.
