The trucks will take part in the reconstruction efforts, and consisted of 100 Actros 3331K dump truck chassis and 150 Actros 3340S tractors for carrying water and fuel tanks or similar semitrailers.
The vehicles are equipped with Euro II V6 engines and a heavy-duty 16-speed transmission. They were shipped to Iraq as complete vehicles.
The recently-completed order was the first time Mercedes had supplied truck to SCAI, with the contract originally signed in Baghdad in February 2010.
“We’re very pleased to help with the reconstruction of Iraq by supplying 250 Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks to SCAI,” says Hubertus Troska, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks. “Our vehicles are perfect for use in rough terrain, where they clearly demonstrate their quality and reliability.”
