Volvo Trucks named first U.S. manufacturer to achieve dual energy certifications

Truck manufacturer's New River Valley assembly plant in Dublin, Va. is the first U.S. facility to be certified to the ISO 50001 standards under a pilot program supported by the U.S. DOE.

"The tremendous energy reduction efforts at NRV have really resonated with our customers visiting the plant as well. They know their Volvo trucks are fuel efficient and they can see how that care for the environment is intertwined throughout the Volvo culture and manufacturing process," Huibers said.

Every Volvo truck sold in North America is assembled in the U.S. at the NRV plant. Since introducing Volvo D11, D13 and D16 engines with SCR aftertreatment technology to meet current EPA standards, Volvo Trucks has continued to advance its fuel-efficiency leadership, with near-zero regulated emissions.
