Nor­way’s good oil

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Bikes -

THE power race hit the road when the first 700-horse­power Volvo FH16 700 was de­liv­ered to its Nor­we­gian owner. The truck will be used in long-haul work cart­ing equip­ment for the oil in­dus­try in the west of Nor­way. ‘‘The rea­son we chose the FH16 700 is that we haul loads of up to 50 tonnes,’’ ex­cited owner Tore Asse says. ‘‘The roads are of­ten nar­row and there may be kilo­me­tre-long gra­di­ents of be­tween six and 10 per cent, so you can never re­ally have too much power.’’
