Volvo awarded order for 115 buses to Hong Kong5/17/10
This most recent supply contract will see Volvo deliver the 115 double-deckers during early 2011 to Hong Kong.
This latest order is added to and will follow on from the 245 Volvo double-decker and single-decker buses already ordered by KMB for delivery during 2010. This continued supply maintains KMB as Volvo’s largest double-deck customer in Asia.
KMB again selected the Volvo 9 liter SCR Euro V compliant engine, which when operated by KMB with cleaner diesel and operational driving system adjustments will contribute to a significant reduction in emission levels.
Wrightbus will again body the 115 double-deckers at the company’s plant in Northern Ireland. This Volvo-Wrightbus partnership continues to have an important strategic link in Asia to key customers KMB in Hong Kong & SBS Transit in Singapore where jointly orders for a total of 440 Volvo B9TL Wrightbus double-deckers are now secured and in the industrial pipeline.
