Sentosa is Asia’s leading leisure destination and Singapore’s premier island resort getaway. The 500-hectare island resort is managed by Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) and is home to an exciting array of themed attractions.
Welcoming a growing number of local and international guests every year, Sentosa is an integral part of Singapore’s goal to be a global destination to work, live and play.
“We are pleased to have secured the order from SDC for supply and delivery of 6 low entry city buses for Sentosa. We are extremely honored that Volvo Buses have been chosen as the preferred partner when it comes to moving people safely and reliably within Sentosa Island.
Having delivered our last Volvo bus over a decade ago, we are proud to have continued this partnership with SDC”, says Volvo Buses Singapore Director, Manish Sahi.
Volvo Buses long standing relationship and cooperation with SDC has resulted in 21 of the 24 buses in the SDC fleet being Volvo B7R’s and B12B’s. Now, the newly delivered B8RLE Euro 6 units will replace ageing buses, including the Volvo B12B fleet.
The 12 meter city buses are built on a Euro 6 Volvo B8RLE chassis bodied by Singaporean based body builder, M/s. Liannex Corporation. The refined chassis paired with good body insulation, provides a smoother and quieter ride for the tourists.
All buses have been packaged with Volvo Service Contracts which will be executed by the Volvo authorized dealer in Singapore. In addition, they are also equipped with Volvo Telematics and I-coaching to help SDC optimize their fleet performance.
Volvo Buses would like to thank Sentosa Development Corporation for the long lasting partnership and trust.
