Order for 113 Volvo city buses in the Netherlands

Volvo Buses has received an order for 113 low-emission city buses from Volvo’s international customer Veolia, with presence in different area’s in the Netherlands.
The order for 113 buses is the largest single order so far for Volvo Buses in the Netherlands. The entire order comprises Volvo’s city bus model, the Volvo 7700. 75 of the buses are 12-meter models and the remaining 38 are 18-meter articulated buses.

The buses are equipped with Volvo’s new 9-liter diesel engine with the SCR technology, which gives the buses lower emissions and lower fuel consumption then before.

Veolia has chosen for Volvo again based on their good experiences, the attractive life-cycle costs and the flexible delivery possibilities. The ordered buses will be used in the Brabant province in southern Netherlands. Production of the buses will take place in Volvo’s plant in Poland and deliveries will be made during the fourth quarter of 2007.
