MAN Truck & Bus awarded major order from Singapore for 200 bus chassis
ST Kinetics to deliver 200 complete buses on MAN chassis to Singapore transportation operator SMRT
The bus arm of Singapore transportation operator SMRT has ordered 200 complete buses based on MAN low-floor chassis Type NL 323 F from the MAN Truck & Bus sales partner Singapore Technologies Kinetics (ST Kinetics). The order is valued in the high double-digit Euro millions. Delivery of the vehicles will be completed by the end of 2012. This bus chassis for a body length of 12 meters is the ideal basis for the south-east Asian island city-state’s reliable, high-performing and dynamic local public transport system.
Keeping things moving briskly are the six-cylinder diesel engines with an output of 235 kW (320 hp). For particularly effective exhaust-gas management, the engines are equipped with the eco-friendly MAN PM-Kat and thus comply with the Euro V standard. For the safety of the passengers being transported there is the electronic braking system EBS, which shortens the braking distance, optimally assisting the driver even in difficult braking maneuvers.
SMRT’s order to expand and modernize its fleet is ST Kinetics’ first major order for city buses. This major order not only equips SMRT Buses with cost-effective, environmentally friendly buses but is also a milestone in the sales partnership between MAN Truck & Bus and ST Kinetics.
