Nottingham hosts world's largest

Delivery of the world’s largest double-decker biogas-fuelled bus fleet has been completed with Nottingham City Transport having now received all 53 84-passenger-capacity vehicles provided by Scania and Alexander Dennis Limited (LDL).

The 11.5m long vehicles, each based on Scania’s 280bhp N 280 UD4x2 chassis and equipped with ADL’s Enviro400CBG City body, are now operating daily services on a number of routes in and around Nottingham.

Each bus has a minimum range of 250 miles on a single fill and offers reductions of carbon dioxide emissions by up to 84% and low emissions of nitrous oxides and particulate matter to help improve air quality.

“The successful introduction of the fleet backed by an installation of an in-house gas refuelling station, is redefining sustainability and demonstrating a new and exciting model of bus operation,” says Martin West, New Bus and Coach Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.

“Not only does this fleet deliver the green credentials of biogas, it also provides a premium, passenger-centric specification,” says Richard Matthews, ADL’s UK Sales Director.
