Wrightbus International and Volvo Bus win fourth
consecutive contract from SBS Transit Singapore

Wrightbus International – the international arm of Wrights Group – has, in conjunction with partner Volvo Bus, won a fourth consecutive significant contract from SBS Transit in Singapore, which will see them jointly supplying a further 415double deck buses over a three year period.

This latest contract, which is due for delivery between 2015 and 2017, follows in the footsteps of three previous orders which have already seen a total of 1,015 similar vehicles enter service with SBS Transit since 2010. Deliveries of the first tranche of 150 vehicles were completed in September 2011, followed by 300 more in January 2013 and a further 565 which will be fully in service by 2015.

The latest order – which is also based on Volvo Bus’ B9TL chassis – will again be supplied and packaged in complete knocked down (CKD) kits from the company’s Ballymena plant in Northern Ireland and then shipped to Singapore, where they are assembled by Comfort Delgro Engineering at their facility, supported by Wrightbus International technicians.
