Taking up duties on Golden Tours’ sightseeing work in London are 10 B9TLs with MCV open-top bodywork, supplied by Volvo Bus (01926 401777). .
The chassis were built in Sweden and shipped to MCV’s Cairo plant for bodying. The buses â€“ which join six others delivered in 2013 â€“ are 10.3m long and are powered by Volvo’s nine-litre D9B engine coupled to a ZF EcoLife gearbox.
â€œWe have been delighted with the performance and reliability of the open-top B9TLs we received last year,â€ says Nick Palan, Golden Tours MD. â€œThey have proven very popular with our drivers and customers. With this latest delivery, Volvo Bus once again met our exacting requirements.â€ The partnership with MCV extends the scope of Volvo’s body options, adds Regional Sales Manager Phil Fletcher.
