MAN CNG BUSES FOR PORTO
STCP (Sociedade de Transportes Colectivos do Porto – Society of Collective Transports of Oporto) has decided to completely renew her fleet of buses by acquiring 173 MAN bus chassis with CNG engines. The buses were bought within the scope of the public tender launched this year by the company, and they will all have their bodies built by the national bodybuilder CaetanoBus.
The delivery of the first units should start in 2018, and the last vehicles will be delivered during 2020.
The chassis fulfill the emissions standard Euro 6c with a 6-cylinder CNG engine, and have an output of 310 hp. After having their bodies built, the buses will be used in daily traffic in the city of Porto. 70 million passengers per year use the public transport in the Portuguese city, which means in average 200 000 people transported every day.
