IVECO CONTRIBUTES TO REDUCE EMISSIONS IN LIMA
Peru is modernizing its public transport and especially the busfleet to meet new sustainable standards. For the city of Lima
Iveco Bus, together with dealer Motored, has delivered 42 urban buses CC170E20 powered by CNG to the company Transporte y Servicios Virgen de la Puerta S.A (VIPusa). With the new technology of Iveco Natural Power, the first and most complete range of vehicles 100% powered by CNG is now acquired by the Peruvian carrier.
The bus is designed to meet the environmental demands for the future. The chassis CC170E20, manufactured in the Iveco-plant in the Argentinian town of Ferreyra, is equipped with an FPT Industrial NEF 6 CNG engine capable of generating 200 hp and a maximum torque of 650 Nm. The driveline complies with the Euro V emission regulations. Six tanks of 27.2 m3 each, allowing the supply of 163.2 m3 of CNG per bus. The NEF 6 engine has a Multi-Point Common Rail injection system, responsible for low consumption of fuel, allowing also a lower emission of polluting gases and less noise pollution.
This sale was made possible due to a financial operation of the CNH Ind Capital bank. The delivery took place in the city of Lima and is for Peruvian Iveco-dealer Motored the most important one generated in Peru. “The new CC170E20 CNG model is an efficient, reliable option and also has a great technology in the treatment of emissions, generating a lower impact on the environment”, says a Motored spokesman. The Peruvian company, responsible for urban passenger transport in the city of Lima will begin to use their new units immediately.
