Scania’s distributor in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Al-Shirawi Enterprises, has sold a further 120 city buses to Dubai municipality. The new order follows last summer’s delivery of 119 buses.
Swedish heavy-vehicle manufacturer Scania manufactures bus chassis fitted with Brazilian Marcopolo bodies, in Scania’s factory in Sao Paolo during the second half of year 2002. Including a previous sale of 30 buses, Dubai municipality has ordered a total of 269 Scania buses for its urban public-transport operations.
The buses are built on Scania’s two-axle L94 chassis and are powered by Swedish-made engines. After the bodies are fitted, the finished buses are transported from Brazil directly to Dubai. — (menareport.com)
