Ethanol Bus Sale Keeps Sweden Fossil Free

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Swedish bus manufacturer Scania has sold 123 ethanol-fuelled suburban buses since the beginning of 2005. The bus sale to Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL), the public transport operator in greater Stockholm, was the largest single order for the company. Stockholm already has the world’s largest fleet of ethanol buses, which operate mainly in the inner city. The new buses will be put into suburban operation during autumn of 2005. When deliveries are concluded in early 2006, around 350 ethanol buses will be operating in the SL fleet. Scania’s subsidiary Scania Sverige AB has also signed a 4-year service and maintenance agreement for 160 of the buses. The ethanol buses to SL are equipped with 9-liter, 230 hp ethanol engines.
