Swedish vehicle manufacturer Scania has broken into the natural gas bus market in Norway, marked by the delivery of 36 gas-powered buses to passenger transport company Nobina. The new Scania OmniExpress 3.20 LE Euro 6 buses are replacing older buses operating in the Ski area, southeast of Oslo.
The buses can be fuelled with compressed natural gas, CNG and biogas which all contribute to lower emissions of greenhouse gases and noise.
Nobina is the largest bus transport company in the Nordic region. The company has 7,000 employees and operates 4,000 buses in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
Recently, public transport companies in Colombia and Indonesia have also taken deliveries of Scania gas buses.
