IVECO BUS to Put 150 Natural Gas Buses on Paris Streets
IVECO BUS has won a contract to supply RATP (the state-owned Parisian public transport operator) with its articulated buses designed to operate on CNG and renewable natural gas (RNG). This contract follows an order in 2014 for some 1,000 buses.
The buses, manufactured at IVECO BUS’s plant in Annonay, France, are powered by the natural gas Cursor 8 NP engine manufactured by CNH Industrial’s powertrain business, FPT Industrial, at its Bourbon-Lancy site in France. More than 1,000 Cursor 8 NP engines are manufactured here annually for use in transport and industry throughout the world.
The buses can run on RNG, produced from waste, which guarantees a neutral carbon footprint and other environmental benefits—improved air quality, noise reduction and more efficient waste management—to public transport authorities and major cities.
