|Swedish bus manufacturer Scania has landed its biggest deal yet to supply city buses in the Estonian capital of Tallinn.
The municipal bus operator Tallinn Bus Company is to buy 65 of Scania's low-floor OmniLink buses, all of which will come equipped with nine-litre Euro 4 engines featuring EGR environmental technology for good fuel economy.
The company said that, as well as good service and parts support, this technology was one of the reasons why its buses were chosen.
"This is an order that further reinforces our already strong presence in the Estonian city bus market," said Ken Tarnstrom, sales director at Scania.
The buses will be made at Scania's assembly plant in Poland and are due for delivery during 2007 and 2008.
Earlier this week Scania said it had received an order for around 300 construction trucks from the Brazilian mining company Vale do Rio Doce. They will be used to transport iron ore at the company's project in Minas Gerais.
