Default 36 more electric buses for London

RATP Dev London has selected a joint venture of Shenzhen-based BYD and
Alexander Dennis as preferred bidder to supply 36 electric buses. The
operator signed a memorandum of understanding with BYD on June 14 at the
Guangdong Economic & Trade Co-operation Conference in London, and contract
signature is due in the next few weeks.

The joint venture will supply its Enviro200 model, with deliveries starting
in early 2018. The 10·8 m long bus with capacity for 76 passengers is
designed for more restrictive route conditions than the 12 m long Enviro200
buses already in service in London. The supplier says that each
battery-powered bus is guaranteed to complete a full day’s duty cycle
between charges.

The fleet will be based at London United’s Shepherd’s Bush garage. The
buses will be put into service on routes C1 and 70, which are being
converted to electric operation.

‘RATP Dev London’s strategic move to convert our Shepherd’s Bush garage to
zero emissions operations is closely aligned to the policy of our parent
company to convert its Paris bus fleet to zero emissions operations’, said
Tim Jackson, CEO of RATP Dev’s UK operations. ‘We are committed to playing
a leading role in the sector in the energy transition and there is close
dialogue between the London and Paris operations over the technical,
operational and commercial aspects of this transformation.’

BYD and Falkirk-based Alexander Dennis signed a joint venture agreement in
2015 to manufacture electric buses for the UK market.
