HCT takes its first Scania OmniCity double deckers 23 April 2010

Hackney-based HCT Group has taken delivery of its first 10 new Scania OnmiCity double deck buses.

George Mutch, HCT regional manager, explains that they were built to TfL specification and have been equipped with 230hp Scania Euro 5 engines, with EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) technology, matched to ZF 6HP504 automatic six-speed gearboxes.

"The big attraction, from our point of view, is that the Scania OmniCity means dealing with a single supplier. We have previously purchased used Scanias, so the brand's reliability and performance are already known to us," comments Mutch.

"Nonetheless, before committing to this order we evaluated the market before concluding the Scania package provided the best possible solution for our business needs," her adds.
