Ten Scania OmniExpress tourers for Bowen Travel 15 July 2010

Scania (GB) has secured an order for 10 OmniExpress 36 touring coaches from the Bowen Travel Group, following trials of a Euro 4 unit in its Lincolnshire based Appleby 'Elite' fleet.

All are being built on Scania EB 4x2 chassis, equipped with 400hp Scania Euro 5 EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) engines matched to Scania Opticruise 12-speed automated gearboxes.

The order comprises nine units built to the current Bowens touring coach specification, with the tenth vehicle being built to the company's 44 leather seat 'Elite' standard.

Kevin Lower, chairman and chief executive of Bowen, says: "An additional benefit is that the full two-year repair and maintenance contract provided with this product enables us to project our operating costs for at least the next two years."

And he adds: "These vehicles will be deployed across our Bowens division in the Midlands and the Applebys division in Lincolnshire. We believe this significant upgrade to our frontline touring vehicles will provide a much enhanced experience for the customers travelling on our highly successful coach holiday programme."
