Lincolnshire based retrofit solutions company, Eminox is the first company to be approved for the Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS) for the UK’s best-selling coach, the Volvo B9R, with just six months to go before the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into force.
The company will work with Hampshire based luxury coach hire business, Lucketts Travel, amongst others, to retrofit its coaches to ensure it meets Euro VI standards across its fleet.
Showcasing at Euro Bus Expo between 30 October and 1 November 2018 at the NEC, Carlos Vicente, Retrofit sales director for Eminox said, ‘Eminox was the first company to gain CVRAS accreditation on buses and refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) and we’ve now achieved another first on coaches with the Volvo B9R.
‘Eminox leads the market in emissions reduction for buses and coaches and our presence at Euro Bus Expo demonstrates our commitment to the sector – and plans for the future.
‘Time is running out to equip coach and bus fleets for the London ULEZ and the growing number of Clean Air Zones (CAZ). We invite operators to talk to us about their needs and how we can use our experience and expertise to help them achieve Euro VI standards ahead of the deadline.’
To act as a focus for its work in the coach market, Eminox has also launched its new Clean Air Zone Retrofit Development Centre. Their team is working closely with industry partners to achieve further CVRAS accreditations for a wide range of vehicles ahead of the London ULEZ and other emissions zones.
