Record of natural gas buses in France

February 8, 2019. A record order of 37 Iveco Crossway Natural Power coaches for the Dracénie Region, France, is to be delivered by the end of 2019, the company confirms.

   The 37 Crossway Natural Power (NP) coaches will be operated by Beltrame Group, and will be delivered to Dracénie Regional Council (Dracénie Provence Verdon agglomeration (DPVA).

   A commitment charter to promote energy transition was signed by the DPVA, Iveco Bus and the Beltrame Group during a reception held in Draguignan, France, in the presence of a number of local and regional political dignitaries. Guests were able to test drive a Crossway NP and a Daily Blue Power NP.

   "We chose to renew our fleet with natural gas vehicles to protect the environment and to meet energy transition legislation. These vehicles will be used in the 23 towns that make up the region," said Frédéric Decompte, DPVA's Transport director.

   "We now have more than 270 coaches and buses, of which 60 are for the sole use of the region. With this order, more than 80 per cent of Dracénie’s fleet will be powered by natural gas," said Anthony Beltrame, the Group's CEO.

   Dracénie Provence Verdon constantly renews its fleet of buses with natural gas vehicles and adopts a tri-annual investment plan with the acquisition of two buses every year on three exercises.
