Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant Delivers Batch of Neman Tourist Buses for Passenger Transportation during the 2nd European Games
In early 2019, Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant JSC (MWTP) signed a contract for the delivery of Neman-420234-511 tourist buses to provide passenger transportation during the 2nd European Games. A total of 30 buses were delivered to state enterprise Minsktrans and regional bus depots.
The Neman-420234-511 is a new bus produced by Lida-based NEMAN vehicle assembly plant, a division of MWTP JSC.
The bus is fitted with 170-hp Euro-5 engine IVECO F1C, six-speed manual transmission ZF 6S 400 and an independent front suspension. The comfortable coach accommodates 28 ergonomic luxury seats with high backs and lateral support featuring a mechanism for moving to the centre, a three-point seat belt, a seatback pocket, a tray table and a folding footrest.
For a more comfortable trip, the buses are equipped with Wi-Fi, a DVD-system with two overhead monitors, and an air conditioning system. The service units in the luggage racks are equipped with USB connectors for charging mobile phones.
Glass units provide a high level of noise and heat insulation. Comfortable conditions have also been created for a driver – an air suspension seat with a headrest. The bus is also fitted with electric and heated side mirrors.
Neman buses use components from the world’s best manufacturers. The plant is constantly working on improving the models. Buses are made in the basic configuration, as well as to individual orders. A total of 120 buses were produced and sold in 2018.
