China Yuchai Wins Major Engine Order for Beijing Buses
China Yuchai International Limited’s main subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL), has successfully tendered to supply natural gas bus engines for public transportation in Beijing. The contract is for 587 units of National V engines, for buses operated by Beijing Bafangda Express Bus Services Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of the Beijing Public Transportation Group.
The breakdown of natural gas engines is 237 units of engine model YC6L260N-50, 108 units of model YC6MK320N-50 and 242 units of model YC6K1336N-50. This contract represents the first purchase of YC6K13N engines in the Chinese bus market and is GYMCL’s second award through a competitive bidding process by the Beijing Public Transportation Group for National V natural gas engines since 2012.
In March 2012, GYMCL began developing a portfolio of natural gas powered engines to complement its existing suite of diesel engines. In March 2013 the company was awarded the European Union’s E-mark for the YC6K 6 cylinder 12L series of engines.
Commenting on the new engines today Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, said, “Our advanced engines continue to be purchased in the most important public transportation market in China, the Beijing public transit market. As a leader in Chinese emission control technology, our engines have attained global emission standards. Superior emission technologies are an important purchasing consideration as China’s many municipalities seek to reduce pollution and improve air quality.”
