Comfortable, Eco-Friendly, Convincing: Belgium Drives with DIWA.6 Transmission from Voith
"MIVB has decided in favor of our DIWA.6 transmission, because it not only complies with environmental aspects, but also meets all aspects of comfort," stated Frans de Béthune, Commercial Vehicles Manager Belgium and Luxemburg at Voith Turbo. "Particularly smooth acceleration due to our intelligent start-up management and the reduction of gearshift jolts thanks to the DIWA principle have won over the customer." The vehicles will be delivered between June and December this year and operate on the country's public transport routes.
MIVB has been relying on Voith transmissions for many years. Nearly 400 buses of the fleet drive with DIWA transmissions today. Some of them have been successfully in service for almost 20 years in the demanding start-stop traffic of Brussels's city center. The number of passengers in the Belgium capital has risen by more than 80% during the last ten years - another argument for putting more efficient buses on the road.
Voith sets standards in the markets energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transport & automotive. Founded in 1867, Voith employs more than 43,000 people, generates € 5.7 billion in sales, operates in about 50 countries around the world and is today one of the biggest family-owned companies in Europe.
