Voith receives a four-year service contract for automatic transmissions
- Voith won the tender for a four-year service contract for automatic transmissions of the municipal bus fleet in Lorient, France.
- Apart from repairing and replacing its own DIWA.5 automatic transmissions, Voith will also supply replacement gearboxes from other manufacturers.
- The short delivery time for replacement and repair gearboxes was a decisive factor when placing the order.
With 58,000 inhabitants, Lorient is the largest city in the French department of Morbihan in Brittany. RATP Dev, a subsidiary of the Paris public transport company RATP, manages the urban transport network on behalf of CTRL. This network covers 25 cities with a population of around 200,000 in total. The bus fleet comprises about 100 vehicles from various manufacturers. Around half of the vehicles are currently equipped with DIWA automatic transmissions from Voith.
