Eminox earns first CVRAS accreditation for UK’s best-selling coach

Lincolnshire-based retrofit company Eminox is the first to earn Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS) approval for the UK’s best-selling coach, the Volvo B9R.

The announcement was made just months before the London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into force on April 8 2019.

The company will work with Hampshire-based luxury coach hire business, Lucketts Travel, among others, to retrofit its coaches to ensure it meets Euro VI standards across its fleet.

Eminox Retrofit sales director Carlos Vicente said: ‘Eminox was the first company to gain CVRAS accreditation on buses and refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) and we’ve now achieved another first on coaches with the Volvo B9R.

‘Time is running out to equip coach and bus fleets for the London ULEZ and the growing number of Clean Air Zones (CAZ). We invite operators to talk to us about their needs and how we can use our experience and expertise to help them achieve Euro VI standards ahead of the deadline.’

Eminox has also launched its new Clean Air Zone Retrofit Development Centre. Their team is working closely with industry partners to achieve further CVRAS accreditations for a wide range of vehicles ahead of the London ULEZ and other emissions zones.
