This Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) handover is to facilitate the daily shuttling of the growing number of students for both educational facilities.
FELDA signed the Inclusive Maintenance contract for five years to take advantage of Scania’s proactive maintenance procedures and avoid time-consuming and costly problems from occurring. Uptime is maximised while FELDA’s operating costs are reduced.
This contract also gives predictable costs, so FELDA can focus on getting the students to and from their asrama, worry-free. By individually optimising the different modules in its service plan, Scania ensures via the Inclusive Maintenance contract that downtime is planned and reduced to a minimum.
These two coaches also come with Scania’s Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) as part of the Safe and Smart Transport Technology platform that offers safety features such as the Anti-Lock Braking (ABS), the Electronic Braking System (EBS). Other features include the retarder and traction control, hill hold, and three fire alarm sensors.
These Scania coaches are FAME-prepared and ready to run on B20 up to B100 bio diesel. It is environmental-friendly, lowering global emissions by reducing CO2 to limit the effects of climate change. FAME is the abbreviation for Fatty Acid Methyl Esters that is the technical term for the biodiesel produced in Malaysia.
