NFI Group Inc (NFI) announced that Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe had exercised options for 198 Enviro500 double-deck buses.

The buses are to be delivered to the German capital by the end of 2022.

Alexander Dennis Limited, an NFI subsidiary, will build these buses in its factories in the United Kingdom.

NFI delivered the first two Enviro500 double-deck buses to BVG in October 2020 as part of a multi-year framework contract signed in 2018.

Following the successful completion of a testing programme with this initial pair of vehicles, BVG’s supervisory board approved the conversion of options for another 198 buses into firm orders, taking the fleet to 200.

Options for an additional 230 Enviro500 double-deck buses remain in the contract.

“This is a testament to the incredible efforts of our ADL team. They can expand into new markets and deliver for customers in multiple jurisdictions through their ability to execute on highly complex product development projects,” said Paul Soubry, President & Chief Executive Officer, NFI.

“We are extremely proud to support a world-class operator in BVG and take a significant step in NFI’s global growth strategy,” added Soubry.

Production of all 198 units will occur at ADL’s facilities in the United Kingdom, with the Scarborough site in Yorkshire to lead the final assembly.

Once delivered, they will be supported locally by an experienced team operating out of ADL’s recently opened Berlin office, service workshop and parts warehouse.
