Voith Turbo Inc. has announced it is supplying 60 of its DIWA.5 automatic transmissions to heavy-duty bus manufacturer Gillig LLC. The transmissions will be used in clean diesel buses bound for the Port Authority of Allegheny County (PAT) transit system in Pittsburgh.
‘Pittsburgh is already benefiting from DIWA technology, as at least 325 PAT buses currently utilize a DIWA transmission,’ says Joe Dalik, regional sales manager for Voith Turbo.
‘With this new order for Gillig buses, Pittsburgh will further supplement their fleet with fuel-efficient technology that will last for years. DIWA transmissions were developed specifically for transit bus applications, and they have proven themselves as a long-wearing, fuel-efficient option for the market.’
Final delivery of the clean diesel buses to Pittsburgh is scheduled by year-end.
