Volvo Sunsundegui for Windmill
Windmill Community Transport has taken delivery of a new Volvo B11R coach with Sunsundegui SC7 bodywork. The coach is equipped with an 11-litre diesel engine and the Volvo I-Shift gearbox. It is fitted with a rear wheelchair lift, a half flat saloon interior and 48 seats, which can be adjusted to a 36-seater format to allow for four wheelchair specific seats. The new vehicle also carries oxygen onboard to ensure every eventuality, in terms of customers care and safety, is planned for. The majority of the operator’s work is with private charters and holiday groups. Windmill Community Transport’s Graham Fox said, ‘We are a charity organisation and our passenger requirements are really quite specific. We’re obviously well aware of the superb quality and reliability we get with the Volvo chassis and Sunsundegui were absolutely brilliant meeting our body requirements. Together they are the perfect combination for us. We’d like to specifically thank Volvo Bus Coach Sales Manager (UK & Ireland), James Hyde and Alex Irizar from Sunsundegui for meeting our requirements when other manufacturers didn’t want to listen. Not only that, but the B11R is going to offer us overall weight savings and therefore reduce our fuel consumption, which for a charity organisation such as ourselves, is vitally important.’
