宇通ZK6128HNGE Yutong ZK6128HNGE

天然氣巴士在澳門不算是一件新鮮事,早於二零一三年澳巴車隊便出現了來自深圳的五洲龍天然氣巴士,服務乘客。而在澳巴二零一五年接收的新車中,再次引進了以天然氣作動力來源的新車,較早年不同的是供應商來自宇通,而且在長度方面亦有所增加,長十二米的ZK6128HNGE。

宇通早於二零一四年成功打入澳巴車隊,當中除了是因為跟新時代同屬姊妹公司,在採購新車取向上跟隨新時代外,另一原因是有指五洲龍無法再滿足澳巴需要,提供傳統柴油作動力的新車。二零一五年,當兩間公司按各自需要向宇通發出購車合約,都是選擇十二米長的新車,然而澳巴選取了是天然氣作動力的ZK6128HNGE。對比早年引進的五洲龍FDG6101CNG天然氣巴士,也許澳巴當時累積了經驗,以及相應準備功夫充足下,全數二十架宇通新車自二零一五年十一月至二零一六年一月已經全數歸隊,並趕及往返石排灣與外港碼頭之間的新線56開辦前領牌,於該線四月尾投入服務時,成為該線主力。

同樣,跟當日引進五洲龍天然氣巴士一樣,澳巴同樣計劃在往返氹仔的主幹路線22上使用這批天然氣巴士,尤其這批宇通天然氣巴士載客量跟柴油版本一樣,合共運載八十四名乘客(二十六個座位加五十八個企位),可以有效疏導這條路線龐大的客量,只可惜即使22線解決了沿途障礙物對車頂氣缸構成的潛在危險外,由於巴士滿載後總重量超過十八噸,當局嚴禁這批巴士使用澳氹大橋,最終這批巴士只能夠行走56外,便取代部份行走於MT3的五洲龍FDG6101CNG,以及同樣由外港碼頭出發的12線的五洲龍FDG6951G,以提高該線的運載能力。

After successfully introduced a batch of CNG-powered Wuzhoulong FDG6101CNG in 2013, TCM acquired another batch of CNG-powered bus from Yutong in 2015.

As the trend adapted by sister company New Era, Yutong become the first choice when TCM purchasing new buses and the first batch of Yutong joined TCM in 2014 with 26 ZK6118HGE and 5 ZK6128HGE ordered. When further new bus order made in 2015, both company choosing 12m Yutong full-sized single decker and TCM acquired a batch of 20 ZK6128HNGE CNG-powered buses. Benefited from the lesson learnt during the introduction of Wuzhoulong CNG-powered buses, all ZK6128HNGEs can be delivered between Nov., 2015 and Jan., 2016 and first serving on new route 56 (running between Seac Pai Van and Jetfoil) since 30 Apr., 2016.

TCM proposed introduced the Yutong ZK6128HNGE on the Taipa trunk service 22 since they can accommodate 84 passengers (26 seats with 58 standees) as the diesel powered version ZK6128HGE. However, the gross vehicle weight of the CNG-powered Yutong already exceeds 18 tones and prevented them from passing through the Macau-Taipa bridge and hence TCM can deployed this batch of buses on route 12, 56 and MT3 only.
