Volvo Trucks Singapore kicked off the local edition of its global initiative, Volvo Trucks Fuelwatch Competition, for the second time this year on 23rd August 2014. The competition challenged over 32 drivers to achieve the highest fuel savings through optimised driving techniques.
Fuelwatch Competition Local Winners
The winners of the FH/FM and FMX categories were Mr Eros Neo Jit Hong and Mr Christopher Wu Ming Pu, who achieved an average of 30% more fuel savings than their defeated contenders. They were amongst the 20 finalists who had qualified through a theory test. The finalists then drove the trucks along a 13km route to prove themselves as the most fuel-efficient Volvo truck driver in Singapore.
Neo and Wu will represent Singapore and participate in the APAC and Global Fuelwatch competitions to be held in Goteborg, Sweden, headquarters of Volvo Trucks, in September 2014.
