A MA­JOR Euro­pean women’s sports tour­na­ment used a pre­mium range of Trans­dev-op­er­ated Iveco coaches to trans­port play­ers across France in De­cem­ber.

Be­tween Novem­ber 29 – De­cem­ber 16, 2018, France hosted the 13th Euro­pean Women’s Handball Cham­pi­onship. Isi­lines by Trans­dev – the of­fi­cial op­er­a­tor of the Men’s French Handball Team in part­ner­ship with the French Handball Fed­er­a­tion – used 21 Magelys coaches to trans­port the teams.

This is the first time in its history that the Cham­pi­onship washeld in France, where handball teams from 16 na­tions com­peted.

Isi­lines ran the coaches within the five French cities cho­sen to host the com­pe­ti­tion: Mont­béliard, Nancy, Nantes, Brest and Paris.

By part­ner­ing with the Euro­pean Women’s Handball Cham­pi­onship, Iveco Bus once again con­firms its role as a ‘ref­er­ence part­ner’ for ma­jor sport­ing events on the na­tional and in­ter­na­tional scales, it says.

Syl­vain Blaise, Iveco vice pres­i­dent for the com­pany’s world­wide ac­tiv­i­ties, said: “This 13th edi­tion of Euro­pean Women’s Handball Cham­pi­onship in our coun­try [France] is an his­toric event, and we are proud to have once again been cho­sen as a ref­er­ence part­ner with our Magelys.

“Com­mit­ment, per­for­mance and team spirit: these are the val­ues that unite us, and we are proud to bring to­gether in­dus­trial and sport­ing ex­cel­lence!” he added.


The Magelys coach – voted In­ter­na­tional Coach of the Year 2016 – is the flag­ship of the Iveco bus range. De­signed and en­gi­neered to of­fer in­com­pa­ra­ble com­fort and safety, its el­e­gant de­sign and its over­head side pan­els pro­vide a panoramic view of the ex­te­rior and ex­cel­lent in­te­rior light­ing, says Iveco. A large wind­screen com­pletes the pack­age, for ex­cep­tional vis­i­bil­ity and safety for both the driver and the pas­sen­gers it adds.

Its Iveco Cur­sor 9 en­gine de­liv­ers 400hp (298kW) and uses se­lec­tive cat­alytic re­duc­tion (SCR) – with­out use of EGR – to con­trol pol­lu­tant emis­sions, for more sus­tain­abil­ity.

Magelys also boasts a ro­bust self-sup­port­ing struc­ture hard­ened in a ‘cat­aphoretic’ coat­ing to en­sure long-last­ing pro­tec­tion against cor­ro­sion, the com­pany states. It is de­signed to pass the R66/02 rollover test, an in­ter­na­tional reg­u­la­tion which en­sures pas­sen­gers re­ceive max­i­mum pro­tec­tion if the ve­hi­cle over­turns. It is also equipped with the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions such as the LDWS (Lane De­par­ture Warning Sys­tem) and AEBS (Ad­vanced Emer­gency Brak­ing Sys­tem) au­to­matic brak­ing.
