Solaris to supply 10 electric buses to Radom

Solaris has signed another contract for the supply of electric buses on the Polish market. The Municipal Road and Transport Authority in Radom ordered ten Urbino 12 electric buses from Solaris together with infrastructure for charging them. The contract worth PLN 26 million (US$6.7 million) will be completed by mid-June 2020.

The 116 kWh Solaris High Power batteries will power a 2 x 125 kW electric axle. The energy will be supplemented by a fast-charging pantograph system and as well as depot charging via a plug-in connection.

The comfortable vehicles will offer their passengers, among others, efficient air-conditioning and USB chargers for charging mobile devices during the ride. The drivers, who spend the most time on the bus, will have their own air conditioning. In turn, for cold winter days, an additional heating system powered by low-emission compressed natural gas (CNG) will be provided. Its tank will be located on the roof of the vehicle.

Solaris will provide not only the buses, but also the devices for recharging energy along with their installation, construction works and obtaining appropriate permits. Two pantograph charging points with a capacity of 300 kW each will be created in selected locations in the city. They will serve to quickly recharge the energy in bus without it having to return to the depot where the vehicles will be charged only at nights, using a total of 6 chargers (two 40 kW and four two-station 80 kW). Therefore, it will be possible to connect all 10 ordered electric buses simultaneously.

Deliveries as well as the assembly and installation works will end in mid-June 2020.

Since the launch of its first electric bus, Solaris has delivered or contracted more than 400 electrobuses from 17 countries (including 150 on the Polish market).
