MZK in Konin will be the first public transport operator in Poland to add a hydrogen bus to its fleet. Secured by Solaris Bus & Coach, the contract stipulates the four-year lease of a Urbino 12 hydrogen bus. The vehicle will be delivered to Konin in 2022.
The main advantages of a hydrogen bus include the short refilling time, the wide driving range as well as the zero-emission, noise-free and city resident-friendly operation of the vehicle. The hydrogen will be stored in gaseous form, in roof-stacked tanks. The commissioned bus will also feature a Solaris High Power battery.
Cities in Austria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden have commissioned more than 80 Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen buses in total so far.
