Solaris will provide 200 hydrogen buses in Europe and for 150 million | Companies

Solaris started the return of the summer holidays on the right foot, by achieving new orders for buses powered by hydrogen. On this occasion it will supply 200 units in Italian and German cities at a cost of 150 million. The award may be higher because the contracts contemplate a possible expansion of the orders.

The cars go around the transalpine cities of Bolina and Venice, and in the case of the German country via Cologne. Europe’s public transport sector is committed to sustainable mobility, with buses powered by batteries and hydrogen increasingly on the road. The CAF subsidiary has a decade long industrial history in the field of zero emissions and in the community area it has a market share of 60%. A few months ago it expanded its offer with a new articulated model measuring 18 meters in length. Its order book, between the recently delivered units and others in production, reaches 300 buses. Set for eight European countries.

Bologna contracted the 12-meter Urbino model. It integrates a 70 kW fuel cell that gets H2O from five composite tanks placed on the roof of the bus. It covers 350 square kilometers. Italy’s main university town will have these vehicles starting next year. Solaris will deliver the first batch of 34 units and the rest will arrive in Bologna in 2025 and 2026.

For its part, the operator AVM, which manages public transport in Venice, will receive 90 hydrogen-powered buses. With the option to receive 18 more if you extend your order. In the city of canals, 30 zero-emission units from the CAF subsidiary are already circulating.

And in Germany, the city of Cologne ordered 18 buses. The fourth most populous city in the German country has a fleet of 50 Solaris H2O units.
