Solaris has signed a contract for the supply low emission buses to bus operator Vy Buss AB. This Swedish carrier has decided to buy 40 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)-fuelled vehicles: 24 Solaris Urbino 12 CNG and 16 articulated Solaris Urbino 18 CNG. These buses will take up operations in Gävle, the capital of Gävleborg County.
This Swedish town, located at the Gulf of Bothnia, is where the gas-fuelled buses will be delivered in the middle of 2020.
“We are glad we were able to start working with the Solaris, a firm which meets expertly the requirements of X-trafik and Vy Buss AB. We receive both vehicles and ready solutions, such as for instance ten-year technical support. This means that – thanks to the cooperation with Solaris – we guarantee the best terms to ensure the satisfaction of our customers and to increase the share of public transport in our cooperation with Gävle”, said Andreas Ehrenborg, Technical Director at Vy Buss AB.
The CNG buses meet the rigorous European emission norm Euro 6. The Solaris Urbino 12 CNG buses will offer 31 seats, whereas the 18-metre buses will hold 45 seats (including four folding ones).
