AutoMOST wins the ITS award for autonomous and connected vehicles

Aduna, 16 July 2021

AutoMOST has won the ITS Award for autonomous and connected vehicles by ITS España.

The first autonomous Irizar ie bus is the outcome of the AutoMOST project financed by the CDTI through the CIEN programme. Avanza participated in the project as an operator alongside 11 partners, which included the Irizar Group through Irizar e-mobility and Datik.

In February, the City of Malaga and Avanza put the first zero emissions high capacity Irizar brand autonomous bus into service. It is a 12-metre-long ie bus model 100% electric zero emissions bus. It is a pioneering project that involves putting a standard size vehicle on the road in real traffic situations in a city.

The project has two characteristics that make it a significant milestone, which are the capacity to transport passengers and interaction with vehicles, pedestrians and infrastructure in real traffic conditions.

The Polytechnic University of Madrid, Insia, CEIT-IK4 and the University of Vigo also participated. It's a pilot R&D project that started four years ago and finished this year, in 2021, within the projected deadline.

The prize was awarded this Thursday at the gala held at the IFEMA Convention Centre and it acknowledges AutoMOST as the most important project in the country in the field of autonomous and connected vehicles.

This is the second award the AutoMOST project has won. Last year it was awarded the Industrial Development Prize from the IEEE-ITSS (Intelligent Transportation Systems Society).

AutoMOST will be an implementation of shared control systems (dual mode) in future autonomous passenger transport vehicles that makes it possible to operate services in a more flexible and efficient way in a context of smart and connected infrastructures.

This project, which is a major challenge for the Irizar Group, is the first solid step towards the transport of the future, which will be sustainable, connected, safe and autonomous transport.

Berne and Liechtenstein are the next destinations for the zero emissions buses from Irizar e-mobility

Aduna, 8 July 2021

Irizar e-mobility together with its partner in Switzerland Jebsen & Jessen Industrial Solutions Schweiz AG, continues with the strategy of implementing its electromobility solutions in Europe and is appointed to supply a total of 18 buses with operators Bernmobil and BUS Ostschweiz. 

The Swiss operator Bernmobil (Berne) orders 14 ie bus zero-emissions buses in the 18 metre articulated version. These buses are planned to be used for lines 19 and 21 in the city of Berne in early 2023.

On the other hand, BUS Ostschweiz AG, who was recently appointed to operate lines for LIEmobil for the years to come, has put their trust in Irizar e-mobility to cover the electric service in Liechtenstein by putting four 12 metre 100% electric zero emissions ie bus model buses into operation.

The buses have lithium-ion batteries that have been developed and manufactured at the Irizar e-mobility facilities in Aduna (Gipuzkoa). The other components and systems have also been developed with technology belonging to the Irizar Group. It should also be noted that Irizar e-mobility gives a second life to batteries. They make it possible to reuse batteries after their useful life cycle in buses has ended by using them as storage elements in electric vehicle charging stations.

These Irizar buses - silent and environmentally friendly - are set to become a central part of sustainable mass transit, because they contribute considerably to reducing environmental impact and improving people's quality of life.

Without a doubt, both contracts are a step forward in the Irizar Group's positioning strategy to provide sustainable mobility solutions for the European market.

Zaragoza City Council and Avanza are committing to Irizar e-mobility electric buses to renew their fleet

Aduna, 18 June 2021

A total of 68 units, 51 of 12 metres and the remaining 17 articulated vehicles, will be purchased. These buses will be rolled out into service gradually, from the final semester of next year and will be operated by Avanza.

This is Irizar e-mobility’s largest electrical bus project to date. It is, without doubt, a pioneering benchmark project that will help to improve the quality of life of Zaragoza’s citizens and will eliminate many tonnes of CO2 emissions. 

Zaragoza City council today presented the new electric bus model which will form the basis of its fleet renewal from the end of next year.  The model is the Irizar e-mobility ie tram, a 100% electric bus with a futuristic design which, in addition to showcasing the change to zero emissions technology will bring a major change in the aesthetics of city buses in Zaragoza.  This vehicle will undergo testing throughout the city over the next 3 weeks and will operate on different lines with capacity to operate with double buses, such as on line 23.

The presentation was attended by the mayor of Zaragoza, Jorge Azcón; the Council Member for Public Services and Mobility, Natalia Chueca; and the general manager of Avanza, Valentín Alonso. It was also attended by the director of Avanza Zaragoza, Guillermo Ríos, and Txema Otero, Irizar e-mobility Sales Director for Spain and Portugal.

The Government of Zaragoza recently took the decision that all new urban buses added to the bus service in Zaragoza, were to be electric.  Zaragoza is therefore redoubling its commitment to becoming a climate-neutral city.  The city currently has 4 of these zero emissions buses plus 111 hybrid units. The rest, up to 352, are diesel.

Replacing each diesel bus with an electric bus will save 1,700 tonnes of CO2 emissions throughout its service life. It is calculated that, when the entire fleet is replaced by electric vehicles, Zaragoza will save more than 621,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

The transition towards an electric fleet is in line with the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, under the Next Generation EU package, which will be eligible for European funding and will put Zaragoza in a good position for access to grants in future bidding rounds.  It is in this specific sense that the choice of a European company to supply these buses is decisive in order to qualify for these European funds, with enhanced guarantees.  This was a major factor in Zaragoza City Council’s decision to go for Irizar’s ie tram.

Irizar e-mobility is proud to be able to contribute to the City of Zaragoza’s decarbonisation objectives and to work in partnership with Avanza, which is taking a further step in its firm commitment to sustainable mobility and to leading the transition towards zero emissions to improve urban environments.

The Irizar ie truck enters the European market

Aduna, 11 June 2021

A new Irizar electric truck for Switzerland will be added to the mass production of the 10 units announced last week.

Irizar e-mobility will produce a new electric truck that will be added to the mass production announced last week. This vehicle, fruit of the agreement reached with Jebsen & Jessen Industrial Solutions, will be the first to be launched in Europe, specifically in Switzerland.

It is a 100% electric truck with a 6x2 three axle chassis configuration. It will be equipped with Irizar ion-lithium batteries with 340 kWh capacity. It will be charged by means of a Combo 2 charging point in 3.5 hours using a Jema Energy (Irizar Group company) model charger, also supplied by Irizar e-mobility. And the truck will have load capacity of up to 27 tons. It is a vehicle that may be used in unlimited applications, for either waste collection and urban distribution.

The energy efficiency, safety, accessibility, versatility, and environmental benefits are some of the most significant attributes defining this vehicle.

The Irizar ie truck is 100% electric, silent and environmentally friendly truck, developed jointly with FCC Medio Ambiente, a company that has been providing urban services for more than 110 years. It responds to the different market needs and allows circulating in cities and urban environments without generating atmospheric or acoustic contamination which means cleaner cities and more sustainable environments for all citizens.

Equipped with technology developed by Irizar Group, the ie truck, has an electronic stability program (ESP), adaptive levelling suspension and advanced emergency braking system (AEBS) for optimal operational safety. Also there is an integrated camera and frontal radar sensor for the lane departure warning system (LDWS).

Its low height cab is accessible via a single 370 mm step, which provides safe transit for drivers and passengers. We have designed a pneumatic inward swinging door, which enables worker access regardless of any obstacles in the streets. This door integrates anti-trapping sensors, a photocell and sensitive edge on the door, to avoid any type of unforeseen circumstance in the most accelerated applications. The cabin has passenger seats that can be folded, so they can be put away to clear the aisle from obstacles.

The ie truck has unsurpassed direct vision due to the low position of the seat and wide front, side, and door windows. Furthermore, instead of rear-view mirrors, they are fitted with two digital cameras that project images onto screens in the driving position, for optimal driver visibility. 

Undoubtedly Irizar ie truck is more evidence of the Irizar Group capacity for adapting to market needs providing new alternatives to cities with low emission areas, which contributes to the sustainability and to create more habitable cities.

It is worth remembering that Irizar e-mobility it offers its sales and after-sales services for electric buses and charging infrastructures in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets through Jebsen & Jessen Industrial Solutions.

The vehicles are equipped with driving assistance systems, ensuring safer and more efficient driving. Furthermore, instead of rear-view mirrors, they are fitted with two digital cameras that project images onto screens in the driving area, for optimal driver visibility.  For entertainment purposes, each vehicle has USB ports on the handrails for phone charging and Wi-Fi for passengers.

Barcelona City Council has ambitious sustainability targets.  At Irizar e-mobility we are proud to be able to contribute to these targets. With environmentally-friendly vehicles, decarbonisation and the quality of life of the residents of Barcelona will improve.

This new order is yet another display of Irizar e-mobility’s ability to adapt solutions to the specific needs of each operator and to provide turnkey solutions for sustainable, efficient, smart, affordable, safe and connected public transport.

FCC Medio Ambiente and Irizar agree to produce the first 10 Irizar ie urban electric trucks

Aduna, 3 June 2021

FCC Medio Ambiente and Irizar agree to start mass production of the first 10 Irizar ie urban electric trucks to be used for collection of residues. The excellent results of the tests conducted in different European cities and the satisfaction of the operators have resulted in this decision.

Mass production of these 10 units includes 4x2 and 6x2 of two and three-axle versions and is the definite impulse to contribute to the implantation of feasible e-mobility of urban service vehicles in metropolitan areas, with an enormous environmentally positive impact regarding contaminating emissions and noise, reduction of the carbon footprint and energy efficiency.

This success is a true reflection of the collaboration over the last years between FCC Medio Ambiente an Irizar, where for FCC it is a consequence of its commitment to innovation and for improving the environment in cities where it offers it services, and for which Irizar has shown to be the best technology partner.

The Irizar ie urban truck is 100% electric, zero emissions responding to the different market needs and allowing to circulate in cities and urban areas with a drastic reduction of noise, emissions, contamination, and CO2, and 50% less energy consumption than a conventional vehicle, which makes it ideal to perform work early in the morning or at night as well as having access to low emission areas of cities.

It incorporates in-house technology developed by the Irizar Group companies regarding electrical traction, energy storage, and control electronics, combined with more than 100 years’ experience of FCC Medio Ambiente regarding the real needs of municipal services.

The design, functionality, and accessibility are some of the attributes that make it unique on the market, a vehicle with cutting edge aesthetics, attractive, and accessible.

Access to the cabin is by a single accessible 370 mm stairway, which makes it the vehicle with lowest access height on the current market, and in turn ensures safe transport for the driver and any companions. 

Comfort, safety, optimal field of vision and the ergonomic reach to all controls and dashboard screen have been essential for developing the position of the driver. 

It is worth remembering that the ie urban truck was presented in the Sustainable Urban Mobility Congress SUM in Bilbao in 2019 and the first prototype was used for residue collection fruit of the collaboration with FCC Medio Ambiente.  It was the winner of the World Smart City Awards in the Innovative Idea category, in the Smart City Expo World Congress 2019. It obtained the award in 2019-2020 of the European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE) in the Product and/or Service category for project Development of High Efficiency, Modular and Self-supporting Electric Traction Vehicular Platforms for Urban Services”. And this year it has been awarded with the Ecological Industrial Vehicle of the Year 2021 in Spain, an award granted by the Editec Group.

We have no doubt at all, that several public administrations are going to commit to more sustainable transport solutions and FCC Medio Ambiente and Irizar are perfectly prepared to make that possible right now.
