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.
