Anyone know which engine manufacturer Solaris mostly or only use?
I ask because the Solaris buses I have ridden with around here (Oslo, Norway) vibrate and create a lot more noise than the usual MAN or Mercedes Benz equipped ones.

Well it s seems according to the press ,that Solaris has won a contract for Belgrade 180/400 new buses.Not offically confirmed yet.Brothers,i m so happy for Serbian Polish cooperation .But main remark is design hope that peoople in Solaris will get it right,Belgraders as south europeans ,and also other south nations, doesn not share the same taste for design with nort/east nations and it is natrual.Design for example Belgrade CAF trams has done by Giugaro studios,friendly advice is.. please open design office in Belgrade,Rome, or else on south of europe.This latest models on pic.above is not looking nice, i suggest Solaris model for Paris is very ok.

Solaris to deliver 200 buses to Belgrade

08.03.2013

Quote:
Today, representatives of Solaris Bus & Coach signed the contract for the delivery of 200 Urbino 18 articulated low-floor city buses to the municipal transport operator of Belgrade (GSP Belgrade / ГСПБеоград).

The order is the result of a competitive tender process won by Solaris, which called for the delivery of 180 buses with an option to increase the number by up to 15%. The operator exercised this possibility and the €64 million contract covers the delivery of 200 articulated city buses as well as the supply of spare parts during the two-year warranty period.

Production will take place this year. According to the agreement, the first buses will arrive in Belgrade by early July and the delivery of all 200 buses will be completed by the end of October 2013.

"We are delighted to have won this tender, especially as its large volume attracted offers from major competitors from across Europe. Solaris’s offer was the best. Although our brand is not yet well known in the Serbian market, we can ensure both the operator GSP and passengers in Belgrade that they will benefit from a product that meets highest European standards. This guarantees comfort and safety on the road" - said Małgorzata Olszewska, Member of the Solaris Management Board for Sales and Marketing.

The first Solaris buses in Serbia were supplied to the city of Novi Sad in 2011. This fleet of six Solaris Urbino 12 CNG city buses is fuelled by eco-friendly compressed natural gas.

The 200 articulated Urbino 18 for Belgrade will offer a low floor throughout the entire bus and will be fully air-conditioned. Their diesel engines will meet the Euro 5 emissions standard. For the safety of passengers, each bus will have a CCTV monitoring system with seven cameras.

More Solaris hybrid buses for Hannover

26.04.2013

Quote:
•42 Solaris Urbino Hybrid have recently been ordered by Hannover’s municipal operator üstra
•63 Solaris buses are already operated by üstra
•The contract envisages the delivery of the vehicles between 2013 and 2016
According to a contract signed with the city’s municipal operator üstra, Solaris will deliver twenty-six Urbino 12 Hybrid and sixteen Urbino 18 Hybrid buses to the city of Hannover. The delivery will be completed by 2016.

We are very satisfied with our cooperation with Solaris. Solaris is as a trusted and innovative business partner whose products are distinguished not only by their quality, but also their competitive price. We value the company’s flexibility, customer focus and its after-sales service", says André Neiß, üstra’s CEO.

"Solaris vehicles have significantly contributed to our fleet’s development over the past years. Their quality and reliability have been appreciated not only by passengers, but also drivers, mechanics and people responsible for the fleet maintenance. The contract for the delivery of 42 Solaris hybrid buses proves that the company is ready to adapt its state-of-the-art vehicles to customer’s needs and expectations", says Wilhelm Lindenberg, member of the üstra management board.

The contract envisages the delivery of the vehicles between 2013 and 2016. This year, nine Solaris Urbino 12 Hybrid and the same number of Urbino 18 Hybrid will start the supply.

Hannover’s municipal operator üstra already runs 63 buses from the factory in Bolechowo near Poznań, of which 11 are Solaris Urbino 18 Hybrid. The recent contract is another large order from the German market, where Solaris have already delivered almost 2000 vehicles.

"I am glad that our long-standing customer continues to trust in us and has ordered the next Solaris vehicles. üstra is a role model for the industry in terms of its innovation strategy and constant development in the field of sustainable public transport. This contract is also a confirmation of our buses’ outstanding performance", says Małgorzata Olszewska, Solaris’s member of the management board for Sales and Marketing.

Solaris was the first bus manufacturer to start mass production of hybrid buses in Europe in 2006. These eco-friendly vehicles, consuming up to 30 per cent less fuel than their diesel-engined counterparts are now operated in eight countries: Germany, Belgium, Finland, France, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Switzerland. Solaris is the only European manufacturer to have five different models of hybrid buses in its offer, adapted to different customers’ requirements.

Solaris hybrid bus in Plzeň

06.05.2013

Quote:
A new hybrid bus fully developed and manufactured in cooperation between Solaris and Škoda Electric started operating in the Western Bohemian city of Plzeň. Its advantage is the ability to use a battery drive which is environmentally friendly and has a significantly lower consumption than classical buses.

The new Solaris Urbino 12 Hybrid with electric drive from Škoda Electric is intended primarily for zero-emission areas in city centres. In Plzeň it is operated on a highly used line, where it can immediately show its potential.

"The electric bus is able to use a battery drive which does not emit any pollutants into the air and which moreover is silent. It thus constitutes an ideal means of transport for residential areas. Running on its battery and emission-free drive the bus can go as far as 10 km without the need of battery re-charging or the use of a diesel generator. This design is suitable especially for intensive traffic in cities with a high frequency of starting and braking at relatively slow speeds", says Karel Majer, director of the Trolleybuses division at Škoda Electric.

The ability to save fuel by tens of percents constitutes a significant advantage of the hybrid bus. This is primarily the result of the recovery of electric energy which is produced during the braking of the vehicle.

"The energy is conserved in energy accumulators – batteries and supercapacitors – and subsequently it is re-used during driving. In the course of development significant attention was paid to the strategy of minimizing fuel consumption in all operation modes", explains Jiří Flajtingr, head of the hybrid bus project.

In order to start regular operation the vehicle had to meet a whole range of legal homologation conditions including demanding test drives which partly took place outside the common road network, at the TÜV testing centre in Úhelnice near Mladá Boleslav. It was necessary to prove and verify a whole range of technical parameters and Czech and European legal standards.

Solaris and Škoda Electric started the project of developing a new 12-meter long low-floor hybrid bus in 2009. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of West Bohemia in Plzeň also took part in the development, participating in the development of the hybrid drive unit of the bus.

The Solaris bus with the hybrid drive unit from Skoda Electric is already the fifth hybrid bus model in the manufacturer’s offer. Solaris was the first bus manufacturer to start mass production of hybrid buses in Europe in 2006. Since then, over 200 of these eco-friendly vehicles have been ordered by customers in Germany, Belgium, Finland, France, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Switzerland.

The Solaris Urbino 18.75 debuts on German roads

09.05.2013

Quote:

•Solaris will deliver its 18.75-metre vehicles for the first time
•The contractalso includes the delivery of five Solaris Urbino 12
•Solaris Urbino 18.75 is the longest Solaris bus ever offered
According to a contract signed with the city’s municipal operator Hagener Straßenbahn AG in January 2013, Solaris will deliver five Solaris Urbino 18.75 to the German city of Hagen. The delivery will be completed by the end of this month.

The cooperation between Hagener Straßenbahn AG and Solaris started in 2011. So far, the operator has bought nine Solaris Urbino 12 buses, but this number will increase by the end of this month. According to the recent contract, Solaris will deliver five 18.75-metre buses, fulfilling its first order for vehicles of this type, and five Solaris Urbino 12 buses.

The Urbino 18.75, the longest Solaris bus ever offered, was presented during IAACommercial Vehicles exhibition in autumn 2012. The vehicle gives the possibility of installing an extra row of four seats, enhancing its passenger capacity.

Braunschweig exercises Solaris Tramino option

22.05.2013

Quote:
• In May 2013 Solaris signed a contract for the delivery of another three Tramino to Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG.
• The operator exercised an option for additional vehicles included in the first order from May 2012.
• Last year, Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG ordered 15 Solaris Tramino.
• The additional trams will be delivered by May 2015.

The contract signed with Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG in May 2012 was for the delivery of fifteen Solaris Tramino low floor trams. Additionally, the German operator held an option for another three Tramino, which was exercised this month. As a result, the total ordered by Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG now amounts to 18 trams.

All the Solaris Tramino for Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG will be uni-directional low-floor vehicles, consisting of four body sections at an overall length of just under 36 metres. Each vehicle section will have its own bogie for Braunschweig’s track gauge of 1,100 mm. Inside the Tramino, 201 passengers will be carried, 77 of them seated. Access is provided by six double-leaf doors.

Similarly to their previously ordered counterparts, the additional three trams will also be equipped with supercapacitators, where energy is stored. This solution allows to optimise the trams’ energy balance.

The first fifteen Solaris Tramino for Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG will be delivered between May and December 2014, while the three recently ordered will reach Braunschweig by the end of May 2015. The purchase of three additional trams was made possible thanks to subsidy by the Lower Saxony transport authorities.

Solaris CEO Solange Olszewska is delighted with this second order: "We are glad that Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG once again ordered our trams. In choosing the Solaris Tramino, the operator will not only benefit from state-of-the-art technology in new trams. The trams’ attractive design will enhance the cityscape and we are sure that passengers in Braunschweig will love the excellent comfort of the Tramino."

"Thanks to the order for another three trams, the percentage of low-floor vehicles in our fleet will amount to 85. It will enhance the comfort of travelling and the quality of our services. We are convinced that the money we invest in our fleet’s renewal are well spent", says Georg Hohmann, CEO of Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG.


Dirk Fischer, Tram Operations Manager of Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG adds: "The last twelve months of successful cooperation with Solaris convinced us that taking advantage of the option for three additional trams is the right choice. I am sure that our cooperation will remain as effective as it has been so far and Solaris trams will start operating in the middle of 2014."

The Solaris Tramino family was first presented in 2009. Today, 45 trams are in service in the Polish city of Poznań. The vehicle concept chosen by Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG, in which each body section rests on its own bogie, will also be used in five Tramino for German operator Jenaer Nahverkehr GmbH, which are set to be delivered in 2013. They will be the first Polish trams on the German market.

I guess the good thing about trolleybuses and hybrid buses is that two manufacturers can lay claim to them! These are actually Skoda trolleybuses with Solaris bodies. Skoda also uses IVECO bodies. In either case I think the completed vehicle always comes from the Skoda Electric factory in Plzen.

Does Solaris produce trolleybus technology on its own?

As well as Solaris Trollino trolleybuses with Skoda electric equipment. More important is who wins the tender. In Riga it was Skoda, so the vehicle is called Skoda 27Tr-Solaris Trollino. Solaris delivers also trolleybuses with Skoda to Lublin in Poland. That tender was won by Solaris and the vehicles are called Solaris Trollino 12.

And Solaris uses electric equipment from Skoda, Cegelec, Medcom and Vossloh Kiepe.

Yes, in most cases. But trolleybuses with Medcom or Vossloh Kiepe are set together at the Solaris factory.

No, it doesn't. Does Skoda produce its own bodies?

Dunno if they still do, but they definitely used to have a series of low-floor Skoda-bodied Skoda-equipped trolleybuses

Skoda ended the body production in 2004 when they closed the trolleybus-exclusive plant in Ostrov.

More Solaris Urbino on Austrian roads

Quote:
• 43 Solaris Urbino 12 will be delivered to ÖBB Postbus
• The contract will be completed by 2017
• This is the second order from the Austrian operator for Solaris buses
• Solaris has been present on the Austrian market since 2003

Solaris will deliver 43 Solaris Urbino 12 city buses to Austrian national bus operator ÖBB Postbus. The delivery will take place between 2013 and 2017 and is a part of the operator’s fleet renewal programme. In the next five years ÖBB Postbus is going to order up to 700 city and intercity buses, adapted to meet all passengers’ needs. Thanks to this investment project, the percentage of accessible vehicles in the fleet will rise to 87 per cent by 2017.

The cooperation between ÖBB Postbus and Solaris began in 2009 with the order of fourteen Urbino 10 midibuses. So far, Solaris vehicles are operated by over twenty Austrian operators in such diverse locations as Vienna, Salzburg and the Alpine resort of Mayrhofen.
