Solaris Expands to New Markets in Spain and Bulgaria

Bus builder Solaris Bus & Coach continues its expansion with the first buses for two new markets. For the first time, Solaris buses will be operated in Spain and Bulgaria. This takes the number of countries with Solaris vehicles to 22.

Spain: Alpino 8.6 Midibus for Girona

Girona-based Transports Municipals del Girončs S.A. has become the first bus operator in Spain to choose Solaris buses. The Catalan operator has ordered an Alpino 8.6 low-floor midibus, which is expected to be delivered this autumn.

Solange CEO Solange Olszewska comments: "This first order from Spain may only be for one vehicle, but it is an important step for Solaris on the Spanish market, which has a long tradition of local body builders working on various chassis. We are convinced that Solaris’s integral solutions will appeal to Spanish customers and we are looking forward to working with further operators."

Solaris last year established Solaris Bus Ibérica S.A. in Madrid for its activities on the Iberian peninsula. Solaris is currently present in Portugal with a Trollino 12 running on the Coimbra trolleybus network.

Bulgaria: Trolleybuses for Capital Sofia

Over the coming months, the trolleybus fleet in the Bulgarian capital Sofia will benefit from the investment in 30 new trolleybuses. These quiet and eco-friendly trolleybuses will be supplied by Škoda Electric and Solaris Bus & Coach to Sofia Electrotransport EAD. They will be the first trolleybuses in Sofia to offer low-floor easy access throughout the vehicle, setting new standards in passenger comfort.

These vehicles will be supplied by Solaris’s Czech partner Škoda Electric, who will contribute the electric traction systems. Sofia’s 12-metre trolleybuses will be fitted with auxiliary diesel generators in order to be able to work away from overhead power supplies in case of service disruptions. Delivery will be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2011.

These trolleybuses will be the first Solaris vehicles for Bulgaria. They demonstrate Solaris’s position as a leading supplier of e-mobility solutions. Since its launch nine years ago, more than 400 Solaris Trollino trolleybuses have been built for customers in 14 countries throughout Europe.

First Solaris Trolleybuses in Germany now in Service

Solaris has for the first time sold Trollino trolleybuses to a German customer. Barnimer Busgesellschaft of Eberswalde is taking delivery of twelve articulated Solaris Trollino 18. Their electric equipment is supplied by Cegelec and includes an energy storage system with supercapacitors.

In an official ceremony on Eberswalde Market Square, Barnimer Busgesellschaft took delivery of two of twelve Solaris Trollino 18 on order. These are the first Solaris trolleybuses for a German customer. By 2012, the entire fleet of Germany’s oldest trolleybus network will be replaced with new articulated Solaris Trollino.

With the Solaris Trollino, Barnimer Busgesellschaft has chosen one of Europe’s most advanced trolleybuses. The Trollino is based on the proven Solaris Urbino low-floor city bus. Solaris’s partner for the supply of the electric traction equipment is Czech Republic-based Cegelec a.s., a subsidiary of the French Cegelec Group.

A 250 kW electric motor powers the second axle of the bus, an arrangement desgined to deliver best performance even in adverse weather conditions. The traction converter and static solid inverter are placed in a container on the vehicle’s roof, minimising loss of passenger saloon space.

Also located on the roof are supercapacitors which store energy recuperated during braking. This energy is then used to power subsequent acceleration, reducing energy consumption of the new Solaris trolleybuses.

With fully charged supercapacitors, the vehicles can travel for up to 400m in all-electric mode without overhead power supply. Longer distances away from the fixed network are made possible by a 100 kW diesel generator that supplies enough power to operate a fully-laden vehicle in typical traffic flows.

The first three new Solaris Trollino are delivered to Barnimer Busgesellschaft this year. The follwing six will arrive next year, which the final three entering service in Eberswalde by 2012.

Eberswalde this year celebrated 70 years of continuous, eco-friendly trolleybus operation. Large parts of the city are served by two services with a combined route length of 37.2 km. There are plans to extend routes to housing estates not on the existing overhead wire network. Thanks to their state-of-the-art energy storage system and automatically-operated trolley poles, the new Solaris Trollino are fully suited to this new operation.

New Production Facility for Solaris Tramino Opened

Production of the Solaris Tramino has started with the official opening of a new, dedicated production hall for bodyshell work. The first Tramino order is for 40 low-trams for Poznań City Transport. Solaris has created a total of more than 320 new jobs on the new production lines.

On 26 November 2010, Solaris opened its new, dedicated facility for the production of tram bodyshells in a ceremony attended by representatives of politics, business and the media. First to be built at the new site in Środa Wielkopolska are the bodyshells for the Solaris Tramino ordered by Poznań City Transport.

Solaris will deliver 40 Solaris Tramino low-floor trams to Poznań by spring 2012, in time for the 2012 European Football Championship finals, in which Poznań is a host city. These articulated, five-section trams will be 32 metres long and will carry up to 229 passengers in a 100% low-floor passenger saloon.

120 staff work in two shifts at the new production facility. Weekly production output will be the bodyshells for one Solaris Tramino. Care is taken to ensure that all production materials are of highest quality, while the new factory has been equipped only with latest production machinery. These include state-of-the-art laser cutting and welding tools supplied by world market leader TRUMPF, some of which are used for the first time in Poland.

The production of Tramino bodyshells is managed by a team of experts with long-standing experience in rail vehicle manufacturing. Under their supervision, more than 200 trams have previously been built for Polish and international customers.

The new Solaris production facility has been certified by TÜV SÜD according to ISO 3834-2:2007 and PN-EN 15085 standards. The ISO 3834-2:2007 standard characterises high quality of welding, while PN-EN 15085 has been awarded in its highest class CL1, showing that Solaris offers top-level quality in rail vehicle manufacturing.

Overall, Solaris Tramino production will be split between two locations. After completion of the bodyshells in Środa Wielkopolska, final assembly takes place in another new facility in Poznań, where work will start at the beginning of December 2010. Altogether, Solaris has created more than 320 new jobs in the Poznań region for its tram production.

- Before starting serial production, the Solaris Tramino prototype successfully completed a year of demanding tests. We are positive that the vehicles for Poznań which are now under construction will meet highest expectations in quality and functionality as well as in comfort for passengers and drivers alike. In just a few months’ time, one of Europe’s most advanced trams will enhance the Poznań fleet - said Solaris founder Krzysztof Olszewski during the official opening of the new production facility.

Do you compare Caio Millenium with Solaris?

Solaris is a showcase of the beauty that is Polish design.

Dingy-looking; couldn't read well in any of them, I'd imagine. Plus, there's also something about the look of this model that screams I-hail-from-the-1920s!!!! (it reminds me of our 1920s school coach).

Funny thing is green and yellow aren't colours of Poznań. Just colours of urban transport.

Ok, but the buses here in Hannover look way better then the trams in Poznan. At least, in my opinion...

You are right, didn't know and was too lazy to check. Anyway, still don't understand why everything has to be in the colours of urban transport, city arms, etc..

It is called Corporate Design. Most local urban transport companies are owned by the city, therefore often use the city colours. Private transport companies like Veolia use their corporate colours on their trains and busses .

Do you have Solaris buses too, or just troleys?
