The Romanian city of Ploiești has opted for 20 low-floor Solaris Trollino 12 trolleybuses worth PLN 36 million. The vehicles will be delivered within two years from the signing date.
The trolleybus network launched in Ploiești in 1997 and is the newest of all networks in Romania. New Solaris vehicles will also make it possible for the city to expand existing traction lines and its transport network.
Petros Spinaris, deputy CEO of Solaris said “I am extremely happy that further Solaris trolleybuses will operate on Romanian roads and that I can welcome the city of Ploiești to the list of almost 750 towns and cities where our vehicles are in use. Over the last three years we have delivered solely low- or zero-emission vehicles to the Romanian market. The order placed by the city of Ploiești represents a continuation of this resident and environmentally friendly trend”, said
12-metre Trollino 12 trolleybuses commissioned by the city will be propelled by a 160 kW electric motor. The 35 seat Trolleybuses are entirely low-floor and offer the kneeling function enabling the right side of the trolleybus to lower at a stop.
Solaris, who are owned by CAF, will include air conditioning, passenger information systems, a set of video surveillance system cameras and routers ensuring access to wireless Internet will also be included. A passenger counting system will be mounted above the doors.
The buses included in the new order will be the first Solaris trolleybuses to go to Ploiești, but not the first ones in Romania. Solaris who are the trolleybus market leader in the European Union and has already delivered almost 100 trolleybuses to the Romanian municipalities of Baia Mare, Galați and Cluj-Napoca.
Currently the Polish manufacturer is completing the delivery of 26 articulated trolleybuses to Brașov, and it has recently signed a contract for the delivery of 16 Urbino 18 electric buses to the city of Craiova. In total, the company has supplied over 300 buses and trolleybuses to Romanian carriers.
