Public transport operator Gmina Miejska has signed a contract with Solaris Bus & Coach for the delivery of 5 Urbino 12 electric buses in Glogow along with the requisite charging infrastructure.

These electric buses in Glogow will be the first zero-emission investment by the Polish town located in Lower Silesian.

The signing ceremony took place with the participation of Glogow Mayor Rafael Rokaszewicz.

In line with the contract signed, the first electric buses in Glohow are expected to be delivered by Solaris by the second half of 2024.

“The purchase of further electric buses by the Gmina Miejska Glogow not only has a social and economic dimension but will also bring many environmental benefits. It is important that the buses in Glogow are zero-emission and do not pollute our environment. Solaris is a leader in the European market of electric buses, so we are looking forward to this cooperation immensely,” said Rafael Rokaszewicz, Mayor of Glogow.

“We are very much looking forward to the next chapter of our long-term collaboration and would like to congratulate Glogow on this impressive investment in zero-emission buses, which will make public transport more sustainable and resident-friendly,” said Waldemar Wlazło, for the Western and Southern Region in Poland at Solaris Bus & Coach sp. z o.o.

The Solaris Urbino 12 Electric Buses will comprise a 220 kW engine powered by energy provided by Solaris High Energy batteries.

The batteries, with a capacity of 280 kWh, will be charged via a plug-in connector using an inverted pantograph, i.e., one lowered from the charging mast onto the bus roof.

Thanks to these flexible charging solutions, the electric buses in Glogow will operate all day long providing a reliable and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional transport means.

Along with the Urbino 12 Electric Buses, Solaris will also set up the requisite charging infrastructure for Glogow.

One fast-charging station will be built on Towarowa Street, while plug-in chargers will be located at the bus depot on Transportowa Street.

The charging stations will become key elements of the town’s infrastructure, allowing for fast and efficient bus charging.

Solaris’ partnership with Glogow started back in 2006, and over the years, a total of over 20 Solaris vehicles, including 4 hybrid buses have joined the town’s fleet.
