The initial 3 hydrogen buses will grace the streets of Krefeld, western Germany, by the close of 2024, followed by the remaining seven scheduled for delivery by May 2025.

Olivier Michard, Member of the Solaris Board responsible for Sales and Marketing, lauded SWK Mobil Krefeld’s forward-thinking decision, affirming Solaris’ position as a pioneer in advancing hydrogen-powered buses.

In a bid to optimize fleet management, SWK Mobil Krefeld will leverage eSConnect, Solaris’ proprietary tool providing comprehensive access to crucial data for assessing bus performance and planning operations.
