Solaris receives first order for 20 fuel cell buses in Czech

Solaris has signed a deal with the Czech city of Ústí nad Labem to deliver up to 20 fuel cell buses of type Urbino 12. This is the first order for hydrogen buses that Solaris has received from the Czech Republic.

Solaris describes the Urbino 12 hydrogen as its most technologically-advanced vehicle. The Polish bus maker had unveiled the hydrogen version of its best-selling Urbino 12 model in Stockholm two years ago.

The bus comes with two electric motors with an output of 125 kW each, 70 kW fuel cell modules, a small battery and five hydrogen tanks made of composite material with a total capacity of 1,560 liters. Solaris specifies a range of at least 350 kilometers.

This is the first contract for hydrogen buses in the Czech Republic. However, it is not the first collaboration between the bus maker and the city of Ústí nad Labem. According to Solaris, 44 Solaris buses with different types of propulsion systems are already deployed in public transport in the City.

“Over the years, we have delivered over 1200 vehicles with different drives, i. e. diesel, CNG vehicles and trolleybuses, to the Czech Republic. The latest contract for the delivery of up to 20 hydrogen buses is absolutely groundbreaking,” .
