Irizar e-mobility says it is continuing to grow its presence in Frankfort, Germany. Irizar is set to provide nine 18-meter emission-free electric buses to In-de-City-Bus GmbH (ICB) in addition to nine interoperable slow charge stations for their garages.
After completing an order for 10 12-meter zero-emission buses in Dusseldorf, the company is focusing its electromobility services on other cities in Germany. Irizar offers its sales and after-sales services for electric buses and charging infrastructures in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets through Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions.
With 560 kWh of stored energy and a range of 220 to 250 km, the latest generation of Irizar buses are equipped with three doors, 46 seats and two spaces for wheelchairs or pushchairs. They charge overnight via nine interoperable chargers fitted with CCS Combo 2 adapters.
The first units are expected to be delivered by the end of 2020.
Irizar manufactures its own batteries and even provides them with a second life, allowing them to be reused once they have come to the end of their useful life cycle in buses, turning them into an energy storage device in electric vehicle recharging infrastructures in different service stations.
ICB is the largest bus company in Frankfurt. It has a fleet of 162 low-emission buses, transporting more than 31 million passengers each year.
