25 November 2022

Irizar e-mobility keeps winning new clients in northern Europe. The Spanish manufacturer just signed a contract with the Polish operator MPK Krakow (Miejskie Przedsiebiorstwo Komunikacyjne) to supply 4 electric buses. The contract has an option to provide three more buses. The order will make Krakow the first Polish city to have Irizar e-mobility electric buses in their fleet.

The model chosen by the operator is the 12 metre long Irizar ie bus and is equipped with in-house Irizar battery technology. They can be charged using a bottom-up pantograph or with a Combo 2 charging outlet in the garage. The chargers will be supplied by Jema Energy, an Irizar Group company. The buses have three doors, one driver's seat, 26 passenger seats and capacity for transporting 91 passengers. PRM solutions and wheelchair areas facilitate accessibility and fluid movement inside. Insofar as safety systems, the buses have complete CCTV systems, people counters and blind-spot cameras.

“We're very happy that next year passengers in Krakow will be travelling in new Irizar e-mobility electric buses. This will be the first electro-mobility project in Poland for this company”, says Marek Gancarczyk, MPK Krakow Spokesperson. “It's the first time we're implementing our sustainable mobility solutions in a Polish city and it fills us with pride and satisfaction. This contract is a step forward for the Irizar Group's positioning strategy for providing sustainable mobility solutions in the European market”, notes Mikel Irizar, Commercial Manager for Eastern Europe at Irizar e-mobility.
