Solaris has been awarded an order by ZTM Lublin to supply the city’s first hydrogen bus. The Urbino 12 hydrogen bus is a vehicle featuring state-of-the-art solutions based on hydrogen technology. In line with the agreement, the order will be completed by September next year. The operator providing public transport services using the hydrogen bus will be Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacyjne Lublin. The bus which has been ordered will be fitted with an electric power storage facility, i. e. a battery that, in addition to being charged by the hydrogen fuel cell, can also be charged by means of an external mobile charger, which is part of the contract and included in the bus’s equipment. The hydrogen bus destined for Lublin will be able to carry 85 passengers, 29 of whom can be seated. The bus will boast a variety of solutions to enhance the comfort of passengers and the driver’s work. They will include, among other features, a passenger counting system, a video surveillance system, air conditioning, a ticket vending machine with a cashless payment capability, an air disinfection system for the vehicle interior and USB charging ports for passengers. The partnership between Solaris and Lublin dates back to 1996. Over the years, the bus maker has delivered almost 200 vehicles to the city, including with diesel drives, as well as with electric drives: both e-buses and trolleybuses. Along with the delivery of the Urbino 12 hydrogen bus, the urban transport system in Lublin will have access to a wide range of cutting-edge solutions in public transport.
