Siemens offers public utilities, operators and municipalities a highly efficient complete solution that has been specially developed for inner-city line service using electric buses.
Climate and environment-friendly urban mass transit is a vital component for improving the quality of air in cities and thus the quality of life for the inhabitants. In this respect, municipal bus services are increasingly becoming the object of attention in particular because the buses currently in use around the world are almost always powered by internal combustion engines. In order to lower the harmful emissions associated with them, urban transit operators are turning to alternative propulsion systems for buses. And this is where electromobility plays an important role.
Siemens offers public utilities, operators and municipalities a highly efficient complete solution that has been specially developed for inner-city line service using electric buses. It includes the drive motors and power converters for the vehicles, as well as the necessary external charging stations, and is based on the years of experience acquired by Siemens in the design of contact lines and power supply systems. The fully automatic charging system is designed not only for electric bus (eBus) and electric bus rapid transit (eBRT) systems, but also for plug-in hybrid vehicles. It uses the communication standard for electromobility and can be operated as an open system for charging the various types of buses. It is supplied as a turnkey charging system that includes everything from the required electrical and structural engineering services to the integration in the existing power supply grids.
