Comeca’s Involved in the 1st French Project Retrofitting Buses to Electric

The energy transition is a major challenge for our society, and more and more initiatives are emerging to reduce our impact on the environment. In this context, the Rouen Normandie metropolis has embarked on an ambitious project: retrofitting 49 Crossway gas buses into electric buses for school use.

To carry out this project, they have teamed up with some excellent partners, including Comeca, a specialist in ultra-fast charging and supplier of charging stations for the metropolis. In this article, we’ll explore the details of this groundbreaking order in France and the technological advances that make it possible.

Comeca is a major player in mobility and was selected for its technological advancements in ultra-fast charging. Previously involved in projects to purchase new electric vehicles, Comeca is now participating in a project to convert gasoline vehicles to electric. This process, known as retrofitting, is an ecologically and financially attractive alternative for major French cities and beyond.

The Rouen Normandie metropolis has chosen to retrofit part of its existing bus fleet instead of buying new vehicles, reflecting its commitment to sustainable development.

Comeca, already a supplier of charging stations for the metropolis, is proud to participate in this French project alongside Greenmot, Forsee Power, and SPL. With its design and production of recharge solutions in France, Comeca is a true local partner. This two-year project will be the first successful example of French collaboration in the field of retrofitting and energy transition.

Comeca is very pleased to renew its collaboration initiated in 2022 and to participate in this new project, which shows the Rouen Normandie metropolis’ commitment to sustainable development and energy transition.
