Daimler Begins Electrification of E-Bus Depot in The Hague

Daimler Buses Solutions GmbH recently began work on a major project, beginning the construction measures for a brand new e-bus depot in The Hague.

The new depot is set to include a total of 41 charging stations, with 122 charging points to be located throughout the site. As part of the project, Daimler Buses Solutions will also be retrofitting the entirety of the HTM Personenvervoer NV depot, providing charging management, software and the overall operating concept for the site.

Commissioning is currently planned for the third quarter of 2024
Dietrich Müller, Managing Director of Daimler Buses Solutions GmbH:

“Our key expertise is the development of innovative and customized e-systems from a single source.

“Together with our customers, we create ideal conditions to operate electrified bus fleets directly on site. That's why we operate throughout Europe.”

Daimler’s project intends to include the creation of new ‘fast lanes’ at the HTM depot, enabling fast charging of fleets when out of operation during the day. This will enable the use of powerful charging stations capable of outputting up to 360 kW, with power able to be split during the evenings across several different buses at a maximum of 90 kW per vehicle.

The e-infrastructure will be installed with the help of local partners ABB E-mobility and Barenburg Techniek, with software for charging management supplied by Daimler Buses Solutions GmbH and experts from IVU Traffic Technologies AG.

As part of the package, Daimler will also deliver at least 95 battery-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro city buses to HTM.
