Jens Råsten, Fleet Manager at the Nobina Group said:

“As the largest public transport operator with largest fleet of electric buses in the Nordic region, we take great interest in the development of new sustainable buses, technology, and materials from Ebusco. Also, in Ebusco’s enhanced European production capabilities for our passengers and PTA's in the Nordic region.”

These units will significantly expand Ebusco’s presence in Norway and will grow the total number of Ebusco buses in the Nobina fleet to 176.

However, this will be the first time Nobina will deploy Ebusco buses in Norway, as its previous orders were for use in Denmark.

Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco said:

“In 2014, when Ebusco was just starting out, Norway already showed concrete interest and dared to strengthen its ambitions around sustainability by investing in electric buses. It is great to see that in line with our growth ambitions we are now signing a substantial contract for the supply of our buses with our repeat customer Nobina.”

The Ebusco 3.0 electric buses are expected to be delivered to Oslo in 2023.
