Poland: Solaris to Supply 9 Urbino 12 Electric Buses to MZK Opole

Solaris has been selected to supply an additional 9 Urbino 12 electric buses to public transport operator Miejski Zakład Komunikacyjny (MZK) in Opole, Poland.

These new vehicles are scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2024. They will join 5 electric Solaris buses already in operation in the city, as well as 8 additional units that are due to be delivered next month under a 2022 contract.

The new buses will be fitted with an electric motor powered by energy from Solaris High Energy batteries.

They will each be able to carry up to 29 seated passengers, who will benefit from amenities such as USB charging ports and Wi-Fi access.

To enhance safety, MZK has opted to fit the vehicles with an antiviral system using UV technology. In addition, thermal comfort will be managed by an efficient air conditioning system with a CO2 heat pump that will use heat from outside to achieve the right ambient temperature.

Meanwhile, the drivers will be aided by assistance systems such as blind spot monitoring and a Collision Mitigation System (CMS) that initiates automatic braking.

Under this order, Solaris will also deliver the infrastructure for pantograph and plug-in charging for the new vehicles.
