The large Luxembourg group Voyages Emilie Weber orders 14 new 18-metre long, 100% electric Irizar ie buses, in addition to the 7 Irizar ie 12-metre buses that are already running at full capacity in Luxembourg. These are the first articulated buses of 18m with 525 kWh operating in night load mode. This acquisition also includes repair, maintenance and recharging infrastructure contracts.
The Irizar ie bus incorporates technology from the Irizar Group, both in electronics and communications as well as in the vehicle's main systems: power train, battery modules and charging systems.
It has 3 doors with 51 seats, 1 driver's seat, 4 folding seats and 2 wheelchair areas and has a total capacity of 104 passengers. These vehicles have a range of 200-220 km and will be loaded at night by means of 14 interoperable loaders with Combo - CCS2 load socket, also developed and manufactured by the Irizar Group.
As a result of its service strategy, Irizar currently has an exclusive, quality after-sales service in Luxembourg to offer R&M packages to the operator and is managed by technical experts and locally recruited people, which in turn has contributed to the generation of local wealth and employment.
The first vehicles will be delivered from March 2019.
The Voyages Emile Weber group is one of the largest passenger transport companies in Luxembourg, with excellence in transport service and values that make it successful: quality, sense of responsibility, tradition and innovation.
With the signing of this new contract, the Voyages Emilie Weber group continues to electrify public transport, within its project "empoweringMobility" which aims to electrify mobility, sustainability and improve the quality of life of the city and citizens.
