FOURTEEN TROLLEY BUSES FOR ROMANIA
Škoda Electric has started delivery of a trolley bus fleet to transportation company Transurb in the Romanian city of Galati. All together, the Czechs are going to receive 150m CZK (approxi 5.9m euros) for supplying 14 models of its Škoda 26Tr.
Škoda Electric claims to be Europe's largest trolleybus manufacturer. Over the existence of its trolleybus production, it has delivered more than 14,000 trolleybuses in the domestic and foreign markets. Czech trolleybuses are operating in around thirty countries of the world - in Europe, Asia and North America. In Romania, there are 50 trolleybuses in Timisoara and another eight in Baia Mare.
In addition to the traditional development and production of trolleybuses, Škoda Electric offers two types of new battery-powered electric buses. The company also succeeded in a tender for the supply of electric buses for Arriva Morava, which presented a fleet of ten new electric buses in Třinec for the local public transport system last week.
Recently Škoda Electric has also been chosen by the Lettish capital Riga to manufacture and supply 50 trolley buses.
