EBERSPAECHER AIR-CONDITIONS ELECTRIC BUSES FOR ISRAEL
Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems Bus & Coach to equip more than 40 e-buses from Chinese manufacturers BYD and Golden Dragon with the electric roof-mounted air-conditioning system AC 136 AE HP. The zero-emission vehicles will be used by Israeli transport companies in Tel Aviv, Haifa and, for the first time, in Jerusalem.
The roof-mounted air-conditioning system AC 136 AE HP (All Electric / Heat Pump) is electrically driven and has been specially tailored to the requirements of hybrid and electric buses. Thanks to its reversible refrigerant circuit, it combines cooling and heating functions in a single device. In addition, the system scores with one hundred percent fresh air supply. Bus manufacturers additionally benefit from diagnostics-capable components, a brushless fan and the system’s modular design, which enables quick and easy installation. For Eberspaecher the cooperation with the two Chinese manufacturers is a key step in further expanding its global presence in this zero-emission bus market. The majority of the more than 40 electric buses are operated by public transport companies in Israel’s major cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa. In future, seven BYD vehicles will also be the first all-electric buses to be used in Jerusalem’s public transport system.
