Ekoenergetyka-Polska to install chargers in Warsaw
Ekoenergetyka-Polska has received another order from the Polish capital Warsaw for electric bus charging infrastructure. The municipal transport company MZA ordered 65 additional depot chargers with a charging capacity of 60 kW each as well as three pantograph chargers with 400 kW each.
In the summer Ekoenergetyka had already been commissioned by MZA to supply 20 fast-charging stations for electric buses with a total capacity of almost 8 MW. The construction of the charging infrastructure in Warsaw will take place in connection with the order of 130 electric buses from Solaris. The first 15 of the charging stations are planned to be delivered in the next six months.
This is all part of a larger plan to further expand the electric bus boom already ongoing in Poland, with the goal to have 1,000 electric buses on Polish roads by 2020. Testing and acquisitions for the project began in 2017 already, and have shown resounding success at home and abroad for the Polish electric bus industry. This particular order is also part of a plan to have 160 electric buses and 145 low-emissions buses servicing the Polish capital by the end of 2020.
