Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) will deliver four electric buses and a fast charger to the city of Aarhus, Denmark, and its bus operator Busselskabet Aarhus Sporveje. The vehicles will replace four diesel buses to combat air pollution and they are expected to be operational by August 2019.
ABB’s 300kW OppCharge platform will be located at the end point of the 15km long route of line 13, where the buses will be recharged. OppCharge can power single and double-deck electric buses using a pantograph to connect the bus to the charging point.
Additionally, four ABB HVC-Overnight Chargers will be installed at the bus depot. These chargers come with ABB Ability connected solutions to help network operators monitor and configure the charge points remotely.
