A Fleet of 25 Full Electric Volvo 7900 Buses for Tide Buss in Trondheim, Norway

Geschreven op 28-9-2017 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Vervoer en OV Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Volvo announced they received their largest order for electric busses so far. Tide Buss ordered 25 fully electric Volvo 7900 buses to be used in the Norwegian city of Trondheim.

AtB, the public transportation administration company in Trondheim, was one of the first in Europe to order hybrid buses from Volvo back in 2010.

Now, with the new purchase, Tide Buss will have a total of 35 electric buses – making it the largest fleet of electric buses in Norway.

Starting in 2019, Volvo’s 7900 buses will be used on four different routes in Trondheim, ranging from 7.5 to 9.5 miles each.

The Volvo 7900 electric buses will be fast charged at the various bus stops along the way. The energy will be stored in four water-cooled, high-capacity, 19kWh Lithium-Ion batteries for a total of 76kWh. Significantly less than the buses from Proterra and BYD, which use respectively 257kWh and 324kWh battery packs.

The Volvo buses will be used on shorter, mostly inner-city routes where every bus stop is supplied with a fast-charging station, that can fully replenish the batteries within 6 minutes. Even though this smaller battery pack approach would not work for longer suburban routes, the benefit is that Volvo can maximize interior space and passenger capacity on their fully-electric 7900 buses.

The charging stations are based on an open interface platform known as OppCharge. This means that electric buses from other manufacturers can use the same infrastructure.

The charging stations use renewable energy only, effectively making the buses one hundred percent emissions-free. Compared to regular diesel-powered buses, the new fully electric Volvo buses use 80% less energy. Volvo takes care of all the vehicle and battery maintenance at a monthly fixed cost.  In total, the company has sold more than 3600 electrified Volvo buses globally.

    Volvo Upgrades its 7900 Series Electric Bus

    Volvo Buses is now launching a new version of its all-electric bus, the Volvo 7900 Electric. With significantly extended range and more charging options, the new Volvo 7900 Electric offers bus operators even greater flexibility.

    The newest version of Volvo’s 7900 EV offers 125 miles of driving on a full charge. That’s a full shift of driving- which can be extended even further if Volvo’s existing wireless charging pads are installed at roadways and stops.

    Battery capacity, in particular, has been significantly extended compared with before. The new Volvo 7900 Electric is available with a choice of 150, 200 and 250 kWh. This means that the bus can run far longer between charges, allowing it to be utilised more efficiently throughout the day.

    Six Volvo 7900 Electric buses for Brakar in Drammen, Norway

    Volvo Buses has secured an order of six Volvo 7900 Electric buses from public transportation administration company Brakar in Drammen, Norway.

    Public transportation administration company Brakan in Drammen, south-west of Oslo, has ordered six fully electric buses from Volvo. The buses will be delivered in January 2019 and operate on route 51 between Drammen and Mjöndalen, a route of approximately 12 km.

    Four Volvo 7900 Electric buses for Aarhus, Denmark

    Volvo Buses has received an order for four Volvo 7900 Electric buses from Aarhus in Denmark. These are the first all-electric buses to operate in Aarhus.

    The order for the four Volvo electric buses comes from public-transport provider Busselskabet Aarhus Sporveje in Aarhus. The vehicles, which will enter traffic in August 2019, will operate on route 13 in central Aarhus, covering 15 kilometres each way.

    The bus batteries will be topped up using opportunity charging via an overhead pylon at one of the end stations. The 300 kW charging station will be supplied by ABB.

    A Fleet of 23 Volvo 7900 Electric Buses Ordered In The netherlands by Arriva

    Volvo Buses has announced a few new electric bus contracts, for a total of 23 electric buses. The electric bus in demand is the Volvo 7900. It will be going to the Dutch public transportation company Arriva in the city of Leiden.

    Dutch public transport company Arriva operates throughout Europe and is a key player in alternative propulsion tech. It was among the first in Europe to order hybrid buses from Volvo Buses, according to the press release. Seven years later, it made an order for 23 new Volvo 7900 e-buses (this past June) — yes, not the quickest ramp up in adoption, but more than most.

    Technically, the new Volvo 7900 e-buses have 200 kWh battery packs. Deliveries are estimated between Q1 and Q3 in 2019. The Dutch Volvo 7900 e-buses will use four fast-charging stations from ABB. They will use an open interface, OppCharge, allowing other e-buses access. Volvo worked hard to get the efficiency of its e-buses to about 80%. The e-buses are a turnkey platform, with Volvo in charge of all vehicle maintenance.

    A Fleet of 25 Electric Volvo 7900 Buses for GS Buss in Gotenburg, Sweden

    Gothenburg in Sweden now takes the lead in the transition to electrically propelled urban bus traffic in Sweden. The order for 30 all-electric Volvo buses from GS Buss, subsidiary of Göteborgs Spårvägar, and Public Transport Authority Västtrafik, is the biggest order so far for all-electric buses in Sweden. It is also Volvo Buses’ biggest order to date. The buses will run on route 60 in Gothenburg from next autumn.

    Västtrafik, the public transport provider in the Västra Götaland region, has high sustainability targets. Among other things, carbon dioxide emissions are to be cut by 80 % by 2020, 95 % of all transport shall take place with renewable energy by 2025, and noise from transport is to be reduced.

    More than 60 Volvo hybrid buses are already operating in Gothenburg. Since 2015, route 55 has been operated by Volvo all-electric buses and electric hybrids as part of the ElectriCity framework. As of June 25 two all-electric Volvo high-capacity buses have also been operating on part of route 16.

    Now GS Buss, one of the providers of bus operations in Gothenburg, is purchasing 30 all-electric buses from Volvo. This is the biggest single order that Volvo has so far received for this bus model. The new buses will run on route 60 between Redbergsplatsen and Masthugget and also on routes 59 and 62.

    They will have 200 kWh battery capacity and will be charged at the route’s end stops and in the depot. GS Buss will be responsible for the charging infrastructure. The buses will be delivered in the third quarter of 2019.

    Bus route 60 is one of Västtrafik’s most heavily trafficked routes in Gothenburg. In 2017 there were more than 6.2 million journeys on this route and additional 0.7 million journeys on route 59 and 62.

    “It’s great to put more electric buses on the road in Volvo’s home city. We know that the electric buses on route 55 are highly appreciated by passengers, drivers and local residents alike.

    Now many more people in Gothenburg will be able to travel without causing noise and emissions on one of Gothenburg’s most heavily trafficked bus routes. In addition to giving passengers and drivers a pleasanter ride the electric buses will

    contribute to a quiet, emission-free environment for everyone living along the route. Electric buses create entirely new possibilities for urban planning since we can bring public transport closer to people, even indoors,” says Håkan Agnevall, President Volvo Buses.

    Volvo will provide all maintenance for both the vehicles and their batteries at a fixed monthly cost.

    Volvo recently announced the sale of 23 electric buses to Leiden in the Netherlands and another 17 to Oslo. Volvo has now sold electric buses to Britain, Denmark, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Singapore and Sweden. In addition to the all-electric Volvo 7900 Electric the Volvo Buses range of electrified vehicles encompasses hybrid buses and electric hybrids (plug-in hybrids). All told Volvo has sold more than 4000 electrified buses globally.
