With an order from the Bulgarian city Burgas Irizar e-mobility is continuing its European expansion with its electromobility solutions. It is the first order from Bulgaria for Irizar e-mobility. The order involves 44 zero emissions electric buses and is one of the largest in Bulgaria to date. The delivery of the first units is expected to be made in September 2021.

Burgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria. The city’s public transport operator “Burgas Bus” will be in charge of operating the buses. Burgas has a fleet of more than 130 vehicles. Irizar e-mobility has worked closely with Burgas Bus for this project to give the fleet a modern and attractive design. Aesthetic features of the Irizar ie bus and the Irizar ie tram were combined in the design to create a mixed vehicle that, according to the press release by Irizar “maximises the luminosity of the space inside the cabin”. The order consists of 34 Irizar ie bus units of 12 metre long and 10 ie tram buses. The 12 metre long ie bus will have 3 doors, 26 seats (4 of which are PRM) and a wheelchair area. The ie tram will have 4 pneumatic doors, 32 seats (4 of which are PRM) and a wheelchair area. The buses will be equipped with Irizar lithium ion batteries. Irizar e-mobility will also provide 44 interoperable ECI-100 chargers by Irizar’s subsidiary Jema Energy. The chargers have a 100 kW smart charging system that will charge the vehicles in three hours using a Combo 2 charging outlet. A telemetry systems by Datik, also an Irizar Group company, will be included to give the operators the possibility to monitor and manage their electric vehicle fleet and get the maximum performance out of their operation.
