EMT Madrid increases its fleet with 30 more Irizar electric buses
The Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT Madrid) has awarded Irizar e-mobility its fourth order with another 30 electric buses, which will take the total of zero-emission Irizar buses in its fleet to 85.
Once again, the model chosen is the 12m long Irizar ie bus, which has been operating in Madrid since 2019.
The vehicles will be powered by Irizar batteries and have two doors, 28 passenger seats and two wheelchair areas. Irizar e-mobility will also supply 30 interoperable ECI-100 chargers from Jema Energy (an Irizar Group company) with a 100kW smart charging system, capable of charging the vehicles in three hours using a Combo 2 charging socket. An inverted pantograph charging option is also available.
The vehicles will also include a remote monitoring system developed by Datik, which also belongs to the Irizar Group.
“EMT Madrid has become a global benchmark in electromobility and we are very proud to be able to contribute to the city’s sustainability policy by adding thirty new vehicles to its fleet,” says Imanol Rego, general manager, Irizar e-mobility.
