La Spezia, Italy

Delivery: 2013

The Italian city La Spezia ordered 8 trolleybuses. The vehicles in question are 12-metre-long solo buses with centrally driven second axles. Due to the modular construction of the electrical equipment, these can be easily adjusted to 18- or 24-metre-long vehicles.

In addition to a low-maintenance traction container on the roof, Kiepe Electric is also responsible for a fully automatic OSA501 current collector system. The intelligent Kiepe Electric energy management controls the electric drive components which are optimally synchronized with each other. The resulting high efficacy saves energy, as does the standard technology for recuperating energy released during braking which is then fed back into the power supply. Thus the electric equipment is especially environmentally friendly.
