Irizar E-Mobility Becomes The First Green Energy Electromobility Factory In Europe


EKIAN - The largest solar farm in the Basque Country of Spain.

“Irizar e-mobility has become the first green energy electromobility factory in Europe by opening and commissioning the largest photovoltaic solar farm in the Basque Country (Spain),” according to a press release.

The park was opened in the presence of Lehendakari (president of the Basque government) Iñigo Urkullu, and a delegation of the Basque government, together with the Basque Energy Agency and the partners of the EKIAN solar farm, of which the Irizar Group is one of the largest investors with its acquisition of 3 MW.

“The energy generated in this farm will supply the Irizar e-mobility facilities, making it the first factory for the production of electric buses with zero emissions clean energy in Europe.”

Irizar said, “The Irizar Group is fully committed to the environment and, since it obtained ISO 14001 in 1998, has been actively taking steps in energy transformation.

“The commitment to electromobility (since 2011) is the clearest expression of its care for the environment and the well-being of citizens. The result of this commitment is the National Environment Award in the product-service category in Spain, which Irizar won in 2016.”

Irizar e-mobility was inaugurated in 2018, the first factory in Europe for electromobility solutions, designed and manufactured based on eco-sustainability concepts with a type A energy efficiency certificate, the maximum available in Europe. It includes a warehouse and domestic water heating system that works by using the surplus steam from a company located in the adjoining plot.

“The Irizar Group develops and manufactures its own batteries, under a partnership agreement signed with the Basque Energy Agency and Respol. It also offers a second life for its batteries, so that they can be reused at the end of their life-cycle in the buses, as storage components in recharging stations for electric vehicles in Repsol service stations, together with the power electronics associated with their use.

“Also in 2019, after completing the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), Irizar became the first European coach manufacturer with a certified EDP based on the international standard UNE-EN ISO 14025 by the International EPD System.”

It is currently involved in a number of Circular Economy projects, in alternative energies, and in other major European projects, all to contribute to a sustainable mobility future.

“The progressive reduction of CO2 emissions and other polluting substances, together with the introduction of environmental criteria, from the design of its products to the respect for the environment of its staff and freelancers, are their most important premises.”

Prevost Launches Driver Assist Electronics Suite For Peace-Of-Mind

Prevost has launched its advanced driver safety assistance suite, Prevost Driver Assist™.

“The electronic system works with the driver to mitigate challenging situations, including lane departure and potential frontal incidents. Its heads-up display is the industry’s first,” said Prevost.

The system includes adaptive cruise control with braking, following distance alerts – both available since 2011 as Prevost Aware – and adds frontal collision mitigation, stationary vehicle braking, lane departure warning and a dash integrated heads-up display.

Prevost Driver Assist is available as an option on all 2021 models and can be retrofitted on coaches with ABS8, back to model year 2018.

“Along with our operators, we are totally engaged in improving the safety of every Prevost motorcoach ride,” said François Tremblay, Prevost vice president/general manager. “We know that drivers are at the center of safety, so we integrated Prevost Driver Assist to do just that – help drivers before intervening. Drivers have told us this gives them real peace-of-mind and confidence.

“As an example of that approach, Prevost Driver Assist is based on a series of escalations. In the event of a situation, the driver first receives a subtle alert. If the situation continues, the alert becomes more urgent with a louder sound and brighter visual warnings. If the driver still has not alleviated the situation, then Prevost Driver Assist intervenes. It’s a true joint effort between the skilled driver and the vehicle.”

Prevost Driver Assist Components

Prevost Driver Assist fully integrates radar, camera, braking and driver communications technologies for motorcoach applications, offering:

• Frontal collision mitigation;
• Stationary vehicle braking;
• Lane departure warning;
• Adaptive cruise control with braking;
• Following distance alerts.

Prevost Driver Assist also fully integrates with the coach’s standard anti-lock braking and stability control programs. The data from these technologies all work together, constantly gathering and sharing information and then acting when needed.

Four Livery Edition MCI J4500 Coaches For A Step Above Limousine In Charlotte And Atlanta Markets


A Step Above Limousine's Ayman Abusamak, owner and founder, and Kaitlin Brady,
operations manager (front right), take delivery of four Livery Edition MCI J4500 coaches
from MCI Sales Representatives Sean Kelchen and Janet Cathey.

Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a U.S. subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., helped launch the charter coach division of A Step Above Limousine, Charlotte, NC, and its sister company, Ambassador Global, in Atlanta, GA, with the delivery of four luxury MCI J4500 coaches. The delivery included three new and one pre-owned MCI J4500 coaches.

“These Livery Edition MCI J4500 coaches are sleek and elegant in black on the outside and a complete luxury experience on the inside with detailed black leather diamond-stitched seating, best leg room in its coach class, power outlets and Wi-Fi connectivity. The models also feature such options as programmable multicolor interior lighting, collision mitigation and back-up cameras,” according to a release.

Ayman Abusamak, founder and owner of both companies, looked at other coach brands, and said he was attracted to the MCI J4500 for its modern design and quality craftsmanship, along with the professionalism of the MCI teams in service and support.

“Friends in the industry also suggested MCI to me,” said Abusamak, whose 30-plus fleet of vehicles also includes minibuses. “The move to motor coaches is a natural progression for us as our top clients are seeking this type of transportation.”

Abusamak’s company just signed a contract with Charter UP, an Atlanta-based charter bus service reservation platform that connects customers and groups in need of ground transportation. Other major events in 2020 will keep his divisions on the move. The 2020 NCAA Final Four is coming to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta starting April 4, and the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte runs August 24-27.

“The Livery Edition MCI J4500 class of coaches are real differentiators in both our markets,” said Abusamak.

Abusamak became an airport greeter at age13 for his father’s limousine company, and was the youngest licensed limo driver in the state of Georgia at the age of 16. He drove every style of livery vehicle while learning the business from the ground up.

“He opened A Step Above Limousine in Charlotte 20 years ago and expanded into Atlanta five years later. Clients in both cities get the highest level of personal service and well-trained drivers. All drivers receive ongoing training in safe driving practices with required participation in safety workshops and online courses offered through the MCI Academy. Abusamak’s company uses fleet-tracking technology including onboard dash cameras, electronic logging devices, telematics and GPS.”

Each driver dresses in a coat and tie for the job. “We’re still a limousine company,” said Abusamak. “We’re very pleased to be able to bring this new level of service to the areas we serve.”

MTS (San Diego, CA)

Ridership on the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) Trolley and bus network continues its steady climb reaching nearly 1.2 million extra passenger trips in the first six-months of Fiscal Year 2020, which began on July 1, 2019. The last time MTS saw this level of ridership gains was in FY 2015, when the agency recorded back-to-back years of record ridership.

The spike has been led by the trolley, which last year posted eight straight months of year-over-year gains (April-November), including a 9 percent jump in September.

“The increase in the first three months was encouraging, but you always want to see that sustained in the second quarter. We’ve made that jump,” said Paul Jablonski, MTS chief executive officer. “Last month we increased service on the UC San Diego Blue Line due to high demand, and we will continue to do those types of things operationally to keep the momentum.”

REV Coach LLC was previously responsible for the sale and servicing of Setra touring coaches in the USA and Canada.”

Making Optimal Use Of The North American Touring Coach Market

"With our new business unit, Daimler Coaches North America, we want to make optimal use of the opportunities offered by the touring coach market in the USA and Canada. The founding of DCNA underscores the strategic aim of Daimler Buses to further extend its global market presence," said Oberwörder.

DCNA is based in Fort Mill, SC. As an autonomous business unit, it is part of the global business of Daimler Buses.

The director is Dr. Thomas Rohde, who was previously responsible for the bus business of Daimler Buses in Central Europe as CEO of EvoBus Austria and EvoBus Ceska Republica.
