Oscar Puente, mayor of Valladolid; Luis Angel Vélez, Member of the Council for Mobility and City House of the Metropolis of Valladolid; and Alvaro Fernandez, Managing Director of AUVASA, are so happy with the order that they visited Irizar e-mobility on Monday.

By way of charging these giant batteries, “they are going to have a twin charging system consisting of an inverted pantograph and sensible storage charging by Jema Vitality, an organization of the Irizar Group.

“With an inverted pantograph charging system, communication between the bus and the charger is established when the bus pulls as much as the storage and the pantograph mechanically lowers. The system is suitable with nearly all electrical buses in the marketplace and simplifies the day by day strategy of charging automobiles.”
