Novosibirsk initiative introducing trolley with a long course of self-decided to adopt in Barnaul and Bratsk, where earlier this year entered service the machines.
"Today, there are five such trolleybuses two operated in Novosibirsk, Barnaul, and two in one — Bratsk. Actually, you should give credit to the mayors of Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Bratsk, — Said General Director of "Sibeltransservis" Sergei Parfenov. — Without their immediate attention and participation of the introduction of hybrid trolley buses would be impossible ".
On today trolley with battery Liotech "run" up to 60 km on a single charge, which allows you to associate routes suburbs and outlying areas of the city, to significantly extend the existing urban routes, to solve the problem of bypass obstacles on the way. Contrary to the claims of skeptics that the climatic conditions in the Russian electric transport will not receive their development, maintenance trolley shows that even the Siberian winter transcend them.
The cost of electricity from the trolley to the LIA at 1.8 kW / h per kilometer, which is almost two times less than usual. According to the calculations of developers, but at the expense of battery power savings will pay off in less than 3 years. Savings are also achieved through the effective use of power and production fund: As you increase the cost of transportation of electric rolling stock will fall. Long-term "life" and a high-capacity lithium-ion batteries "Liotech" will operate the "autonomous" trolley for 8-9 years without a battery change. In addition, batteries' Liotech "no maintenance throughout the product, so there is no need for repair and overhaul of batteries.
