Cluj-Napoca/Klausenburg [RO] - First Four of Ten Trolleybuses Have Arrived
J. Lehmann - 23.09.13
The first four of ten new articulated trolleybuses arrived at the beginning of August 2013. The vehicles are based on a Irisbus body with Astra Arad electrical equipment. They are equipped with cameras, air conditioning, on-board computer and ramps for disabled passengers. It is expected that the energy consumption of the new articulated trolleybuses will be 40% less than for the previous vehicles. The cost of each vehicle is 1.9 million lei (around 425,000 euros). The framework agreement allows the purchase of up to ten new trolleybuses.
The four trolleybuses have been given fleet numbers 186 to 190, following on from the two-axle trolleybuses delivered in 2004 and 2010.
