Opava [CZ] - Tender for Seven Trolleybuses
J. Lehmann - 09.12.13
On 11.26.2013 the Mestsky dopravní podnik Opava published a tender for the supply of seven new low-floor trolleybuses. These should be financed by EU funding from the project "Regional Operational Programme NUTS II Moravia-Silesia".
The seven new vehicles will serve to restock the fleet to 42 units after a fire in the depot destroyed seven trolleybuses (koda 14Tr 77, 81, and Solaris 89 , 90, 96, 98 and 99). All of the other trolleybuses, which were hit hard by the resulting soot, are back in regular service, except for no 88.
