ATM Milano is expanding its zero-emission public transport fleet with new Solaris trolleybuses. An order for the supply of 50 Trollino 18 trolleybuses was signed in mid-November 2021. The contract is worth nearly €40 million.
The order for 50 Trollino 18 units, placed by operator ATM Milano, is an extension of an agreement signed in 2018, on the basis of which Solaris has already supplied 30 trolleybuses.
The Milanese Trollinos will also feature an advanced surveillance system. It will consist of 10 cameras, including a rear-view camera, a 10’’ screen on the centre console and a data logger.
Alberto Fiore, Managing Director of Solaris Italia S.r.l said
“We are very glad to enjoy such successful collaboration with ATM Milano, proof of which is the extension of the contract in question by another 50 Trollino 18 trolleybuses.
The partnership between Solaris and ATM in Milan began back in 2014. Since then, over 300 vehicles, including about 200 trolleybuses and e-buses, have rolled off the production line of the factory in Bolechowo and made their way to Milan. The Italian operator intends to completely forgo diesel buses in favour of locally emission-free vehicles by the end of 2030.
