Trolleybus renewal in Togliatti

Last year  the city of Togliatti (Samara region, Russia, population over 700 thousand people) signed an after-tender agreement for  supply of 40 new trolleybuses. The winner - OJSC “Belcommunmash Holding Management Company” won a tender for the supply of 40 units for 377 mln.rubles  -  what is the largest supply of Belcommunmash  to Russia in the last three years.

The government of Togliatti cares about the ecological situation and thereforehas started an active renewal of the electric transport in recent years. The new trolleybuses have to bring to life the old trolleybus routes as well.

Trolleybuses of the model  321` are among the most popular and known (for example Belorussian capital - Minsk, is equipped with more than 400 representatives of this model). This machine meets all modern requirements for passenger transport: it is a completely low-floor trolleybus equipped with a mechanical ramp with manual control, which facilitates access for passengers with disabilities, as well as for parents with baby carriages. Trolleybus 321 is a single-section, compact and maneuverable model. The electrical equipment in this machine is located on the roof in a sealed compartment, which makes the operation of this model safer in comparison with high-floor analogues. The recuperation helps to save the energy.
