June 24, 2020

Two concessions, a total of 16 mW

Two years after the inauguration of the largest opportunity and depot charging network at that time in Amstelland-Meerlanden, the public transport concession to the South of Amsterdam, Heliox rejoices that it has been called upon by Transdev-Connexxion to relocate existing and deliver new charging infrastructure. Also, for the Haarlem-IJmond concession, Heliox was selected at the end of 2019. The itinerary for the e-buses stretches from the cities of Haarlem to IJmuiden and Beverwijk. It covers city transport as well as regional bus lines.  

Vervoerregio Amsterdam and the Province of Noord-Holland, are keen to live up to the ambition of the “Green Deal”. Both act as a driving force to make sustainable e-mobility possible. The main ambition is to have only new zero-emission buses in 2025, at the latest. The new buses will use 100 % renewable energy or fuel, which is generated locally, as much as possible.

Connexxion, a Transdev subsidiary, is the leader in urban and regional transportation with the operation of 12 concessions in the Netherlands. Transdev enables 500.000 travels daily, in the Netherlands alone. It is in their mission to contribute to a better world by investing in clean transport. Transdev’s e-bus fleet is the largest in Europe.

“Heliox is proud that Transdev has granted us two concessions. We have carefully examined the specifications and are happy that we have been able to comply with Transdevs requests”, says Koen van Haperen, CCO of Heliox. We look forward to fruitful cooperation with all parties involved”

Heliox asked Spencer Milburn, Senior Project Manager Zero Emission at Transdev Nederland, in an interview, about what he values in the co-operation with Heliox.

Spencer Milburn says: “We have worked closely with Heliox a number of times now, and we know that we have chosen a trusted partner for delivery of this project. Heliox are well-placed to deliver on the longevity of the charging infrastructure, the reduction of downtime, intuitive user interfaces, and flexible charging strategies. Heliox is continually looking to improve to better support our operations.”

Heliox is ready to create a successful project with all the partners involved and is committed to contributing to zero-emission goals in public transport.
