Lithuania and Poland calls for joint EU-NATO decision on Huawei

Moscow the most congested city in Europe

Poland

Poland’s Solaris Bus & Coach company will deliver 12 hydrogen-powered city buses to Bolzano, Italy. Bolzano is the first city to try out hydrogen-run public transport vehicles. The contract also includes an eight-year service agreement.

The bus is characterized by a low level of noise and lack of vibrations. Moreover, the only product of the chemical reaction, which takes place in the hydrogen fuel cell, is water. Refilling time takes a couple of minutes, the company informed.

Solaris is one of the Europe’s leading manufacturer of public transport vehicles. So far it has delivered nearly 17,000 vehicles to 32 countries.
