Linkker bus put to the test in Artic Mine

In co-operation with Vattenfall, LKAB and Kempower, a Linkker 12+ LE bus is being used in a project to evaluate how electric buses adapt to the harsh environment of Arctic Mines. The goal is to specify the needed performance requirements in order to electrify the personnel transportation both above and beneath the ground. Apart from the freezing outside temperatures the underground environment also poses some additional challenges: a height difference of 1.2km and inclinations up to 13 degrees.

Alstom Transport selected Linkker 12+ Low Entry electric bus for its project in City of Malaga. The project is to test in real operational conditions Alstom’s new ground based fast charging connectivity system SRS.

The bus is equipped with a 55kWh LTO battery, SRS fast charging connectivity solution and was commissioned in August for commercial operation on line 1 in central Malaga. The bus is charging 20-30 times a day in short bursts with 200kW power achieving daily mileage of more than 200km also in very demanding Mediterranean conditions.

SRS charging connectivity system can be upgraded from 50kW to 800kW without any major technical changes. Aboard the vehicles, the collector shoes are attached underneath vehicle’s chassis.

Linkker Electric Buses are doubling the speed of emission reductions

Elektrobus von Linkker in Luleå

Villähde, 17th October 2018 – City of Luleå has received first Linkker 12+ LE electric lightweight buses for Line 6 Porsön – Kronan. This line will be one of the northern most electric bus lines with operating temperatures below -30C. Luleå is a world wide benchmark for high performance electric bus operation in demanding conditions. The line will be operated with 5 buses and two 400kW charging systems. The fast charging systems are supplied by EkoEnergetyka.
