5 TROLLEYBUSES MODEL 321 IN OPERATION ON 5TH OF SEPTEMBER 2016, VOLGODONSK, RUSSIA
On 5th of September 2016, the governor Vasiliy Golubev handed over 5 units of new solo low-floor trolleybuses model 321 produced by OJSC “Holding Managing Company “Belkommunmash”.
To purchase five autobuses and 5 trolleybuses, the head of the region allocated from emergency fund almost 105 000 000 RUB. This is the second stage of developed renewal public transportation program in Volgodonsk. In the preceding year, urban fleet was renewed for 30% by purchasing new 10 trolleybuses.
The necessity of trolleybus fleet renewal has been topical question for city authorities since such trolleybuses as ZiU and VZTM replaced by Belarusian technics had worked off service life for a long time.
City authorities have cared both economy and additional convenience for passengers, ordering trolleybuses with climate control system and information system.
To have an easy access to trolleybus compartment for physically challenged people, the ramp door is provided. There is a crowding pen for carriage location and attendant.
4 visual verification cameras help a driver to monitor trolleybus inside and out.
It is significant some similarity in prioritization OJSC “Holding Managing Company “Belkommunmash” and Volgodonsk City Hall in prospection – innovative point and “clean energy”. Nuclear energy generation – in Volgodonsk; production of electrobuses are green transport of 21st century – in OJSC “Holding Managing Company “Belkommunmash”. By the way, the first model of electrobus has already rolled off the production line this year in September. That is why possible cooperation between Belarusian factory and Volgodonsk regarding the purchase of electrobuses – it can be expected step.
Vasiliy Golubev looked over new technics before operation on city routes and persuaded himself in convenience of new transport.
Modernization public transport program in Volgodonsk will be continued, the governor reported.
