Ebusco has signed a contract with Nobina for 19 Ebusco model 3.0 12-meter buses. The delivery of these buses is planned for mid-2023. With this contract, Ebusco strengthens its position in Denmark. A first order by Nobina was secured in early 2021.

Still in Denmark, Keolis has recently been awarded a new contract to operate and maintain a fossil free network of 31 buses in Northern Jutland and said it’ll be decarbonizing the fleet through Ebusco 3.0 vehicles.

Earlier this year Ebusco hired Jonas Helsner as Sales Manager for the Nordics.

Ebusco awarded an order by Nobina

Nobina (headed by Henrik Dagnäs) is the largest public transport operator in the Nordic region. This follow-up order from Nobina brings the number of Ebusco buses in the Nobina fleet to a total of 100. By adding these 19 buses, 20 percent of Nobina’s bus fleet will be zero emission. In this way, Nobina is taking on a leading role in order to contribute to more fossil-free travel (in the past the PTO signed major orders with BYD).

The 19 Ebusco 3.0 buses will be used for the Public Transport Authority Midtrafik in Denmark and will operate in and around Horsens.

Roman Westberg, Strategic purchaser of Nobina comments: “Nobina is looking forward to receive first batch of Ebusco 3.0 buses manufactured in Deurne, Netherlands, complementing the growing fleet of Ebusco-buses of Nobina.”

Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco comments: “Scandinavian countries have shown interest in our electric buses right from the start of Ebusco. We look forward to intensifying our cooperation with our repeat customer Nobina in Denmark and the rest of the Nordic region.”
