Stadtwerke Weilheim acquires five Atak Electric e-midibuses from the dealer Quantron AG. From January 1st 2022, Stadtwerke Weilheim will be in charge of operating the city bus, Quantrom says, in the Bavarian city.

Recently Quantron AG announced the launch of the Quantron Academy, a competence centre for customized training and further education for safe and efficient work on electric vehicles. The range of courses offered by the Quantron Academy includes driver training as well as various workshops and seminars such as “Diagnosis and measurement on electric commercial vehicles and electric buses”.

“Our preparations for this are in full swing,” says Peter Müller, head of Stadtwerke Weilheim: “An important point of our ‘City bus 2022’ concept is that we want to operate public transport in Weilheim in a more environmentally friendly way, not just a theoretical example, but a practical example of more climate protection. According to the concept, the current diesel buses will be replaced by battery-electric midi buses“.

For the procurement of the five new battery-electric midi buses, Stadtwerke Weilheim had issued a Europe-wide invitation to tender at the end of February 2021: “After the end of the bidding and clarification of several detailed questions, the best bidder, the company Quantron AG in Augsburg/Gersthofen, was awarded the contract for the delivery of five Atak Electric buses at the end of April”, informs head of Stadtwerke Peter Müller. He signed the corresponding contract together with Andreas Haller, CEO of Quantron AG, on May 11th 2021 at the new headquarters of the supplier in Augsburg/Gersthofen.
