Slovakian startup tirn technology has won a pilot project announced by the Spanish carrier TUSGSAL and EIT Urban Mobility in search of an innovative solution to collaborate on the operator’s decarbonization strategy in Barcelona metropolitan area.

Within the project, tirn technology ZEB simulator will identify the optimal bus model for TUSGSAL operations, simulating the real range, state-of-charge along the bus service and charging strategy. ZEB simulator provided by tirn technology will provide Tusgsal also predictions of the total cost of ownership and CO2 reduction to improve the overall bus service.

In May 2022 the IT company was selected to be part of the EU-wide HUBCAP program, cooperarating with SKAND Skalica.

We are proud to kick off the pilot project with TUSGSAL, enabling them to get clear predictions of their future operations and scaling their electric fleet more cost-efficiently. What makes us super excited, it’s the fact that they have opted for innovative solutions like ours over traditional telematics, confirming the value of our unique approach. With our shared ambitions to decarbonize bus transportation, we hope to continue supporting them beyond the pilot project

In addition to the pilot project with the TUSGSAL, tirn technology has received access to coaching, mentoring, workshops, networking, and conferences as part of the EIT Urban mobility Scale-up program coordinated by PowerHUB.

“Since we’ve implemented 12 electric buses, we’ve learned that energy consumption needs to be monitored for efficient operation. However, the state of charge (SoC) depends on numerous factors such as weather conditions, topography, driving conditions, regenerative energy recovery, and more. The lack of insights into the future SoC across a route means not being sure if the buses can finish their routes, and when they need to be charged.  That’s why we are excited to cooperate with an innovative start-up like tirn technology. We believe that the information provided by their solution will make our internal decision-making processes about our next zero-emission bus deployment easier, and more energy and cost-efficient. Finally, we really appreciate an approach that does not need any additional onboard hardware”, Marcel Biosca Alvarado, CEO of SortSystems.

“Our mission is to facilitate the transfer of innovative, clean and sustainable technologies to the European markets and support their deployment in our cities. We do that through incubation, acceleration and scaling startups through various development programmes and through our pan-european network. We are delighted to support TIRN Technology and Tusgsal Badalona to contribute to a successful implementation of this pilot project in Barcelona”, says Toufik Dallal, Head of Acceleration Programmes at PowerHUB.
