Turkey's first electric Trambu was produced: Turkey's first Trambus was produced. Trambus, a public transportation vehicle of the modern age, meets the environmental, fast and reliable transportation systems needs of the municipalities.
Trambus offers many advantages in terms of public transport, which are electrically operated, high in carrying capacity, economical in energy consumption, designed for the comfort of passengers, environment-friendly, 100 low-base new generation vehicles. Standing out with its low initial investment cost, Trambus provides comfortable and safe transportation for passengers.
Turkey's first Trambus of
Rubber wheels are used in Trambus, which draws traction energy from a double wire catenary. Thus, Trambus, which is actually integrated with city traffic, provides an advantage in investment cost as there is no need for any rail system. In the statement of Halil Söyler, Rail Systems Coordinator and Trambus Project Manager, who gave information about the Trambus, which was first delivered to Malatya Metropolitan Municipality; “Trambus will be a good alternative for cities without rail systems and will be able to work integrated with rail systems. Trambus systems show similarities with tram and metrobus systems with some features. On trambuses, mixed traffic and dedicated roads, signaling can work primarily. It is possible to provide a passenger capacity close to the tram systems, depending on the vehicle qualities to be preferred. ”
Low cost and equipped
Although the budgets may vary depending on the variables such as features, systems, number of vehicles, type and line length of the project, the investment cost per km in Trambus is between 1,2 and 1,5 million Euro, the cost of the tram is 5 and 7 million Euro, metro and light rail 30 million euros to 70-80 million euros, according to the construction of the viaduct-tunnel in the system. Therefore, the fact that vehicle prices and infrastructure (rail, scissors, signaling, etc.) requirements are less in Trambus systems provide a great advantage in initial installation investments. For this reason, the use of the trambus system as an electric vehicle in main and lateral arteries in other metropolitan cities is the right choice.
In addition, Trambus, as operating costs compared to conventional vehicles, because it has a longer maintenance period, low maintenance costs, if used long tools provide less personnel cost.
Trambus means; The steel, cataphoresis-coated high-resistant chassis feature is ranked as the vehicle's plus features. The double-drive drive system is integrated in the Trambus.
The electric drive system, which is the technology used by the Trambus vehicle, makes a difference with the energy and environmental solution plan. Approximately% 40 is advantageous for energy savings compared to conventional vehicles approaching the total weight of the 75 tone. The fuel consumption of the Trambus is one of the 4-5 (up to 20-25) according to the fuel cost of conventional diesel vehicles.
High passenger capacity with Trambus
They have a higher capacity than the conventional diesel-engined vehicles of the same length, since the motor and drivetrain vehicles in Trambus do not take up additional space and the vehicle lengths can reach up to 25 meters. If the 2 per passenger standing m8 is calculated, the 18,75-180 passenger (190-40 person sitting) in the 50 meter vehicle changes to 24,70-260 passenger (270-50 person sitting) in 60 meters.
Economic growth and increasing per capita income, together with the population growth in the cities, lead to an increase in automobile ownership and mobility. Increasing the number of vehicles and environmental pollution can be solved by increasing the number of public transportation options in the growing cities. Trambus systems, which are environmentally friendly, are sensitive to the environment by working with zero emission principle.
The choice of municipalities Trambus
Khalil said the first Malatya Metropolitan Municipality in Turkey releases 12 said they would deliver Trambus tool; “Trambus' high performance and efficiency combine ideal transport solutions for both operators, drivers and passengers. For this reason, local governments have a great interest in Trambus vehicles. In addition, Trambus is an ideal solution compared to light rail systems when new road construction is difficult and the infrastructure needs to be changed. ”
Trambus compared with other public transport vehicles currently used; passenger capacity, energy consumption, environmental awareness and modern face is a step forward.
