The energy transition is a major challenge for our society, and more and more initiatives are emerging to reduce our impact on the environment. In this context, the Rouen Normandie metropolis has embarked on an ambitious project: retrofitting 49 Crossway internal combustion engine (ICE) buses into electric buses for school use.
To carry out this project, they have teamed up with some excellent partners, including Comeca, a specialist in ultra-fast charging and supplier of charging stations for the metropolis.
Comeca is a major player in mobility and was selected for its technological advancements in ultra-fast charging. Previously involved in projects to purchase new electric vehicles, Comeca is now participating in a project to convert gasoline vehicles to electric. This process, known as retrofitting, is an ecologically and financially attractive alternative for major French cities and beyond.
The Rouen Normandie metropolis has chosen to retrofit part of its existing bus fleet instead of buying new vehicles, reflecting its commitment to sustainable development.
Comeca, already a supplier of charging stations for the metropolis, is proud to participate in this French project alongside Greenmot, Forsee Power and SPL. With its design and production of recharge solutions in
France, Comeca is a true local partner. This two-year project will be the first successful example of French collaboration in the field of retrofitting and energy transition.
Comeca is very pleased to renew its collaboration initiated in 2022 and to participate in this new project, which shows the Rouen Normandie metropolis’s commitment to sustainable development and energy transition.
In a world where electrical energy is essential, Comeca has been providing specialized solutions and services for more than 50 years.
Comeca, a company specialising in electrical solutions, has announced the appointment of Marion Birkel, new Commercial Director in Europe.
