Moldova mulls over project to assemble Belarusian electric buses

MINSK, 13 July (BelTA) – Moldova is considering the possibility of assembling Belarusian electric buses, Moldova President Igor Dodon said as he visited Belkommunmash Holding Company on 13 July, BelTA has learned.

Igor Dodon got familiarized with the equipment produced by Belkommunmash. He showed special interest in the electric buses produced since 2016. “I hope new models will enter service in Chisinau in the nearest future, too. We will discuss the possibility of assembling these vehicles,” the president noted.

He shared his impressions of the visit to the Belarusian company. “What I saw here was beyond my expectations. I have been to similar plants in the EU, and I can say this one is better. I know a lot about this company. We have bought a hundred trams and another hundred to co-assemble in Chisinau. This means that some 200 Belkommunmash trams are serving the routes of Chisinau. I am glad that our Belarusian partner is steadily moving forward designing the models of the future,” Igor Dodon emphasized.

According to Belkommunmash Director Vladimir Korol, the company has been cooperating with Moldova for five years. “We have good background. We see the prospects for expanding cooperation in the production of wireless trams. We can promote our products in third countries. As for the electric buses, the interest in this kind of vehicles will definitely be growing,” Vladimir Korol pointed out.

In turn, Igor Dodon highlighted that Belarus and Moldova have many ideas to put into practice together. Belarus-Moldova trade fails to meet the potential of cooperation so far. “I think our relations will reach a new level following the meeting with the Belarusian president,” Igor Dodon added.

During the visit to the Belkommunmash company, the Moldova president learned more about the public transport manufacturing process and took a test ride on the new E433 electric bus. This is a low-floor electric bus with a total passenger capacity of 150, equipped with a video surveillance system. Igor Dodon also left a note in the book of distinguished guests.
