Belkommunmash to sell 47 trolleybuses to Odessa

Belarusian trolleybuses will be seen in the streets of Odessa. Belkommunmash won the contract by tender on supplying Odessa with 47 trolleybuses.

The total value of the contract is 8m euros.

What is more, the Belarusian plant competed with rivals from the Czech Republic, Russia and Ukraine.

The Belarusian variant turned out to be better quality and price wise.

The trolleybus park in Odessa hasn’t been supplied with new transport since the Soviet times. Most of the vehicles have been working for more than 20 years, when the standards of expluatation are no more than 10 years. Due to the state of the trolleybus park in Odessa, the residents of the city started to prefer traveling by public taxi buses. The trolleybuses sometimes did not go out into the streets due to some problems.
