Electric bus retrofit - deceleration tests
At the end of March 2021, after a year of uncertainty and delays with the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic, Barraqueiro's work team, with the precious help of ISEL and the kind collaboration of the Air Force, BA2 - CFMTFA tested the bus on the track, in Ota, accompanied by the Municipality of Alenquer.
Electric bus retrofit
Responding to this challenge, Barraqueiro Transportes, S.A., in collaboration with the Municipality of Alenquer under the LVpD of Alenquer, and under the technical supervision of the Low Carbon Energy Conversion (LCEC) Laboratory of the Lisbon Higher Institute of Engineering, began the development of a pilot project to convert diesel minibuses into electric propulsion vehicles.
