November 22, 2012, stands for a pivotal milestone for the commercialization of PRIMOVE:
After extensive and fully independent assessments, the TÜV SÜD homologated the PRIMOVE equipped Rampini e-bus in Mannheim for operation on public roads. This achievement confirms that the PRIMOVE engineering team found the right solutions when optimizing the onboard and wayside components; and it will allow us to go forward with the implementation of our first PRIMOVE e-bus projects for passenger service in Europe at full speed.
At the same time, the TÜV SÜD confirmed that the PRIMOVE system complies with all regulations and requirements regarding electromagnetic field emissions (EMF) and compatibility (EMC). When operated according to PRIMOVE operational instructions, the safety of the PRIMOVE system at Bombardier’s Mannheim site was also approved by the TÜV SÜD.
Curious guests and media "inspect" the solo e-bus from Solaris.
