Swiss energy supplier Industrielle Werke Basel (IWB) has awarded a major order to ABB to help enable the transition to sustainable e-bus operations in the city of Basel by 2027.

The contract is part of Basel Public Transport’s (BVB) efforts to convert its entire bus fleet to battery-electric operations. In one of Switzerland’s largest infrastructure projects, BVB is conforming to the legal requirement that all public transport in the canton of Basel-Stadt must run on 100 per cent renewable energy by 2027.
