For the first time globally, mobile blood collection points will developed with the use of Solaris Alpino 8,9 LE electric buses. Solaris is one of the main exhibitors at the TRANSEXPO. Solaris signed the agreement to deliver two blood donation buses ordered by regional blood bank in Katowice.
Solaris has until now used the Solaris Vacanza 13 coaches as the basis for blood collection points. These used in Katowice were also based on the same coach. In 2007 the vehicle won a special distinction at TRANSEXPO – the International Expo organised by Targi Kielce. The mobile ambulance is a great novelty in the manufacturer's portfolio. The buses’ interiors will be adapted to the needs of blood collection and storage. In addition to special chairs for blood collection, the buses will also include a doctor's office, outpatient-clinic equipment, a reception area and a small gastronomic section. Teh passenger-are will be air conditioned. The vehicles will be equipped with, inter alia blinds and external awnings as well as the LED technology lighting.
This is the first order of this type in the world. The vehicles be completed by the end of 2018.
