is a historic player in the renovation of passenger transport equipment, but also in clean and sustainable mobility. SAFRA’s strategy is based on environmental and social issues, through its different activities: the construction and marketing of hydrogen buses under the BUSINOVA® and HYCITY® brands, retrofitting buses to hydrogen with our H2-PACK® kit, the renovation and heavy maintenance of passenger transport vehicles, as well as the tailor-made service dedicated to the maintenance and monitoring of our customers’ vehicle fleets.
Manufacturer of hydrogen buses under the HYCITY brand
The HYCITY is a zero-emission city bus with a hydrogen engine. This vehicle replaces the Businova, the first hydrogen bus manufactured by SAFRA from 2018 to 2022. The HYCITY has a more standardized size, allowing it to carry a little more than a hundred passengers on a flat floor, in a 2 or 3 door version. Equipped with the latest hydrogen technologies, its approval incorporates recent directives and regulations in terms of cybersecurity, guaranteeing perfect control of the vehicle’s operating data.
Conversion of diesel coaches to hydrogen with the H2-PACK retrofit kit
SAFRA has developed a product to support the decarbonization of transport vehicles with the H2-PACK, a kit that allows diesel coaches to be retrofitted with hydrogen. It is currently being installed in the company’s workshops in Albi, on 15 Mercedes Intouro intercity coaches, following the contract won by SAFRA in 2021 with the Occitanie region.
The concept of the retrofit kit consists in replacing the thermal drive train by a 100% electric one powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
Renovation of passenger transport equipment for 65 years
The Renovation activity specializes in the provision of equipment, fittings and heavy maintenance for urban passenger transport vehicles, as well as in the renovation of buses, streetcars, metros and rail cars.
The technical and production teams are able to carry out all types of contracts, from the study with project management to the complete realization of the project.
SAFRA’s speciality is the realization of mid-life refurbishment, thus allowing the extension of the life span of any type of equipment: bus, metro, tramway, funicular, cable car, train, historical vehicle, rolling or non-rolling, but also the major maintenance of vehicles including railways.
