SAFRA will be present at the Journées Hydrogène dans les territoires (Hydrogen Days in the territories) which will take place in Toulouse on September 26 and 27. With the marketing of its Businova in hydrogen version this year, SAFRA has become the first French manufacturer of hydrogen buses. This participation as an exhibitor on these days will be an opportunity to explain the advantages of hydrogen in the transport sector, and to show the manufacturing workshops located in Albi, where the first hydrogen vehicles for the Artois-Gohelle agglomeration are currently manufactured.
After Grenoble in 2016 and Nantes in 2017, it is the turn of the Occitanie / Pyrenees – Mediterranean Region to host the 6th edition of this national event in Toulouse on September 26 and 27, 2018. This edition will take place at the Pierre Baudis Congress Center and will bring together many industry players and local authorities with the aim of taking stock of the various projects and exchanging best practices. More than 350 participants are expected, around a program of conferences led by 40 speakers, and a space made available to the 40 exhibitors planned. The afternoon of Thursday 27 September will be devoted to visits to various sites, including SAFRA as part of the “mobility path”.
The subject is certainly of great interest, as registration for this tour has been closed for two weeks now. 60 visitors are expected to attend this tour, which will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in the workshops dedicated to the manufacture of the Businova. This will be an opportunity for them to discover the operating principle of the Businova hydrogen, to see the production line, and to understand the interest of this motorization.
This visit will also be an opportunity to discover the company’s historical know-how in the renovation of public transport equipment, by visiting the 7,000 m² workshops that currently house projects such as the Saint-Etienne tramway, the bogies of the Marseille metro or the Linéo buses in Toulouse.
