On March 15, 2018 the batch of 5 trolley buses Trolza-5275.03 Optima was shipped from Trolza, CJSC. The trolley buses are destined for Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The project is financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
This is the first stage of the implementation of the contract for the supply to Bishkek of 37 medium-duty trolley buses «Trolza». It was signed in the fall of 2017. The total amount of the contract is 4.95 million euro. Within the framework of the project, training of the staff of the Bishkek Trolleybus Directorate is planned at the premises of Trolza, CJSC.
In recent years, this is the third joint project of the plant and EBRD in Kyrgyzstan. In 2013, 44 trolley buses were delivered to Bishkek. In 2017, 23 vehicles were delivered to Osh city in Kyrgyzstan.
It is also to particularly note that this is the first export contract of Trolza, CJSC within the state program of industrial export support “Made in Russia”. Russian Export Center, JSC is the program operator.
Trolza is working hard on geographic supply growth. I would like to pay special attention to the measures from the government to stimulate the non-resource exports. The Russian Export Center program “Made in Russia” offers new opportunities to promote our products on foreign markets. In our case it was an informational support of the company’s product. I’m certain these efforts will allow us to sign new contracts for supply of our machines abroad.
