Prometeon Tyre Group has affirmed its support for zero-emissions mobility by signing a supply agreement with the SmartBUS project

The project, developed by the Eco – Hev company, involves the installation of a fast-charging system using a charging station located at the end of the urban line where the project is being tested in La Spezia, Italy. The energy storage system is being tested on a bus circulating the city. It eliminates the need for batteries on board the vehicle and reduces charging times from 8 hours to 5 minutes, Prometeon says.

Under the agreement, Prometeon will supply Pirelli MC: 01 tires, the City Bus involved in the project, which meets the efficiency requirements of the SmartBUS system.

The tire’s characteristics aim to reduce rolling resistance and energy consumption while providing for a quiet ride through its specific design and tread compound.

The testing phase of the SmartBUS project is expected to be completed in November 2018.

“Prometeon has always been at the side of those who invest in innovative solutions for sustainable mobility, contributing with its own technologies, tyres and experience.,” said Gregorio Borgo, chief operating officer of Prometeon Tyre Group. “We are committed to creating a model of sustainable business growth which is attentive to the environment and the markets in which we operate, offering the best of our solutions.”
