De Lijn, a Flemish public transport company, wanted to offer a zero-emission public transport service by 2035 but lacked the necessary charging infrastructure. SPIE teamed up with Ekoenergetyka, a Polish company specialising in electric charging infrastructure, to best respond to the scope and technical specifications of De Lijn’s needs. Together, they handled the delivery, commissioning and maintenance of charging stations for De Lijn’s fleet of electric and e-hybrid buses.

Following the successful conclusion of this framework agreement, De Lijn placed an order for 252 additional charging stations at its depots across Belgium. SPIE has delivered innovative, high-quality charging solutions as well as excellent results in terms of total cost of ownership and technical specification, ensuring the successful continuation of De Lijn’s transition to a public transport free of direct emissions.
