A new trolleybus fleet for the city of Kremenchuk
The EBRD supported a loan of up to €8 million to Kremenchuk municipal trolleybus company (KTU) for the acquisition of 50 new low-floor trolleybuses, including spare parts and maintenance tools, as well as workshop maintenance and diagnostic equipment for the new fleet.
The E5P is providing an investment grant of up to €2 million. This is the first urban transport project in Ukraine to benefit from an E5P grant.
The project will enable the municipality to renew almost its entire trolleybus fleet, which will have a positive impact both on the scope and the quality of services. The new trolleybuses will be 20 per cent more efficient than the current ones, many of which are at least 15 years old.
As a result of the renewal and the shift to energy efficient and environmentally friendly electric transport services, the municipality will benefit from the reduction of hazardous emissions, such as CO2, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, which contribute to high pollution in the city.
The project is implemented under the Ukraine Public Transport Framework approved by the EBRD in 2015.
