– AC353: Powerful system platform for passenger comfort

Esslingen / Renningen / Moscow, 9 October 2017 – Eberspaecher Suetrak has won a new contract together with the Russian subsidiary Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems RUS. The bus manufacturer Volgabus is equipping a total of 125 of its articulated city buses in St. Petersburg with the powerful AC353 air-conditioning system. This means that every fourth bus passenger in the Russian metropolis will enjoy climatic comfort from Eberspaecher Suetrak. With this major order, the world-wide supplier of thermal management solutions for buses is expanding its business relationships in Russia.

Volgabus, one of the largest manufacturers of city and intercity buses in Russia, has been using Eberspaecher Suetrak's products for many years. In addition to the expertise in thermal management, the company also appreciates, above all, the high quality of the systems as well as the support and service network: "In our long-standing collaboration, we have come to know Eberspaecher Suetrak as an extremely reliable business partner" explains Grigory Fritsler, Deputy General Manager of Volgabus. "With this new order, we are consolidating our business relationships and expanding our presence in the Russian region. This creates mutual trust on the vehicle manufacturer as well as on the operator side, in this case the city of St. Petersburg," confirms Oliver Wels, General Manager at Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems Bus & Coach.

Climate comfort even in high humidity
The AC353 system platform is one of the most successful products in Eberspaecher Suetrak's portfolio. It is suitable for worldwide applications in temperate climates as well as in hot countries. Even in areas with high humidity, as is typical for the city of St. Petersburg, the AC353 provides constant and reliable cooling during the journey. Thanks to the advanced MCHX heat exchanger technology, the system scores with its compact, modular design. The light weight enables savings in fuel consumption and thus also lower emissions. The AC353 can be installed quickly and cost-effectively thanks to its modular design with a standardized fixing point for all model variants.
