The purpose of this RFI is to solicit information and identify suppliers that may potentially participate in consortium-based bids in a joint procurement process for a potential combined total of 14 battery electric buses and an undefined number high-powered and low-powered (in depot and on-route) charging systems for London Transit Commission and Burlington Transit, both located in Ontario, Canada. For on-route chargers, the charging unit shall have an input voltage of 600Y/347V and/or the installation as a whole shall be capable of operating and connecting at 600Y/347V at the point of utility supply.
For on-route chargers, the point of supply is the secondary terminals of the utility owned polemounted or padmount transformer associated with the service. Service supply points are to be confirmed with the local distribution company prior to finalizing design.
The RFI period is now closed. We thank all RFI participants for their interest in the CUTZEB Joint Procurement Initiative. CUTZEB will contact participating suppliers directly with additional information on next steps.
