The Sybel consortium, composed of SYSTRA Canada, BPA, EXP, Lemay, has been awarded the contract to modernize the infrastructure and electrification of the bus centre of the Société de transport de Trois-Rivières (STTR).

SYSTRA Canada will be responsible for the design of the charging systems, assisting the STTR with calls for tenders, and overseeing the procurement, installation and commissioning of the charging and charge management systems.

THE STTR ON THE ROAD TO A GREENER PLANET

The STTR is committed to providing optimal mobility services, thereby promoting the development and vitality of the city of Trois-Rivières. It operates not only urban transit and paratransit services, with a fleet of 62 12-m buses and 15 paratransit vehicles.

As part of its innovative ecological approach, the STTR wants to reduce its GHG emissions by propelling its transition to electrification. Simultaneously, it is grasping the opportunity to modernize its infrastructures to optimize their performance.

This project testifies to our customers’ renewed confidence when it comes to our expertise in supporting them in the energy transition of their bus fleets. The reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, noise reduction and improved passenger comfort, to name but a few benefits, represent a significant step towards improving the quality of life of citizens and making a positive contribution to preserving the environment. As a team specialized in electromobility, we are proud to play a key role in this sustainable evolution.

OUR DIGITAL SOLUTIONS DESIGNED TO REDUCE GHG

SYSTRA Canada previously assessed the energy requirements, as well as the required number and type of charging stations, to ensure the continuity of STTR’s operation.

This analysis was carried out using our dedicated in-house tools, Wild Turkey and TESS. This in-depth analysis will enable us to design the optimum configuration for the layout of the chargers and electrical rooms, ensuring an infrastructure perfectly adapted to the specific needs of the project.

ENHANCED SERVICE, REDUCED COSTS

This electrification project will enable the STTR, over the medium term, to improve the quality of their service whilst significantly reducing operating costs.
