Exel Composites Bus Profiles Aid in Reducing Emissions in Finland

February 10 2020

Exel Composites has supplied Chinese bus and coach manufacturer Yutong with fiberglass profiles for 33 electric buses which have been delivered to Helsinki, Finland. The introduction of the electric buses is part of the country’s goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by five million kilograms a year.

Headquartered in Vantaa, Finland, Exel Composites has designed and manufactured some of the largest and most complex carbon fiber and fiberglass composite profiles on the market. The fiberglass panels delivered to Yutong were manufactured in China, and included the skirt and side panels for the electric buses. Yutong delivered the buses to the Finnish bus and road operator, Pohjolan Liikenne. Exel Composites is continuing to work with Yutong to develop and manufacture composite solutions for their vehicles.

The delivery of the electric buses is the first time that Yutong, which became the first listed bus company in China in 1997, has entered the Finnish market. This is also the largest volume of buses that Finland has purchased from overseas. The country, which is already renowned for its safety and efficiency when it comes to public transport, aims to have 400 electric buses operating in the capital by 2025.
