Hundreds of people were celebrating in Stavanger city on 11th February, when the three battery buses funded by the Triangulum project were unveiled. The design of the buses was part of a high school design competition and the inhabitants of Stavanger could vote for their favourites.
At the event, the county mayor gave a speech presenting the project and introducing the high school student who won the competition and created the bus design.
The vehicles were placed in a triangle to illustrate the project’s name, covered with a banner showing the Triangulum logo and the promotional slogan “See what happens today at 12…”. Coffee and cupcakes were served in the middle of the triangle while other actions like face painting for kids were happening inside the buses. Hundreds of colourful balloons with the Triangulum logo and the slogan “Smart solutions for a smart region” rounded off a day packed with attractions. The activities were documented by a professional photographer, who produced a short film clip that was spread via social media and had instantly about 20,000 viewers.
