Rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging technology from Kempower has become fully operational at one of Sweden’s largest charging stations for electric trucks.
E-Mobility, part of the Soltech Group, which provides technical and management services into the offshore oil and gas market, has installed 15 fast chargepoints for Göteborgs Lastbilcentral (GLC).
The station has been commissioned for use by electric trucks and is intended to strengthen Sweden’s fast-charging infrastructure to support its freight and transportation sector to become emissions-free by 2045.
“We’re delighted to see this project go live,” said Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower.
“Commissioning one of Sweden’s largest private e-truck charging stations highlights the power of bringing ambitious Nordic companies together.
“We see the electrification of buses and trucks developing fast in the coming years and projects such as this are meaningful ways to electrify transport.”
Martin Salenius, CEO of GLC, said: “It’s terrific that these charging stations are operational as they will reduce CO2 emissions and make it easier for companies to switch to an electric fleet.
“I want to thank Kempower and E-Mobility for a smooth cooperation and welcome our co-owners, drivers and partners to our new charging hub.”
