Kempower is new EV fast charging partner to Vattenfall InCharge

(Kempower Oyj, Company Release, 21.12.2021 at 9:00 EET) – In the offering circular related to the IPO on December 1, 2021, Kempower announced that it had signed a letter of intent worth approximately EUR 5 million in November 2021 with a major European electricity producer and distributor. Negotiations have now been completed and Vattenfall, one of Europe’s leading energy companies, has chosen Kempower as one of its new electric vehicles (EV) fast charging partners for Vattenfall’s InCharge charging services.

InCharge is an initiative by Vattenfall and part of a commitment to sustainable transport. Vattenfall InCharge currently operates 28 000 charging points across Northern Europe. The investment in Kempower’s EV fast charging solutions aims to secure the growth of electromobility for Vattenfall. The order value of the first stage deployment is over EUR 5 million.

“Electrical driving is the future, and we have since over a decade been building charging infrastructure in close collaboration with municipalities, cities and companies. To reach the goals for the future it is important to grow together with partners,” says Tomas Björnsson, Head of E-mobility at Vattenfall.

Tomi Ristimäki, CEO, Kempower said: “We are extremely happy for this new cooperation with Vattenfall and InCharge charging services. The opportunity to offer fast charging services for electric car drivers in Sweden is a great continuation for the recent electric bus depot projects. In 2021, Kempower provided fast charging solutions for electric bus depots in e.g., Jönköping and Malmö, the latter one being the biggest electric bus depot charging hub in the Nordics.”
