Kempower receives Honourable Mention for innovative product design in Fennia Prize 22 design competition
EV fast-charging solutions provider Kempower has been awarded an Honourable Mention in Fennia Prize 22, one of Finland’s most prominent design competitions. The award was given to the Kempower S-Series charging satellite system for its unique and innovative product design.
The innovativeness of the Kempower S-Series design lies in its versatility, modularity, user-friendliness, and scalability. The same charging solution is suitable for many electric vehicles, like electric cars, buses, machines, or boats. The number of the S-Series charging points can be easily scaled as the number of vehicles grows.
The Kempower S-Series chargers were also praised by the Fennia prize Jury for their sustainable design. The narrow S-Series satellites have a small footprint and are therefore suitable even for cramped spaces, such as parking garages. The charger is both easy to access and use, thanks to its class-leading cable management and intuitive user interface. The interface also allows the charger to be commissioned and serviced remotely which reduces the need to travel to the chargers. In addition, the aluminum structure of the satellite is 100% recyclable.
“Providing a first-class user experience for EV drivers is the cornerstone of Kempower S-Series product design. Our management and many of our employees drive EVs, and that hands-on experience has also helped us to better understand what features EV drivers really need from chargers. We are very honored by this recognition as we strive to make our products as user-friendly, functional, and sustainable as possible,” says Mikko Veikkolainen, Chief Technology Officer of Kempower.
Fennia Prize is arranged by Design Forum Finland and Fennia in cooperation with the Finnish Patent and Registration Office and Elo. The competition awards companies and organizations that use design extensively in their business operations. This can become evident in many different ways through products, services, or business concepts.
