Kempower to deliver electric bus fleet fast charging technology to Bergkvarabuss AB

Kempower has been chosen to deliver electric bus fleet fast charging solutions to bus operator Bergkvarabuss AB’s electric bus depot in Strängnäs, Sweden. The charging infrastructure is included in a total delivery that SCANIA carries out to Bergkvarabuss. The delivery will cover Kempower C- and S-Series fast charging solutions and Kempower ChargEye Depot master.

The Kempower EV fast chargers are connected through Kempower ChargEye Depot master, which is a unique remote control platform for electric bus depots. With the platform, charging can be monitored and controlled in real time and the available power can be dynamically distributed to the buses that need charging the most.

The fast charging stations for the bus depot are delivered, installed, and commissioned by Wennström on behalf of SCANIA. Wennström is a Nordic comprehensive supplier of energy storage, distribution, and replenishment.

“With the choice of Wennström, we got an excellent combination of a technically advanced charging system and a professionally executed contract,” says Henrik Eng, Sales Director for buses at SCANIA.

“This is a great continuum for our Nordic co-operation in electrifying public transport in Sweden. We are pleased to deliver fast charging solutions that ensure an easy and reliable charging experience. With the ChargEye Depot Master, the depot power requirements are automatically optimized to minimum, while ensuring on-time bus preconditioning for departure,”  says Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower.
