Kempower to supply fast charging technology for Swerock's new fully electric Volvo concrete trucks
Kempower will deliver four new Kempower S-Series charging points to Swerock that will be used to charge the company’s four new fully electric Volvo FE Electric concrete trucks due to launch in Stockholm, Sweden, next month. Part of an extensive joint climate initiative between Swerock and Volvo Trucks, the new electric trucks will be deployed on specific projects with stated climate goals.
Thanks to Kempower’s state-of-the-art technology, the electric concrete trucks can either be charged overnight – sufficient for most driving tasks – or quickly during the working day. Kempower’s S-Series charging satellite system consists of a Kempower C-Series charging power unit and several S-Series charging satellites. Inside the cabinet, there are Kempower power modules that each provide 50 kW of charging power. Up to twelve modules can be installed in a C-Series charging power unit.
“We see commercial vehicles as an essential part of the electrification of multiple industries and are thrilled to provide DC charging technology to Swerock for this innovative project, once again showcasing how Kempower can implement electrification in different applications. We’re looking forward to further developing fast-charging solutions for electric commercial fleets and further empowering the EV evolution,” said Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower.
“There are several winners in this development work. Not only do we significantly reduce our climate impact, but with emission-free and quiet operation, we will also deliver a better working environment for our drivers, those who work on construction sites and the local population,” commented Magnus Lockner, Regional Manager at Swerock.
