Durham, NC – (Wednesday, September 20, 2023) The future of innovative transportation is at hand at the Kempower EV charging plant in Durham as just this week, company engineers, builders, and management team members took their final tours of the highly anticipated plant opening in North America.
“To say that we are excited to be rounding the corner in the final stretch ahead of full production of this three-building ~170,000 square foot plant, is an understatement,”said Tim Joyce, President, Kempower North America.
The fast charging solutions provider is currently building production lines and testing units for its modular and scalable Kempower Satellite charging system before its pending grand opening.
“Our site produces NEVI-compliant, reliable, and user-friendly DC fast charging solutions for all electric cars, trucks, buses, boats, and machines, which is revolutionizing transportation one charge at a time,” said Marcus Suvanto, Director Operations & Business Development, Kempower North America.
“With the opening of our second production location globally, we are not only expected to bring hundreds of additional jobs to North Carolina, but this expansion of Kempower’s footprint is projected to generate revenue for Kempower’s supply network in North Carolina and in the region while at the same time sharply cutting into greenhouse gas emissions impacting our planet,” said Tomi Ristimäki, CEO, Kempower.
Kempower’s one-of-a-kind DC fast charging system consists of a centralized Kempower Power Unit offering up to 600kW DC power, which can be dynamically distributed between as many as eight charging outputs via charging satellites with 25 kW granularity.
“Electric vehicle charging technology holds the potential to revolutionize the way we get around, reduce emissions, and pave the way for a greener way of living,” said Tim Joyce, President, Kempower North America.
“Our new premises in Durham will allow us to meet the demand for reliable fast charging solutions and with research and development taking place right here on site, we soon be seen, as we are around the Nordics and the rest of the globe, as the leaders in sustainable transportation,” Joyce said.
