First public charging systems with Kempower DC fast-charging technology installed in Germany 

Kempower, one of the leading providers of fast charging technology for electric vehicles, has delivered its first public charging systems in Kleve, Germany. The charging hub is operated by Kuster Energy.  

Kempower has been active in Germany for several years and has supported the electrification of bus depots and truck infrastructure in the country. The company has also delivered DC charging solutions for electric machines, e.g. for Berlin’s electric cleaning vehicle fleet. After the successful qualification of Eichrecht certification in late summer 2023, Kempower is now also able to provide charging technology for public charging stations. 

The location in Kleve is operated by Kuster Energy. With a total capacity of up to 400 kW and four Kempower Satellites with a single connection cable, EV drivers can charge their cars quickly and continue their journey. 

Philipp Oppolzer, Regional Business Development Director, Central Europe, comments: 

“This is an exciting moment for us. The hard work we put into the Eichrecht certification process is paying off. We are happy that we can now offer our solutions to a wider range of customers and are pleased about the first public Kempower charging station in Germany. Now electric drivers in this country can experience our user-friendly and reliable solutions. We look forward to the upcoming projects.” 

Lars Kuster, Managing Director of Kuster Energy, adds: “Kempower’s charging solutions are unique in efficiency and slim physical size. We are pleased to be the first public charging station in Germany to provide Kempower’s first-class DC charging experience to EV drivers. This station will certainly not be the last.”
