Kempower supports Finland’s largest home electronics retail chain Gigantti in establishing a public charging network

Gigantti, Finland’s largest home electronics retail chain, builds an electric car charging network outside its stores in collaboration with Kempower and Virta. The Finnish Energy Authority’s decision to tender for high-power charging points accelerated the start of installation later this fall. Kempower will manufacture the future charging equipment.

It is important for us to develop our customer experience in line with the changing world, in a long-term and sustainable way. We are happy to be able to provide our customers with EV charging points all over Finland, with competent and reliable domestic operators, our partner Virta and fast charging equipment manufacturer Kempower. We will build a total of six EV charging hubs in the first wave in connection with stores. The Finnish Energy Authority’s decision to support us was also a positive signal for further joint development
