Kempower to deliver EV charging solutions for Europe’s first large-scale charging network for heavy-duty vehicles
- Kempower has signed a contract with Milence (Commercial Vehicle Charging Europe B.V.) to deliver EV charging solutions for a new large-scale electric truck charging network in Europe.
- Initially, the company will deliver its Kempower Satellite charging systems with CCS and 400 kW of power.
- First deliveries are scheduled to take place at the end of 2023 and in the first quarter of 2024.
Kempower has signed a contract to deliver DC charging solutions for heavy-duty vehicles to Milence, a joint venture formed by Traton Group, Volvo Group, and Daimler Truck AG. Milence aims to roll out Europe’s biggest charging network for heavy-duty vehicles, including at least 1,700 high-performance charging points throughout Europe.
With this contract, Kempower becomes one of the charging technology suppliers that will help Milence develop truck charging hubs throughout Europe. Kempower will deliver its Kempower Satellite charging systems with CCS and 400 kW of power.
“The electrification of heavy-duty vehicles represents an important step towards achieving zero-emission transportation in Europe. Establishing a charger network spanning the entire continent is crucial, as relying on chargers in only selected locations falls short. We’re extremely happy to be part of this project, as it is key in driving the electrification of heavy-duty vehicles throughout Europe,”said Kempower’s CEO Tomi Ristimäki.
