Neste opens its first high-power charging station with Kempower technology

Neste opens its first public high-power charging station in Hankasalmi, Finland. This station at Jari-Pekka restaurant and service station has 8 Kempower Satellite chargers, 600 kw of total power, and a centralized payment terminal.

The 8 Kempower Satellite chargers and Power Unit will share power dynamically and can offer up to 150 kw per plug.

“What is unique about this Neste station is the centralized payment terminal. The payment terminal does not require registration from the EV driver and only one terminal is needed to operate the 8 charging outputs. The customer only needs a debit card to charge their EV. The charging process is activated via the payment terminal.”

Antti Jokelainen, Kempower Sales Manager

Pekka Vikström, Vice President of Neste Marketing and Services, comments on the opening:

“Neste has been at the forefront in reducing transport-related emissions with its Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ and we will continue to seek out new opportunities for supporting our customers in cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Offering EV charging to Neste customers in Finland is a natural continuum to our product and service development. Today we are very happy to introduce our first public high power charging station Neste MY Renewable Charging™ at Hankasalmi Jari-Pekka station where we use Kempower’s charging solution.”
