  • A total of 129 EVs will support the cyclists and the race administrators during the event.  

Kempower announces official partnership with The Arctic Race of Norway, an annual cycling race in Norway. The 10th annual event will be arranged in Northern Norway on the 17th – 20th of August 2023. The partnership enables closer collaboration towards an emission-free event and empowers positive impact on Northern Norway’s territories.  

The Arctic Race of Norway tests the endurance of the world’s best cyclists as they come together to navigate Northern Norway’s mountainous terrain. Organized by Arctic Sport and Amaury Sport Organization, the same governing body that organizes top international sporting events, including the Tour de France, the race strongly emphasizes sustainability as it is one of the first cycling races to use predominantly electric vehicles when organizing the event.  

This year the event will include 129 EVs from the car manufacturer Xpeng, supporting the cyclists and the race administrations. Kempower will provide the event with 18 Kempower Movable Chargers throughout the race to power staffs’ and athletes’ service cars.   

“We are extremely happy to partner with The Arctic Race of Norway. After two years of supporting the event with chargers, this is a natural step to enhance our collaboration toward an emission-free event further. With our Kempower Movable Chargers, we can prove that reducing emissions from such events is possible, even in Northern Norway’s mountainous terrain. We hope to expand our collaboration with Arctic Sport and the Arctic Race of Norway in the future as well”, said Kempower’s VP of Communications Paula Savonen

Knut-Eirik Dybdal from Arctic Sport comments:

“Kempower has been a reliable charging supplier to the two previous editions of the Arctic Race of Norway. We appreciate the commitment the Kempower team has shown, enabling temporary charging infrastructure, and a smooth race for our participants and staff. Offering Kempower an official partner status at this year’s event seemed like a natural next step.”
