High-speed EV chargers in Orlen stations

PKN ORLEN completed the tender procedure for suppliers of charging stations for electric cars. Fast charging of EVs will be possible in 150 locations located both in cities and along transit routes throughout Poland. In the first stage of the pilot project, by the end of 2019, approximately 50 points will be launched.

Ekoenergetyka-Polska as infrastructure provider

The completed tender included the selection of suppliers of 50, 100 and 150 kW chargers that allow fast charging of electric vehicles. One of the three producers of charging infrastructure selected in the tender is Ekoenergetyka-Polska. The task of the selected companies is to prepare a project, provide the stations with their installation and service. PKN ORLEN charging points will serve all types of electric cars offered on the European market and will be equipped with three charging plugs – CHAdeMO and CCS (with direct current) and a Type 2 (with alternating current) connector.

As part of the pilot programme, the first charging station for electric cars is already operating in Płock near PKN Orlen, where drivers can benefit from free charging of their vehicles. The 50 kW charging station is designed for both electric (EV) and hybrid (PHEV) vehicles and offers the possibility of charging 4 vehicles at the same time. The power for each of the stations is dynamically allocated by the station’s controller during charging, thanks to which it will be possible to significantly shorten its time.
