Today the CEO of Ekoenergetyka-Polska Bartosz Kubik has signed with MZA Warszawa a contract for 20 fast charging stations for electric buses with a total capacity of almost 8 MEGAVATES! The contract provides for the production, implementation and service of the stations.
The ordered stations have a capacity of 200 or 400 each and are used to charge electric buses when stationary at the bus stop. Chargers can be powered by both the pantograph and the CCS Combo 2 plug-in connector. The infrastructure is characterized by a monolithic structure – the pantograph pole will be integrated with the station to form a compact structure.
The infrastructure will be built in 2020 on 7 terminuses in Warsaw:
Wilanów 6×400 kW
Chomiczówka 4×400 kW
Szczęśliwice 2×400 kW
Esperanto 2×400 kW
Browarna 2×400 kW
Nowodwory 2×400 kW
Młynów 2×200 kW
The purchase of the charging station is co-financed under the European programme “Infrastructure and Environment”. The programme includes not only the development of infrastructure, but also the purchase of 160 electric buses and 145 low-emission gas vehicles by the end of next year. 130 fully electric buses will be supplied by Solaris. Total support from the European Union under this project amounts to PLN 180 million.
