The total value of the order exceeds PLN 6 million.
Ekoenergetyka – Polska will provide charging infrastructure for electric buses for the second largest city in Denmark – Aarhus. This will be the fifteenth coutry in Europe, where Ekoenergetyka is present.
Ekoenergetyka – Polska won a tender organized by the Aarhus Municipality (Aarhus Kommune) and Busselskabet Aarhus Sporveje, the public transport operator in Denmark’s second largest city. Our Clients ordered 15 depot charging stations with 150 kW output power with two CCS Combo 2 plugs. Each station can charge two buses simultaneously with 75 kW output power. Charging infrastructure will be installed in two bus depots. The charging stations were designed from the scratch, to best meet the Clients’ needs. Net worth of contract is over 2,8 million PLN. It’s also possible that in the future, the order may be doubled as an option.
Our charging stations are characterized by quality and reliability and the devices we manufacture always respond to out clients’ needs when it comes to functionality and design. Choosing of Ekoenergetyka’s offer confirms out competences in electromobility field. We are glad that our charging stations will help make the public transport emission-free in another European city – says Maciej Wojeński, CEO of Ekoenergetyka – Sales responsible for sales for Polish and European markets.
Electrification of public transport is the most important element for clean transport and sustainable energy system for Denmark. Aarhus Municipality aims to be CO2 neutral by 2030. To achieve this target, the action plan for green transport was developed. The Aarhus city council intends to support this goal by increasing the electrification of public transport by providing the necessary infrastructure.
The company from Zielona Góra will have the charging stations installed at the depots by the end of April 2021.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska is a leading charging station for electric vehicles manufacturer since 2009. The company delivered almost 1000 charging stations to 70 cities in 16 countries such as: Poland, Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Russia, and Singapore.
The Dąbrowa Basin Region is confronting the question of electromobility in earnest. The largest city in the region is buying more electric buses from Solaris Bus & Coach, along with charging stations, which will be produced and delivered by Ekoenergetyka-Polska.
The Sosnowiec City Transport Company will be provided with both the depot facilities as well as city fast-charging stations. Ekoenergetyka will supply eight 80 kW mobile slow-charging stations to the base at ul. Lenartowicza. Devices equipped with two CCS Combo 2 connectors will mean that more than one bus can be charged at a time.
The city will also install two 250 kW and one 190 kW inverted pantograph fast-charging station at the bus station. Placed on special masts, they will not take up much space, which is a major convenience, especially in public areas.
Thanks to Ekoenergetyka-Polska’s vast knowledge and know-how, the inhabitants of Sosnowiec and the whole Dąbrowa Basin Region will be able to breathe cleaner air and learn the advantages of fumeless, quieter urban transport.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska is successfully expanding to Scandinavia. For Brakar AS, a Norwegian public transport organizer, we will prepare a charging infrastructure for the depot in the city of Drammen. Based on extensive knowledge and many years of experience, the charger manufacturer proposed a solution tailored to customer requirements.
In line with the design, two roofed shelter structures were built in Drammen. Special stands for electric buses will be placed underneath. Ekoenergetyka will supply 32 compact wallboxes of 30 kW each. They will be equipped with a cable with a CCS Combo 2 plug. Due to being suspended on poles, they take a minimum of space. The great advantage of charging stations lies in the fact that, despite their small size, they have the same parameters as standard structures with the same power.
Undoubtedly, one of the greatest advantages of the solutions proposed by Ekoenergetyka-Polska is their perfect match to customer requirements. The charging stations produced by the company are tailored to specific needs. This applies both to the technical aspects, such as power or a specific interface, as well as to the design i.e. the shape, type of material, and colour of the station.
This is not the first contract that a Polish manufacturer has been implementing for the Scandinavian Brakar AS. Ekoenergetyka is also preparing 300 kW of pantograph charging stations. They will supply power to electric buses on city routes.
We installed 25 electric bus charging stations of 60 kW each in the Warsaw Ostrobramska depot. This is another part of the contract, which we realize for MZA Warsaw. We will prepare for the capital city infrastructure consisting of 65 charging stations of 60 kW power and three pantograph stations.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska has prepared an individual solution for the Dutch public transport operator. The charging station with a capacity of 1.2 MW closed in a container is able to power 20 electric buses simultaneously! It will be installed in Zeist, a town near Utrecht. However, it is constructed in such a way that it can be transported to any place.
Mega Charger X 1200 – a new product of the Ekoenergetyka-Polska is based on the concept of a central high-power charging station for electric buses.It is a multi-output device, whose power can be divided according to the needs and delivered to vehicles using various types of dispensers with plug-in CCS Combo. 1.2 MW of Mega Charger X closed in a container facilitates transport. The company has experience in constructing megastations. A similar solution, also with a capacity of 1.2 MW was implemented in Hamburg, but there the device was placed in a stationary, concrete housing.
The 1.2 MW megastation for Qbuzz is encased in a metal container. It will be connected to 20 Point Zero dispensers with CCS Combo 2 plugs, which will power 60 kW Ebusco electric buses. The company has experience in constructing megastations. A similar solution, also with a capacity of 1.2 MW was implemented in Hamburg, but there the device was placed in a stationary, concrete housing.
The 1.2 MW megastation for Qbuzz is encased in a metal container. It will be connected to 20 Point Zero satellites with CCS Combo 2 plugs, which will power 60 kW Ebusco electric buses. This is a new solution developed by Ekoenergetyka-Polska.The whole station can be moved to another place. For the time being, however, the Dutch operator Qbuzz will install the station in the bus depot near Utrecht, in Zeist.
It was quite a challenge to adapt a solution that would work in a small depot space. The buses are parked a few dozen centimetres apart. Ekoenergetyka-Polska designed the infrastructure so as not to hinder drivers and service.
– We listen carefully to our customers and create solutions that will fully meet their needs. The Qbuzz received from us a charging station with all necessary infrastructure. When the contract between the operator and the city is over, the company can move it to any place of business. – says Vice President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska Maciej Wojeński.
The Netherlands has a plan to replace the bus fleet with zero emission vehicles by 2025. Qbuzz is one of the largest Dutch companies operating in the public transport sector – currently there are 99 fully electric buses in its fleet. Ekoenergetyka-Polska designed the infrastructure so as not to hinder drivers and service staff.

The Netherlands has a plan to replace the bus fleet with zero emission vehicles by 2025. Qbuzz is one of the largest Dutch companies operating in the public transport sector – currently there are 99 fully electric buses in its fleet.
The German capital is heading for a zero emission city. Berlin’s largest transport company has set itself an ambitious plan to replace its fleet of 1500 buses by 2030 with electric ones. Ekoenergetyka-Polska will create the infrastructure to charge them.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska will supply Berlin with 130 charging stations of 150kW each. This is another large order in Germany, after projects in Hamburg and Munich, among others. The first devices will be delivered to the customer already in February 2020.
Our chargers will be equipped with a liquid crystal display, CCS connector and RFID proximity reader. In order to ensure maximum safety for both drivers and service personnel when connecting the power supply to the buses, the charging stations will have a housing construction with a swing arm for feeding the CCS cable. This will eliminate the possibility of any collision with approaching buses. Moreover, this solution will minimize the wear and tear of CCS components during operation. Furthermore, the entire infrastructure will be equipped with a diagnostic system.
Berlin BVG is a modern service company that meets the challenges of the future with innovative strategies. Eco-Energy Poland has already worked with this entity in the past. The company operates metro, tram, bus and ferry networks. One of BVG’s plans is to completely replace the bus fleet (over 1500 vehicles) with electric ones. By 2021, about 225 e-buses are to leave the city streets.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska is a leader among manufacturers of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, operating on the electromobility market for 10 years. So far, the company has supplied over 500 charging stations to 60 cities in 12 countries with a total capacity of almost 45,000 kW. The infrastructure of the Polish manufacturer supplies electric vehicles in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Spain, France, Russia, Singapore and Germany, among others. Every day, the installed charging stations provide more than 30,000 kWh of electricity to the vehicle battery during more than 1100 charging cycles.
We have successfully completed another interesting project. We installed five pantograph charging stations in Espoo. Interestingly, we hid them under the ground!
We installed five 350 kW of pantograph chargers each in the second largest city in Finland. One of them is additionally equipped with a satellite with a charging wire.
We used an interesting procedure to design the infrastructure in Espoo. We hid the charging stations in an underground car park. Each of them is located on a separate parking place, so that the service personnel have free access to it if necessary.
The wires were led to the above-ground pantograph parts through the ceiling of the garage hall. Thanks to this solution, a lot of space has been saved. Our project in Espoo is an example of how we are always looking for a solution that is tailored to the customer’s needs.
The eRevolution is moving on to a higher level. We will be creating a modern infrastructure for electric buses for the German operator Stadtwerke München GmbH (SWM) and Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft mbh (MVG) in Munich. We will deliver 56 charging stations cooled with liquid!
About the project
The German public transport operator is building a completely new bus depot at München-Moosach that will manage 200 electric buses. The modern building complex, called Hybrid-M, will consist of, among others, an underground depot hall with charging stations and office rooms on the upper floors. We will install there 56 charging stations of 150 kW each. The power electronics will be liquid cooled. The waste heat generated by the devices will be retrieved as one of the sources for heating the building. This is the only such solution on a European scale!
We will distribute 200A CCS Combo 2 connectors in the depot. In order to start charging the bus, the driver will use the interface to select a specific charging station. The connector will be fed automatically from a ceiling reel, directly to the bus.
To implement the project, Ekoenergetyka-Polska chose a reliable German partner – WISAG Elektrotechnik Bayern GmbH & Co. It will be responsible for the electrical part of the project – supply and installation of cables and construction of a transformer station. The companies have previously cooperated in the implementation of a project for VHH Hamburg. The beginning of this new work will start in April 2020 and the entire infrastructure will be launched by January 2021.
The Vice-President of Ecoenergetyka-Polska, Maciej Wojeński is happy about winning the tender – This is another very large project in Germany. The charging stations will not only supply electric buses with power but will also become an alternative heating source for the Hybrid-M complex, which is an innovative solution, even on a global scale. We are glad that more and more operators approach the electrification of vehicle fleets comprehensively, creating from scratch infrastructures adapted to operating electric buses.

Let’s make it official! We have
Let’s make it official! We havejoined CharIN! Organization’s Steering Committee accepted Ekoenergetyka – Polska as a new member of the association.
CharIN is an international non-profit association formed by many experts from all over the world from various industries. The aim of the organization is to support the development of electromobility through the promotion and implementing of a universal international standard for charging of EVs – Combined Charging System (CCS).
CCS is a solution that combines different charging methods. Drivers of electric vehicles of various brands can use one standardized plug to charge their vehicles with alternating current (up to 22 kW) or with direct current (up to 350 kW), depending on the output power of the charging station. CCS is the official charging standard in the European Union and is recognized by many international companies.
Being a member of CharIN we will have a real impact on the further evolution of charging standards. “Ekoenergetyka believes in individual approach towards every customer, project and development possibility and has been implementing this approach in all it’s projects all the while promoting and implementing international standards and is happy to be part of global CharIN association” – says Maciej Wojenski, V-ce President of Ekoenergetyka.
We are leader in production of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. Our product portfolio shows using of Combined Charging System almost in every charging station. We promote and advocate for the application of European standards of charging systems among it’s customers, suppliers and peers and is looking forward to continue doing so within CharIN association framework.
On 14 May 2019 at the University of Zielona Góra (UZ) an event called Elektromobilne revolutions took place. The event was organized by Ekoenergetyka-Polska Ltd. and the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer of the University of Zielona Góra.
Electromobile revolutions at UZ
The meeting was devoted to the electromobility industry. The aim of the event was to actively promote new knowledge about e-mobility and arouse interest in the industry of the future. During the event, the Vice President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska Maciej Wojeński told students and university staff about the history of the company, its beginnings at the University of Zielona Góra, the first charging stations, dynamic development, as well as services and products of the future.
Workshops for students
After the presentation, interested students took part in thematic workshops led by specialists from Ekoenergetyka. During the thematic panels they learned how to conduct projects related to electromobility, what is the technology and how to develop IT systems related to this industry. “I hope that the workshops will be an inspiration for those who would like to work for electromobility – says Wojeński – and in the future would support our team of engineers”. Students had the opportunity to take a closer look at electric cars, get to know the theory and participate in demonstrations of such cars, see the engine and take a short trip in a vehicle.
A New Future with Ekoenergetyka
Thanks to the Electromobile Revolutions at UZ, students learned that Zielona Góra is creating the electromobile technologies of the future, as well as that they can go into this industry and create a new future together with Ekoenergetyka-Polska
We have completed another exceptional project. This time it is unique mainly because of its power and size. Successfully passed the tests of a charging station with a power of 1.2 MW! This giant can charge up to 16 electric buses at the same time! This is the largest station produced in the history of the company.
Megastation for Hamburg
This charging station was built for one of the largest public transport operators in Germany, Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg-Holstein. This is the first of two blocks to be delivered to Hamburg in 2019.
Mega-casing made of concrete
Not only is the power of this charger unique, but also its casing. The power of 1.2 MW was enclosed in a concrete container, which was specially ordered and weighs almost 25,000 kg. And when the heart of the charging station is topped up with cables, contactors and power modules, it weighs almost 30,000 kg. The transport of this weight will therefore be a major logistical challenge, and powerful cranes will be required to unload it.
Mega-power – 1.2 MW
The 1.2 MW unit is divided into 4 modules with a capacity of 300 kW. To each of them are connected 2 satellites, each of which has two charging outputs. This means that the power of 300 kW can be distributed between 4 charging points and can power 4 buses at the same time.
Intelligent power management system
The infrastructure has an intelligent management system that allows you to make the most of its power. If two electric buses are connected to the station, 150 kW is transferred from the 300 kW module to each of them. When three vehicles are charged, two of them are powered by 75 kW and one by 150 kW. If 4 electric buses are connected at the same time, each bus receives 75 kW each.
PKM Katowice, one of the largest public transport operators in Upper Silesia, consistently implements the plan to transform the city’ fleet. At the beginning of February the first electric bus was launched in Katowice, now the city fast charging station from Ekoenergetyka-Polska has been put into operation.
Fast charging station in the city centre
The first electric bus that left for the streets of Katowice operates in the crowded city center. Therefore, it was necessary to install a fast charging station, which recharges the battery of the bus at a stop.
The station launched by the Polish manufacturer of electric vehicle charging infrastructure has a capacity of 200 kW with the possibility of increasing the power to 400 kW. Buses are charged by an inverted pantograph, which allows to reduce the weight of the bus and increase the reliability of the whole system, due to the lack of moving parts on the vehicle.
It is one of the first in Poland, and another after Inowrocław, the implementation of OppCharge type solution by Ekoenergetyka-Polska. Thanks to it, the charging process itself is fully automated and does not require driver’s intervention. The bus communicates with the charging station automatically via a wireless wi-fi network.
Charging in 5 minutes
The reversed pantograph charging system allows

Ekoenergetyka-Polska, producer of charging stations for electric vehicles, can be very satisfied with 2018. Why? Tenders won from European giants of public transport, production of charging stations with a total capacity of 15 MW, foundation of a new Research and Development Center for new technologies in electric transport and an increase of employment by over 120%. All this shows that both the company itself and the market of electromobility are entering a new stage.
Charging infrastructure 2018
The figures speak for themselves – in 2018 alone, 185 electric vehicle charging points produced by Ekoenergetyka were installed. An infrastructure has been delivered to as many as 23 cities in 9 countries – charging stations with the Ekoenergetyka logo are now providing high-power charging to buses reaching from the Arctic Circle (Luleå, Sweden) to the hot Catalan coasts (Barcelona, Spain). Charging stations are also used by many Polish carriers, including in Warsaw, Krakow, Katowice, Zielona Góra, Stalowa Wola, Szczecinek, which shows that the quiet and low-emission public transport in Poland is developing. This is a record year in terms of the total power to the supplied charging stations – up to 15,000 kW!
New contracts 2018
Along with increased experience and growing market share, the trust that foreign clients have IN the Ekoenergetyka-Polska brand is also growing. The best proof of this is the signed long-term contracts for the supply of charging stations for one of the largest public transport operators in Europe: the Paris RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) and the VHH (Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg-Holstein). The contract for RATP amounts to up to 50 million euros, and currently the first order is being implemented for the contract of 90 bus charging stations with 100 kW each. On the other hand, the contract with the German operator provides for the delivery of 6 blocks of multi-output charging stations with a total capacity of 7.2 MW, each of which will charge 16 buses simultaneously.
The dynamic development of the market requires the company to keep pace at the same speed. That is why Ekoenergetyka-Polska is not slowing down and has ambitious plans for 2019. The company is gradually increasing production and organizational capacity, and the production plan assumes delivery of a minimum of 230 charging points for buses and electric cars. Quick recharging stations will appear in Poznań and Katowice, where they will serve electric buses operated by municipal carriers. In the coming year, charging stations for MZK Zielona Góra will be supplied. One of company’s key and prospective recipients in the near future will be PKN Orlen, with whom is signed a framework contract for the supply of fast charging stations for electric cars with power of up to 150 kW. They will be located at Orlen stations in at least a dozen or so locations in Poland. The total capacity of the manufactured charging infrastructure is to exceed last year’s result – with a total amount of at least 23,000 kW.
New R&D Center
However, the most important event of 2019 and a milestone in the history of Ekoenergetyka-Polska will be the opening of the “Research and Development Center for new technologies in electric transport“. The Center will open up new, previously unavailable opportunities for the company. The main assumption of the center is to become completely oriented to electromobility technologies that are not yet available elsewhere. Ekoenergetyka still assumes to maintain a dominant development position and technological advantage on the European electromobility market. Thanks to the functioning of the center, it will be possible to implement new employee development plans as well as start an internship program. These activities will allow the development of high-quality specialists, as well as acquire talented young people at the high school level. In addition, we are proud that the new research and development center will be the first such institution in Europe.
We power eRevolution!
Since 2013 Ekoenergetyka-Polska has delivered 330 charging stations to 45 cities in 11 countries with a total power of 22,000 kW. Each day, the installed charging stations deliver up to 300,000 kWh while 550 charging cycles. In 2019 alone, the company will provide charging stations with a total capacity greater than for all previous years combined. More and more cities are modernizing their fleets and introducing electric buses, and the popularity of personal electric cars is growing. As a result, the demand for
Ekoenergetyka-Poland has put into operation the infrastructure for charging electric buses in Inowrocław. Three OppCharge pantograph charging stations of 300 kW each supply 8 electric buses on the streets of Inowrocław.
This is a one of the first implementation of the OppCharge system in Poland. Reverse pantograph gives compatibility of charging regardless of the bus manufacturer. And the charging by pantograph is completely automatic and does not require driver action. Pantographs will power buses with hybrid and fully electric drive.
Launched chargers are next order for Inowrocław realized by Ekoenergetyka-Polska – previously a plug-in type depot charger of 40 kW power was delivered. Unlike the depot stations, charging via a pantograph does not require any driver’s intervention, the process is fully automated. Thanks to this, the buses can be quickly supplied with power while the bus is at a standstill, without affecting the timetable.
Inowrocław is the next city on the map of Poland, where we installed our charging stations. It gives us great satisfaction that with our products we are changing public transport in Poland for the better. – says Bartosz Kubik, President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska. Additionally, we are glad that we have contributed to the city’s goal of 100% ecological transport. With the launch of our
Together with the infrastructure of Ekoenergetyka-Polska, an external monitoring system was delivered, which gives the possibility to control the vehicle charging processes on an ongoing basis, to collect data on processes and to carry out system maintenance.
More about our charging stations:
The manufacturer of charging stations for electric vehicles, Ekoenergetyka-Polska, has supplied and launched the charging infrastructure for electric buses in Barcelona. The chargers were sent to the main public transport operator, Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona. In the TMB depot there have been installed seven quickPOINT Depot Charger with a power of 50 kW each and a quickPOINT City Charger with power of 500 kW.
Preparation of the infrastructure for the Spanish operator involved two challenges. Located in the south of Europe, Barcelona is known for its high temperatures., For the safety reason depot and city chargers have been equipped with a special fire-fighting system. In addition, the city charging station has been coated with a special white paint, which reflects sunlight to prevent from heating up. There were also installed more powerful fans, which allow for more efficient cooling of the charger’s interior. This equipment ensures that the infrastructure is mediterranean-heat-resistant.
The second challenge faced by Ekoenergetyka-Polska was the limited space. Barcelona is a large, busy metropolis with crowded streets. Therefore, both the urban and the depot charging station have very small base housing in order to occupy as little space as possible.
Dedicated monitoring system
In addition, the infrastructure is equipped with a real-time monitoring system. Although TMB already had its own system, it has been 100% integrated with the monitoring system provided by Ekoenergetyka-Polska. Thanks to this, the operator, using the OCPP communication protocol, can monitor the functioning and the processes of the charging stations on an ongoing basis.
The completed implementation for TMB (Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona) is a flagship example of our ability to adapt to all customer requirements. The infrastructure delivered to Spain has a dedicated design, dimensions adapted to the available space, is resistant to heat thanks to a special paint, additional cooling and fire system. And our monitoring system has been successfully integrated into the operator’s system. – says Bartosz Kubik, President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska. Our ability to adapt to the customer’s needs that is our competitive advantage, which distinguishes us from the competition. – adds Maciej Wojeński, Vice President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska.
Malmö has taken another step towards achieving the bold goal of a 100% green, greenhouse gas-neutral city by 2020. Ekoenergetyka-Polska has contributed to its implementation.
Fast city charging stations
Recently, three city charging stations, quickPOINT City Charger with a power of 300 kW each, have been put into operation. Inverted pantographs installed on masts power 13 electric buses supplied by Volvo. The chargers were built in two districts in Malmö – one in Ön in the south-west and the other two in the suburbs of the city in Svågertorp.
“Malmö is already the third project, after Västerås and Luleå, recently completed in Sweden. This project confirms our growing position in the Scandinavian markets. It also proves that our solutions work well in combination with buses from different manufacturers – in Malmö we had the first opportunity to charge electric buses from Volvo. – said Maciej Wojeński, Vice President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska.
Smart monitoring system
Together with the chargers for e-buses, Ekoenergetyka also supplied an intelligent external monitoring system. Its application allows to collect data on charging processes in real time and ensures efficient operation of the charging station.
The devices comply with the international charging protocol ISO 15118 defining the communication between chargers and e-buses and use the industry-supported OppCharge charging system.
In addition to the charging station, Ekoenergetyka-Polska has carried out the construction work necessary to install chargers and is also responsible for its servicing.

Ekoenergetyka-Polska – Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg-Holstein GmbH
Ekoenergetyka-Polska, the Polish manufacturer of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, has won a tender for the delivery of charging stations for electric buses to Hamburg, Germany. Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg-Holstein GmbH (VHH) is the second largest public transport operator in northern Germany. The operator has adopted a very ambitious plan, which assumes the replacement of all buses with electric buses by 2030. One of the key stages of electrification of transport is the provision of fast charging stations with a total capacity of more than 7 MW.
Framework contract for the delivery of charging infrastructure
Ekoenergetyka and VHH signed an eight-year framework agreement on 17 August. As part of the first delivery, chargers with a capacity of 1.2 MW will be designed and implemented. The block will be divided into four modules of 300 kW each, which will transmit energy to up to 16 buses via charging points called “Wallbox” equipped with plug-in connectors. Vehicles will be charged using a CCS-compliant Combo-2 connector. Each “Wallbox” will be equipped with two plugs of this type. The infrastructure for VHH will be equipped with an intelligent management system that allows the charging of electric buses with adjustable charging power. Ekoenergetyka-Polska is to supply Hamburg with the first 1.2 MW unit in January 2019, the next two in the middle of the year, and the next two in the further stages of the project.
In parallel to the work on bus charging stations, the German operator has adapted the workshop for the operation and maintenance of electric buses and plans to purchase them successively. By the end of 2019 VHH plans to open 48 charging points.
The chargers, by Polish manufacturer Ekoenergetyka, will be deployed for the first time in the city of Inowrocław. The 300kW devices, equipped with top-down pantograph, will be delivered this fall to power city’s new Volvo e-buses. This is the second bus electrification project for Inowrocław: the opportunity chargers will join Ekoenergetyka’s depot charger that the city obtained in 2015.
The contract for delivery of three 300kW quickPOINT City Chargers between Ekoenergetyka and City of Malmö was signed yesterday. OppCharge-based opportunity chargers, equipped with inverted pantograph, will be deployed in the third largest city in Sweden this fall and will charge electric buses from Volvo. The project is part of Malmö’s drive to become climate neutral by 2020.
The most active companies and the most interesting projects of the Polish energy industry were awared the New Impulse 2017 title during the XIV Congress of New Industry in Warsaw. The New Impulses Award recognises Ekoenergetyka’s contribution to the expansion of electromobility and electric vehicles charging infrastructure.
Public transport operator MZK Zielona Góra chooses Ekoenergetyka-Polska as a supplier of the charging infrastructure for the biggest bus electrification project in Poland. 60% of the city’s bus fleet – 47 buses – will be electrified. The buses will be charged overnight in the depot and during the day on bus termini using charging stations from Ekoenergetyka. The 4mln € contract is the biggest project of its kind in Poland and one of the biggest in Europe.
Tender for electric bus opportunity chargers for MPK Kraków – the city’s public transport operator – is part of the process to change the bus fleet in the city for one that is more eco-friendly and modern. Five pantograph charging stations at the end of bus lines produced by Energotronic-Polska, company that belongs to Ekoenergetyka-Polska Group, will be delivered in 2017.
quickPOINT Column Charger manufactured by Ekoenergetyka-Polska and installed in Warsaw, was designed especially to respond to the requests of cities that want e-bus charging infrastructure to suit their urban architecture. 200kW device with a footprint of only 1,3 m x 0.8m reduces space needed for high power e-bus charging at the end of the bus line and blends with the bus colours, providing visual identification for electric bus charging.
quickPOINT City Charger, capable of charging an electric bus with a power of 300kW started its operation at a bus terminus Pyynikintori in Tampere, Finland. The device, equipped with a pantograph, enables quick and automatic charging of e-buses during their 4-minutes stops at the end of their route.
cityCHARGER inaugurated in Barcelona on Wednesday, is the first high power e-bus device deployed in Spain. The 400kW opportunity charger is meant for charging at the end of the bus line and enables quick top-ups of the vehicle during its short stops. Thanks to regular, 5-8min high power top-ups during the day, the battery of the bus never drops below 40% of its capacity and the bus disposes of a limitless range.
