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.
