Ekoenergetyka-Polska implements a huge charging infrastructure contract for Paris
Ekoenergetyka-Polska strengthens its position in the international arena. The Polish manufacturer has once again won the tender issued by RATP and is implementing one of the largest contracts for charging infrastructure for electric buses in Europe. Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens ordered as many as 274 chargers with a total capacity of 24.5 MW.
274 charging stations
Ekoenergetyka-Polska will deliver 274 devices of 90 kW each to the Seine. The charging infrastructure will have a capacity of almost 24.5 MW! The Polish manufacturer runs a tailor-made project, as specified by RATP. Threrfore charging stations for two Parisian depots – Center Bus de Lilas and Pleyel – will be available in three configurations.
The first of them, standard, plug-in type, is equipped with a CCS Combo 2 connector. The second is a charger with a satellite to charge buses parked in the parts of the depot with limited space. The third one is equipped with a dedicated cable reel that allows to lower the cable from the ceiling to the bus socket.
– One of the greatest advantages of the solutions designed by Ekoenergetyka is their customization. We adapt our charging stations to specific customer requirements, both technically and visually. We are preparing a modern charging infrastructure for electric buses, which will be located in Paris, in accordance with the requirements of RATP – emphasizes Maciej Wojeński, Vice-President of the Management Board, Ekoenergetyka-Polska S.A.
This is the second contract of the French operator for the Polish leader of the emobility market. Already in 2018, both entities signed a contract for the supply of charging stations to the most populous region of the country, Île-de-France. Ekoenergetyka has delivered 96 charging stations with a capacity of 60 and 100 kW to Paris.
– The tender won two years ago was a great success for us. It was our first order on the French market – a contract with one of the largest operators in France – says Vice-President Wojeński. The fact that Ekoenergetyka won the contract again proves that the charging infrastructure for electric buses produced by the Polish manufacturer matches the needs of the growing e-mobility market perfectly.
Ekoenergetyka strengthens its position in Europe
The manufacturer of electric vehicle charging infrastructure has been focusing on building real electromobility for years and has been very successful in this area. Ekoenergetyka does not avoid innovative, bold projects that contribute to the development of the industry. – Contracts with international, large operators in the largest cities of Europe, such as RATP and Paris, is one of the elements of our development strategy. We consistently strived for the globalization of the company, expanded our research centers and increased production capacity to carry out larger contracts – says Bartosz Kubik, one of the company’s founders.
Ekoenergetyka’s contract is part of the ambitious plan of the regional transport authority Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) to eliminate all diesel buses. The French operator declared in 2014 a technological and environmental change that will eliminate diesel buses from the fleet and replace them with zero emission vehicles by 2025. These measures aim to reduce the emissions generated by the RATP fleet by 50%.
