Announcement
The 1.2 MW megastatation from Ekoenergetyka-Polska has been delivered to Hamburg and the work on the commissioning of the entire infrastructure is in progress. The depot area is being gradually modernised so that soon the electricity from the powerful station will flow through the wires and power the first electric buses!

Megacontract – Megastation

Last year, Ekoenergetyka-Polska signed a contract with Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg-Holstein, one of the largest public transport operators in Germany. The 8-year framework agreement provides for the delivery of a charging station for electric buses with a total capacity of more than 7 MW. The implementation of the charging infrastructure is one of the stages of an ambitious plan for the total electrification of the rolling stock in Hamburg by 2030.

Station transport

The first step in the implementation of this agreement was the production of 1.2 MW station. At the end of March we informed about the successful completion of internal tests of the charger. Then the station, which was enclosed in concrete casing and weighed almost 30 tons, was loaded with cranes and delivered by a special oversized transport to Hamburg.

Satellite connection

There, after it had been laid on foundations and assembly work, it was connected to the transformer station. Its power of 1.2 MW consists of 4 blocks with a power of 300 kW, each of which can charge 4 buses at the same time. In order to be able to load 16 buses at the same time, it was necessary to install and connect specially designed satellites. This stage has already been completed – 8 red distributors with the Ekoenergetyka-Posla logo already stand on the depot square in Hamburg.

Testing, acceptance and …  next deliveries

When the construction works at the depot are completed, the first tests of the operator’s electric bus chargers will be carried out. After passing the tests and technical acceptance, the station will be officially launched and the first buses powered by the infrastructure of the Polish manufacturer will go to the streets of Hamburg.

The delivery of further 1.2 MW megastations for Hamburg is planned for September 2019 and 2020.

Let’s make it official! We have joined 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.

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.

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.


2019


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 an infrastructure is growing, which is an essential element of the development of electromobility. We can safely say that Ekoenergetyka-Polska is a driving force behind the “eRevolution” and makes electromobility a reality.
