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.

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 chargers Inowrocław became the first city in Poland with entirely “clean” public transport. – adds Maciej Wojeński, Vice-President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska.


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.

Announcement

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.


Customised infrastructure


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.
