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.
About SWM Stadtwerke München
SWM is one of the largest municipal and service enterprises in Germany. It offers public services for the city and the region, among others, it supplies energy and takes care of public transport and telecommunications. Since 2008, the main element of the company’s strategy has been the development of renewable energy sources.
The great amount of emphasis put on environmental protection and the development of electromobility by Munich SWM is visible in the design of the München-Moosach depot. The modern building complex called Hybrid-M aims at improving the conditions of the urban environment.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska is a leader among manufacturers of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and has been operating on the electromobility market for 10 years. So far, Ekoenergetyka-Polska has delivered over 500 charging stations to 60 cities in 11 countries with a total capacity of almost 45,000 kW. Thanks to the infrastructure of the Polish producer, electric vehicles are powered, among others in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Spain, France, Russia, Singapore and Germany. Each day, the installed charging stations provide over 30,000 kWh of electricity to vehicle batteries during over 1,100 charging cycles.
