Announcement

PKM Katowice, one of the largest public transport operators in Upper Silesia, consistently implements the plan to transform the city’ fleet. At the beginning of February the first electric bus was launched in Katowice, now the city fast charging station from Ekoenergetyka-Polska has been put into operation.


Fast charging station in the city centre


The first electric bus that left for the streets of Katowice operates in the crowded city center. Therefore, it was necessary to install a fast charging station, which recharges the battery of the bus at a stop.


The station launched by the Polish manufacturer of electric vehicle charging infrastructure has a capacity of 200 kW with the possibility of increasing the power to 400 kW. Buses are charged by an inverted pantograph, which allows to reduce the weight of the bus and increase the reliability of the whole system, due to the lack of moving parts on the vehicle.


It is one of the first in Poland, and another after Inowrocław, the implementation of OppCharge type solution by Ekoenergetyka-Polska. Thanks to it, the charging process itself is fully automated and does not require driver’s intervention. The bus communicates with the charging station automatically via a wireless wi-fi network.


Charging in 5 minutes


The reversed pantograph charging system allows to recharge the bus battery in a very short time. The installed 200 kW station is able to charge 50% of the bus battery (capacity 120 kWh) in about 18 minutes, and in case of increasing the charging station power to 400 kW in 9 minutes.

Announcement

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.
