The Portuguese charging station manufacturer Efacec has been selected by Allego to supply and install 90 high power chargers in Germany and the Netherlands over the next two years.
Specifically, this is the HV350 HPC column, which enables charging capacities of up to 350 kW. With the HV350 and its liquid-cooled cable, electricity can be recharged for up to 30 kilometres in one minute.
The devices will be used in a pan-European HPC project led by Allego. Although not explicitly mentioned by name, it is likely to be MEGA-E (Metropolitan Greater Areas Electrified). Last week, the first site in Germany went online. The charging stations (two 350 kW chargers and a 50 kW triple charger) are located on the grounds of the “Garten von Ehren” garden centre in Hamburg.
MEGA-E’s high-performance charging network includes the installation of 322 ultra-fast charging stations in twenty European countries. In addition, 39 multimodal charging stations will be set up in at least ten European metropolitan regions – Tesla superchargers as well as mobility offers such as e-bike rental stations will also be located at these locations. The project will be supported by EU funding to the tune of 29 million euros.
