The InterEnergy Group has ordered 50 charging stations from Blink as they expand the Evergo network into Panama. The order consists of 35 Level 2 charging stations and 15 Blink DC fast-chargers and, there are more on the line.
InterEnergy is an energy supplier to the Dominican Republic, Panama, Jamaica, and Chile. They expect to deploy the chargers in Panama, starting with the 50 on order to ultimately install nearly 200 new EV charging stations by the end of the year.
The company’s Evergo network started in the Dominican Republic “and Blink Charging looks forward to supporting InterEnergy’s growing hardware needs as it continues its expansion into other countries in the region,” commented Michael D. Farkas, Founder and CEO of Blink Charging. He added that they had made “a conscious effort” to ensure the hardware is suited to the grid in Latin America that can be volatile.
Slower charging appears in order, but Blink says their AC chargers are of type Blink IQ 200 Level 2 AC are among the fastest AC chargers on the market. According to the company, they have a maximum output of 19.2 kWh and 80 amps and deliver up to 65 miles of charge in an hour, about 100 kilometres of range.
InterEnergy ordered 35 and another 15 DC charging stations from Blink. They hope to grow the network in Panama to 200 at the year’s end. InterEnergy’s Evergo network in the Dominican Republic already features over 200 EV charging stations. InterEnergy’s goal is to install 300 more throughout the year for a total number of 500 EV charging stations across Latin America.
This is not the first advance in the wider region for Blink Charging based in Phoenix, Arizona. They made a deal with ElectroChile already in 2019. The company has since expanded to markets in Europe and of course their native North America. Blink claims to have deployed over 23,000 charging stations to date, some of them networked through their own platform.
