eLoaded presents its latest solution offering high power charging from a mobile device. Capable of delivering up to 420 kW, so the claim, the German company wants to provide the HPC system in a charging-as-a-service model.
They have already set up a dedicated business called charge4hire GmbH. eLoaded claims they put an “experienced racing and event team” behind. The envisioned use cases may explain that choice but first to the technology.
The company already offers a suite of modular solutions such as DCCube, DCSource and DCBus. They all build the base for the new high power chargers. Now made mobile, the DCCube_mobile enables charging power of up to 420 kW, “even 500 kW are possible,” claims the company. Only for how long or for how many vehicles remains unclear. All eLoaded states is a standard grid connection as a pre-requisite.
The DCBus system then helps source the energy, while power cables help distribute the power from the grid connection to the individual charging points or cubes. The cubes are no batteries or power banks, as eLoaded points out.
They also offer to coordinate with local network operators and 24/7 on-site support to ensure “trouble-free power supply – worldwide”. These are large claims for a small company based in Swabia.
As use cases, the company sees exhibitions or racing events or even temporary trials. The former may explain their choice of team. They also have a first client in kitchen supplier HoGaKa Profi. They wanted a semi-public company charging park with 30 HPC charging points with charging capacities of up to 280 kW.
For the new solution with deliveries starting in May, eLoaded also names a “first reference project” with a “huge European racing series.”
The German charging infrastructure specialist also has plans for energy and mobility hubs eLoaded want to set up throughout Europe. One of these projects is an innovation centre for energy and mobility – where remains to be seen.
