Intis and Slovenian Post want to charge e-Crafter inductively
Slovenian state-owned postal company Pošta Slovenije wants to demonstrate inductive charging of an electric transporter in a real-life environment together with German specialist Intis. As part of the Edison Winci project, Intis will retrofit a Pošta Slovenije VW e-Crafter for wireless charging.
As part of the project, Intis will also provide the corresponding ground unit, according to the Slovenian Post. Delivery of the converted vehicle is scheduled for the end of August 2022. Many details about the project and vehicle are not mentioned in the short statement.
Intis already has experience with inductive charging of a VW e-Crafter: Intis converted an e-Crafter to inductive charging with up to 22 kW as part of the LISA4CL research project of the TU Braunschweig. The company also has experience with inductive charging projects across vehicle types, and has set up a pilot project for electric taxis, as well as electric scooters.
