Swedish charging specialist CTEK is cooperating with Stockholm Parkering to install more than 1,000 EV charging points in the new 18,000 square metres ‘Norra Stationsparken’ car park in Hagastaden on the outskirts of Stockholm.
Each of the parking spaces in the car park will be equipped with a Chargestorm Connected 2 EV charger from CTEK and coupled with a load management system, according to CTEK. This charger is available in numerous versions. According to the published press images, the version with two Type 2 connections is used in the car park; alternatively, there are also versions with only one socket or fixed cables. The charging power is not mentioned in the press release, it can be between 3.7 and 22 kW for the CTEK Chargestorm Connected 2 – with the Nanogrid solution, the load is distributed anyway depending on the load.
Norra Stationsparken is already Stockholm’s seventh car park where all parking spaces will be equipped with charging options for electric cars – when it opens, it will be one of the largest installations for electric vehicles in a car park in the whole of Europe. By 2026, Stockholm Parkering aims to offer electric vehicle charging in all of its car parks and aims to have more than 100,000 new charging stations by 2030.
“An investment of this size really shows that Stockholm is leading Europe’s capitals in supporting the switch to fossil-free transport,” says Cecilia Routledge, Global Director Energy and Facilities at CTEK. “For CTEK, it is also proof that our multi-year collaboration with Stockholm Parkering continues to develop. Business and government need to work closely with each other on mobility issues if we are to be able to achieve our set climate goals.”
