Galp and Powerdot build HPC stations in Spain

Portuguese energy company Galp is joining forces with charging infrastructure operator Powerdot, also based in Portugal, to build 155 HPC charging points in Spain. And Powerdot announced a major order from Poland.

Galp and Powerdot want to install 155 fast chargers with up to 200 kW capacity each at 33 locations along Spanish motorways and busy roads in the autonomous regions of Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha, Asturias, La Rioja, Aragon, Galicia, Valencia, Catalonia and Andalusia. That means there will be an average of just under five charging points per planned location.

The partners did not disclose further details about the roll-out or the timetable. However, according to media reports, the first charging stations are already in operation in Seville, Castellón and Alicante.

Galp is planning 10,000 charging points in Spain and Portugal by 2025. The European Investment Bank (EIB) is providing the Portuguese energy company with a loan of 41.5 million euros for part of this development. Specifically, this will support the roll-out of 5,500 charging points by 2025 – on the condition that Galp builds 55 per cent of these in less developed regions.

The Portuguese charging infrastructure specialist Powerdot is also doing well. In addition to the HPC expansion planned with Galp in Spain, the company reports another major order from Poland. Polish supermarket chain Biedronka asked Powerdot to equip 600 parking spaces with fast charging stations by the end of 2024. 150 of the 120 kW fast chargers, each with three charging points (CCS, CHAdeMO and Type 2), will be installed this year, and 450 more next year. The first stations will be inaugurated in Warsaw in the coming weeks, according to the partners.

“We are thrilled to announce this project that brings together two companies with Portuguese roots and will make the charging network available in Poland to everyone embracing sustainable mobility. At Powerdot, we take the concept of destination charging seriously, and this is another large-scale implementation that will bring convenience to EV users in the country, allowing them to charge their cars while doing other daily tasks easily,” says Powerdot CEO Luís Santiago Pinto.,,,
