Driivz to manage high-power charging in the Nordics for St1
St1 Nordic Oy has invested in HPC stations across Norway at highway and metropolitan locations and is currently building infrastructure in Sweden and Finland.
The company now selected Driivz based on the platform’s track record for reliability and scalability. St1 also quotes the “adoption by leading companies in the global EV charging industry” among the reasons – these reportedly include the oil and gas corporation Shell and Mer by Statkraft. St1 fuelling stations also run under the Shell label in Norway.
As for Driivz, the software platform by the Israeli company delivers charging and smart energy management via real-time monitoring of chargers and remote service functions. The company claims it can solve up to 80 per cent of issues over the air or via “self-healing algorithms”. Driivz’s software is also Plug&Charge-enabled thanks to cooperation with Hubject.
“We needed a robust, flexible back-end system,” said Oscar Sandström, Director of Strategy and Energy Transition at St1. “We selected Driivz as our platform provider because we trust the company’s ability to support St1’s growth in the long run.”
St1 is building its network of charging hubs doubling as retail service stations with convenience stores, cafes or even dog parks.
“Our stations are destinations in their own right,” said Sandström.
“We are honoured that St1 has chosen Driivz to help transition its Nordic retail network from gas stations to energy stations as we work together toward a sustainable future,” said Doron Frenkel, founder and CEO of Driivz.
Driivz is owned by Vontier, a global industrial technology company with over 8,500 staff worldwide.
