The first Milence charging hub in a Scandinavian country will be built in Varberg, between Gothenburg and Malmö in Sweden. The location is a popular stopover for forwarders and truck drivers, and the charging station is strategically located close to the E6 motorway. According to Milence, setting up a charging location in Varberg is the first step towards the electrification of transport routes in the Nordic countries.

In the first phase, the charging hub in Sweden will have eight charging bays and four CCS charging stations, each with 400 kW and two connections. Additional charging stations, including MCS chargers, are planned for a second phase in Varberg. A lounge, showers and toilets will also be available at the site.

“Recently, we announced multiple sites in Western Europe, and I am delighted we can now announce the development of our first site in the Nordics,” says Milence CEO Anja van Niersen. “Through our future roadmap, our initiative to create high-performance green corridors across Europe is gaining momentum. We have more plans to expand our network with several key sites this upcoming year, some of which are already under contract and in development, and all of which are located along key strategic areas and open to all trucks.”

Milence, on behalf of its shareholders Daimler Truck, Traton and the Volvo Group, is planning to install 1,700 charging points in Europe within five years – i.e. by the end of 2027. The first charging park was commissioned in Venlo near the Dutch-German border. A site in Normandy, France, is also due to be operational this month, and the opening of a charging park in the Belgian port of Antwerp-Bruges has been announced for the current quarter. Another location in Ghent, Belgium, has not yet been finalised but has already been announced. By 2027, the joint venture’s charging network is expected to span 15 nations. The first MCS chargers will be installed in the company’s charging parks in 2025.
