A consortium of two Polish e-mobility companies have won the tender to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at 10 locations on highways and expressways throughout the country.

 

Fast-charging station operator, Ekoen, and manufacturer of charging stations, Ekoenergetyka-Polska won the contract, which was announced by the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA). It covers the lease of land for the charging stations for a period of 10 years.

 

Charging standards

 

Each of the stations will offer fast charging with three charging standards, CHAdeMO, Combo 2 and Type 2, and a payment system using a credit card.

 

“At Ekoen, we set ourselves the goal of creating a network of charging stations that are reliable, easy to use and always available,” said Bartosz Kubik, president of Ekoen.

 

“We believe that anyone can drive an electric car as long as there is the right infrastructure. The implementation of 10 stations at passenger service areas belonging to GDDKiA is yet another step in achieving our goal.

“We operate according to the principle: you park, charge, pay and drive away and thus we show that driving an electric car is not an adventure for the most determined of drivers”

“Reliable charging is our priority. We operate according to the principle: you park, charge, pay and drive away and thus we show that driving an electric car is not an adventure for the most determined of drivers, carrying with it limitation and stress, but something anyone can do,” added Kubik.

 

The implementation follows Ekoen’s installation of the first electric vehicle charging hub in Zielona Góra city in Poland’s Lubusz province and announcement of its plans to deploy 100 new generation hubs across the country in April.

 

Ekoen claims its charging hubs will be key to accelerating electric mobility in Poland as well as in Europe, where EVs are mostly developing in cities, but where parking space for charging to serve the rising demand is in short supply. It added that providing charging not only for individual city dwellers, but taxis and last-mile delivery companies, will also be an important tool for cities’ clean mobility transition.
