The Port of Gothenburg in Sweden has opened a public electric-vehicle charging and hydrogen filling station designed for vans.
The gates at the moment are open for Circle Ok’s charging and hydrogen filling station. The primary of its sort within the Nordic area, it has been constructed from a heavy vans perspective, with the intention of facilitating the inexperienced transition for heavy items visitors in and across the Port of Gothenburg.
The station will type a brand new hub of the port for facilitating the transition from fossil to electrical energy and various fuels for heavy items visitors. Initially there can be six public charging stations for electrically powered heavy vans, with a capability of as much as 360 kW per charging bay. Having a number of charging bays on the identical location means not solely elevated capability, but in addition shorter ready instances. Inside one 12 months there can be hydrogen accessible on the station.
Over 1 million heavy vans accumulate or ship items on the Port of Gothenburg yearly. The port has performed a examine of the driving patterns of the heavy vans along with Volvo Group, Scania and Stena Line within the collaboration initiative Tranzero. A big proportion of heavy vans have been recognized as significantly appropriate for the fossil-free transition right here and now, and a public station for charging and hydrogen within the coronary heart of the port can be a key enabler.

The station is constructed from a heavy vans perspective, offering good turning radius and guaranteeing that every one charging bays could be accessed from a number of instructions by totally different sorts of heavy vans.
