Kempower’s high-performance chargers will form the backbone of Milence’s mammoth European network
Under this collaboration, Kempower will deploy its advanced Kempower Satellite charging systems, equipped with CCS technology and boasting a robust 400 kW power output. These state-of-the-art charging stations will play a pivotal role in Europe’s monumental shift toward emobility.
Scheduled for delivery at the end of 2023 and the early months of 2024, the Kempower Satellite charging systems are a testament to the company’s commitment to fostering sustainable transportation solutions. As a joint venture, Milence has the backing of industry giants Traton Group, Volvo Group, and Daimler Truck AG.
Milence have high ambitions for their new charging network. They intend to establish Europe’s largest charging network dedicated to heavy-duty vehicles. The project involves the deployment of no less than 1,700 high-performance charging points scattered strategically across Europe. This expansive network is geared towards meeting the charging needs of heavy-duty electric trucks. We’ve seen EU ministers recently calling for wider decarbonisation of haulage, this will be an essential step in that journey.
Kempower’s CEO Tomi Ristimäki, said:
“The electrification of heavy-duty vehicles represents an important step towards achieving zero-emission transportation in Europe. Establishing a charger network spanning the entire continent is crucial, as relying on chargers in only selected locations falls short. We’re extremely happy to be part of this project, as it is key in driving the electrification of heavy-duty vehicles throughout Europe.”
