PowerGo and Basic-Fit have entered into a partnership to realize charging solutions at Basic-Fit’s locations. This involves approximately 450 possible locations, spread across the Netherlands and Belgium. PowerGo will place regular and fast chargers, where drivers of electric cars can charge with 100% green energy.
PowerGo has become Basic-Fit’s preferred Charge Point Operator (CPO) in the Netherlands and Belgium. In Belgium, the first location has already been equipped with charging points at Basic-Fit Brussels Jette. This location will be extended with fast chargers. In the Netherlands, PowerGo has started the realization of charging points at Basic-Fit Toolenburg in Hoofddorp, where several fast chargers are being installed. PowerGo is waiting for the grid connection to be expanded before the chargers can be put into use.
Smart mix of chargers
”Thanks to a smart mix of different types of charging stations, a customer can leave with a full battery after a visit to the gym,” says Ivo van Dam, Chief Technology Officer of PowerGo. ”We expect a rapid rollout, and expect to provide at least 25 more locations with chargers this year.”
PowerGo is the subsidiary of PowerField, a Dutch developer of solar parks. PowerGo’s charging stations are powered by 100% sustainable solar energy, sourced from Dutch soil. ”Sustainability is an important factor in Basic-Fit’s success. We have a broad approach to sustainability and care for the environment,” said Gerard van Medevoort, International Energy Manager of Basic-Fit. ”By offering the possibility of charging the electric car with green electricity at Basic-Fit, we give our customers an extra service and contribute to a more sustainable world.”
Ivo van Dam: ”We look forward to offering drivers of electric cars at Basic-Fit a sustainable and user-friendly solution. The cooperation with Basic-Fit is a big step in PowerGo’s ambition to become a major CPO in Europe, with which we will make an important contribution to the rollout of a European charging network.”
