Next year, PowerGo will realize charging points for electric cars at locations across the Danish municipality of Ikast-Brande. This concerns 69 AC charging stations, each with two charging points. Three fast charging stations of 50 kilowatt, each with two charging points, will also be installed. In addition, four 150 kilowatt fast charging outlets will be installed.
At the beginning of November, it was announced that PowerGo won three tenders with which PowerGo will install charging points in the Danish municipalities of Vejle, Vejen and Gladsaxe. The municipality of Ikast-Brande has also selected PowerGo as Charge Point Operator (CPO) based on a tender.
Charging in public locations
The fast chargers of 50 kilowatt will be installed at a large and central parking lot, at the town hall and at a school. The other four fast charging points of 150 kilowatts will be placed close to the highway ‘Herningmotorvejen’. The AC chargers will be placed at several large municipal institutions and public parking lots. All charging stations will be publicly accessible at all locations.
Kasper Pauli Pedersen, chairman of the Climate, Nature and Sustainability committee at the municipality of Ikast-Brande, says: “The share of electric cars in the municipality of Ikast-Brande is increasing, just like nationally, and it is therefore fantastic that we are having charging stations installed in so many places throughout the municipality for the benefit of the energy transition during 2023. As part of the tender, we aimed to cover both large and small cities with regard to the installation of charging stations.”
Ivo van Dam, CTO of PowerGo: “We have the charging stations in stock and therefore expect a rapid rollout. Of course, this does depend on how quickly the various utilities can provide the required power. PowerGo is known for providing good, easily accessible charging solutions that can meet the users’ expectations. Together with Spirii we look forward to welcoming new users to the municipality of Ikast-Brande.”
As part of the agreement with the international CPO PowerGo, Spirii is responsible for the day-to-day operation and support of the charging infrastructure. Kemp & Lauridsen is responsible for the installation of the charging stations.
