Restaurant De Zingende Wielen

Restaurant De Zingende Wielen in the Dutch village of Den Oever has been a popular spot for all kinds of travellers for many years, and also makes room for innovation

At Restaurant De Zingende Wielen, PowerGo will install a 240-kilowatt fast charger, where two electric vehicles can charge simultaneously. But due to the major scarcity on the electricity grid in the Netherlands, this charging station could not be connected to the grid. PowerGo has found a solution by installing a battery on a small connection. This 700-kilowatt-hour battery will store sustainably generated energy. This way, the power grid is less overloaded at peak times, it can meet the needs at off-peak times, and it offers drivers of electric cars a very high charging rate. This solution is unique in the Netherlands. 

Fast charging with solar energy 

This way, charging at the restaurant can be done with 100% sustainable solar energy from Dutch soil. It is the ideal location for EV drivers travelling to and from the Dutch island of Texel, as well as for international traffic. Thereby, charging the electric vehicle can be combined with a drink and bite.
