Fastned Goes To Denmark – CleanTechnica

Fastned, one of many premier EV quick charging networks on this planet (however simply working in Europe), is increasing its community into Denmark.

The Dutch firm has gained a young to construct three superfast charging stations — energy output of 400 kW per charger. That’s additionally the variety of EV charging stations Fastned utilized to Vejdirektoratet to offer.

“The brand new quick charging stations will likely be situated in strategic areas alongside high-traffic nationwide street community and on touristic routes, with a complete of 24 chargers of 400 kW,” Fastned writes. Naturally. The municipalities are Helsingør, Grevinge, and Langeskov Syd. Two of them will open by the tip of 2023 and one will open in 2024.

It shocked me, however this entrance into Denmark marks Fastned’s foray into Scandinavia. The corporate already has EV charging stations in six different international locations: its house base of the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Belgium, France, and Switzerland. Denmark would be the seventh.

“Getting into the Danish market is a giant achievement for Fastned, and can assist us with our aim to construct 1,000 quick charging stations throughout Europe by 2030. We construct stations the place drivers can depend on dependable charging and have the perfect charging expertise. We’re bringing this strategy to Denmark, the seventh nation in our community. Our workforce is working laborious to broaden our community to extra European international locations, to assist increasingly folks make the change to electrical driving and therefore speed up the transition to fossil fuel-free mobility,” Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned, stated.

In complete, Denmark had put out a young for 9 areas. Fastned picked the three that match its goal parameters (principally, a variety of visitors/utilization).

Fastned additionally offered some extra data on the three stations themselves:

  • “With 4 chargers, Helsingør will enable drivers to cost earlier than they head to Sweden, on the Helsingør-Helsingborg ferry, an vital European journey route within the Nordics.”
  • “Grevinge station will even have 4 chargers, catering for drivers between Copenhagen and Aarhus.” (Curiously, I additionally simply wrote a narrative yesterday about Aarhus ordering 56 electrical buses from Solaris.)
  • “The third and largest location, Langeskov Syd, can have a complete of 16 chargers, and will likely be a part of a significant charging hub alongside the E20, the place the well-known and lengthy Nice Belt and the New Little Belt bridges join continental Europe to Sjælland island, the place Copenhagen is situated. Grevinge and Helsingør will likely be constructed by the tip of 2023, whereas Langeskov Syd will likely be in operation by the tip of August 2024.”

Congratulations to Fastned. For another latest tales on the Dutch EV quick charging chief, see:
