AMSTERDAM — Fastned, the European fast-charging company, and EVBox, a leading provider of flexible and scalable charging solutions for electric vehicles, have installed the first EVBox Troniq Modular High-Power charging station in the Netherlands on December 13, 2022. Roland van der Put (Head of Charging Technology at Fastned), Yannick Schuermans (Director of Operations & Analytics at Fastned), and Maurice van Riek (Chief Technology Officer at EVBox) were present at the ceremony.
The Most Powerful EVBox Charging Station to Date
The 400 kW charging station is now being piloted and available first-hand for all Fastned customers on its station in De Watering, The Netherlands, along the A8 near Oostzaan. With this configuration, EVBox Troniq Modular High-Power is one of the first 400 kW charging stations coming to the European market and has been developed to serve public areas with heavy traffic best. The high-power charging station can deliver 100 km of range in just three minutes if supported by the vehicle; alternatively, the charging power can also be dynamically shared by two vehicles, allocating 200 kW of energy to each vehicle.
Co-creation with Partners and End-users
Fastned and EVBox signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a non-exclusive partnership to further improve the product in terms of quality, user experience, serviceability, uptime, and data-driven charger monitoring. The initiative is part of EVBox’s Early Adopter Program with selected key partners, a co-creation program designed to improve the entire product journey from installation to end use. This iterative program allows for ongoing product and process improvements based on the feedback received by partners and users before its full commercialization.
Fastned, with ten years of experience in fast charging across six countries in Europe and with ambitious expansion plans, will contribute with its in-depth knowledge and experience in fast charging. EVBox has 13 years of experience with electric vehicle charging solutions and producing state-of-the-art EV chargers. Additionally, both parties will collect real-life customer feedback for improvement points of the piloted charging station. Fastned will continue working with leading charging station manufacturers to provide its customers with the best possible charging experience that matches Fastned’s leading customer friendliness and reliability standards.
