Report this content

Car parks in connection to the retail chains famila and Combi in Germany, will be equipped with 200 fast-charging stations from Vattenfall InCharge for electric vehicles.

By 2025, between one and five public and fast-charging stations with up to ten charging points will be installed at around 200 customer car parks that are part of the Bünting Group in Northwestern Germany. The fast-charging infrastructure will have a capacity of up to 180 kW and at locations with high demand the fast chargers will have a capacity of up to 360 kW.

The car parks are located by the Bünting Group stores, famila and Combi. Vattenfall is responsible for the planning, construction and operation of the stations. The charging stations all supply electricity from fossil free sources.

"By partnering with the Bünting Group, we are enabling fast charging throughout the northwest German region, while creating a bridge to our market in the Netherlands. Together, we aim not only to meet today's demand, but also to build charging infrastructure with foresight, provide security and thus create the conditions for further electrification of individual transport," says Tomas Björnsson, Vice President Business Unit E-mobility at Vattenfall.

"With Vattenfall, we have found a partner with whom we can further expand e-mobility and thus take another step towards sustainability," says Robert Meyer, Head of Construction and Facility Management at the Bünting Group.
