Dutch charging company Fastned has unveiled its new generation of fast charging stations. At the new stations electric vehicles can charge at up to 350 kW, that is up to 100 times faster than at home. Thanks to their modular design, the new stations can also be easily extended. The first 350 kW station at service area De Watering is located on the A8 highway near Amsterdam.
The new charging station is the result of a partnership with technology group ABB, who developed the fast chargers. With the opening of this station, ABB and Fastned have a global first. The new fast chargers at the station have a capacity of up to 350 kW and are the world’s first ever fast chargers to be CE certified by an independent party, and approved for consumer use.
The higher charging speed means EVs can charge up to 500 km in 15 minutes. In addition to the charging technology, the station design is also completely new. An iconic and recognisable design with a roof of glass-glass solar panels and sustainable wood. The new station also has a higher clearance, so it is even more visible to electric drivers and can accomodate larger electric vehicles.
