Right here is an interesting report from the subject in Norway, where Bjørn Nyland visits the Shell Nebbenes Vest gasoline station to locate out its electrifying transformation.
It’s truly 1 of the two Shell stations (the 2nd is Shell Klett) that recently had been upgraded with Kempower S-Collection rapidly chargers, operated by Recharge community (one particular of the biggest in the Nordics).
As we can see, Shell not only installs numerous charging stalls on the facet of the station, but practically replaced some gasoline pumps with the charging stalls less than the roof. This is what is taking place in the marketplace exactly where BEV sales exceed 70% share.
It’s terrific to see that quick chargers are already acquiring some of the prime spots at gas stations. That raises benefit as people stalls are roofed and closer to the store.
In addition, the rapid chargers are acquiring much better and better. The video features a presentation of the Kempower S-Sequence charging technique that has modular chargers (ability electronics) put together with a number of satellite charging posts (up to 8 double satellite charging posts) with the dynamic energy distribution (from 40 to 480 kW for every submit and up to 1,000 V).
The Kempower charging stalls are really amazing as they have 7” contact screen, which not only shows the electric power output and point out of charge, but also have a QR code that can be scanned to see all the stats on the smartphone. The user can then go to the shop and nonetheless have obtain to all the information, such as a chart of the total charging session. Another very good issue is the somewhat extended cable.
We have to concur with Bjørn Nyland (who is sponsored by Kempower) that this variety of charger is very pleasant, and that numerous other producers rest on their laurels, when there are nevertheless things to make the charging practical experience greater.
