Daimler Truck is going to build a demo electric truck charging park at its German facility in Worth-am-Rhein (we’ve been there some months ago for the Now&Next event). In the same production site, Daimler Truck will manufacture its BEV trucks, with the eActors on the forefront, as well as the FCEV trucks which are currently being developed.

The truck charging park as part of an integrated ecosystem

The aim of Daimler Truck is to make the Worth-am-Rhein site as an integrated ecosystem, «including comprehensive consultancy services and suitable charging infrastructure, to create the best possible way to welcome its truck customers to the world of e-mobility». The demo park will be located in close proximity to Daimler’s Application Information Center (BIC). In this way, truck customers will ben able to experience charging stations and charging concepts from different manufacturers in real-time operation with various technologies and also work with the experts on site to develop a charging solution that is suitable for their specific application.

According to the German manufacturer, the demonstration charging park will initially be equipped with five charging stations. In addition, it is planned to install a photovoltaic system on the roof of the charging park, including stationary battery storage facility, in order to additionally support the power supply to the charging stations. The park will be launched in the summer of this year.
