Freight mobility company Einride announced the opening of its first Einride Smartcharger Station in Rosersberg, Sweden. It’s a charging station for heavy-duty trucks, built in cooperation with infrastructure developer and investor Polar Structure.
With a total of nine charging points available at launch, all with dynamic charging capacity, eight trucks are able to charge at the same time. The charging station is divided into two areas – five charging points at “Charge & Go” for fast charging and four charging points at “Charge & Park” for slow charging overnight.
Einride truck charging station: how it is conceived
Interactive lighting has been integrated to guide drivers, alerting them where available chargers are at the site as well as illustrating a vehicle’s charging status. The site’s driver’s lounge not only offers amenities such as restrooms, showers and a pantry but also serves as a place that drivers can easily stay up-to-date on charge status, remaining time, power output and performance through the screens inside the lounge or the smartphone app.
Additional Smartcharger Stations are under construction to meet the increasing demand for charging needs for heavy duty transport throughout Sweden, while smaller stations have already been established in other areas of Sweden.
“This Smartcharger Station opening is an important part of the transformation program we offer customers to enable a quick, easy and cost-effective switch to digital, electric heavy duty road freight. We are proud to make this investment together with Polar Structure to ensure a strong network of charging infrastructure is in place for our fleets as well as the public,” commented Robert Falck, CEO and Founder of Einride.
