At Nordic EV Summit 2024, about to start on April 4, Kempower launches in Europe its Megawatt Charging System, company’s state-of-the-art electric truck charging solution for power ratings above 1 MW. Kempower’s Megawatt Charging System seeks to be part of the solution to the challenges of electrification of heavy-duty vehicles to meet the EU’s decarbonization goals. Kempower’s Megawatt Charging System is now open for orders in Europe.

According to the Finnish manufacturer, to bridge the market transition towards full megawatt charging adoption in the coming years, the current CCS2 power levels for heavy duty vehicles need to be increased in the short term. That’s why a dual strategy with MCS and High-Power CCS co-existing in the same truck charging ecosystem is a must to drive the zero-emission transition of road transport. 

Kempower’s megawatt charging system: some key features

The first version of Megawatt Charging Solution comes with a peak power of 1500A, 1.2 MW and a Kempower Mega Satellite ensuring maximum compatibility in the form of either high-power CCS plug or MCS plug. In Kempower’s Megawatt Charging System the MCS and CCS outputs can be in the same system for maximal flexibility, and the unused power can be distributed among several outputs through dynamic power sharing.

“We are experts in innovation. Through our workforce of more than 700 professionals, we have developed disruptive charging solutions that we have delivered to more than 50 countries,” said Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower.Trucks and large vehicles are currently responsible for around 25% of the CO2 emissions generated by road transport in the EU. This is a challenge that all players in our ecosystem, public and private, must face together, joining efforts and developing solutions to co-create a cleaner and quieter world. In this sense, we believe that our Megawatt Charging System provides a part of the answer to the EU’s decarbonization goals”.

“With MCS, we now position ourselves as a leading player in the transition to heavy-duty electric mobility, which is beneficial for the environment and for the quality of life of drivers, who, by driving electric trucks, eliminate noise and vibration from their daily working lives. MCS is contributing to the challenges of tomorrow, today”, he added.
