Kempower and partner company Virta will soon deliver megawatt charging systems for electric trucks to Hedin Supercharge’s public charging hub located in Linköping, Sweden. Hedin Supercharge has been building public fast charging stations in various locations across Sweden since 2023, and the company’s vision is to become one of Sweden’s leading charging operators for electric vehicles, either cars or trucks.

The charging hub has been equipped with 1.2 megawatts of power with two triple cabinet Kempower Power Units, providing fast charging for both electric cars and trucks. Later this year, the station will be one of the first in the world to offer MCS charging with Kempower Mega Satellites.

Currently, the charging facility in Linköping consists of four CCS2 charging points with Kempower Liquid Cooled Satellites, offering up to 400 kW of charging power. Megawatt charging will be available by the end of 2024. The total charging capacity at Hedin Bil’s facilities in Linköping now includes charging spots for four trucks and seven passenger cars. 

“With the inauguration in Linköping, we are beginning a new chapter and starting to work more closely with the transport sector. Together with our existing and upcoming charging stations for passenger cars, we are now well-equipped for expansion both within and outside Sweden’s borders. We strongly believe that our offering of fast and easy charging will make it easier for all types of electrified transport in the future,” said Erik Aspholmer, CEO of Hedin Supercharge.

“It is fantastic to support Hedin in their pioneering role in offering MCS charging for trucks. The charging site is MCS-prepared and will be among the first in the world to offer MCS charging with our Kempower Mega Satellites. During the inauguration in Linköping, one can get acquainted with the future solution, a big sibling to our Kempower Satellite that is a familiar sight for many EV drivers in Sweden,” added Erik Kanerva, Sales Director of Northern Europe at Kempower
