The Milence joint venture has announced the intention to open an electric truck charging hub in Bagnolo San Vito, in the province of Mantua, Northern Italy. The charging hub in Bagnolo San Vito is located 40 km south of Verona, near the A22 Autostrada del Brennero and along the Scandinavia-Mediterranean corridor. This is a key north-south axis for the European economy. The A22 is key highway in Italy that connects the Po Valley (a significant industrial and agricultural area), the city of Modena, and the Autostrada A1 to Austria.

Milence’s projects headed to Italy

Similarly to other projects developed by Milence, the charging hub is being developed in phases. The initial phase includes four Combined Charging System (CCS) chargers, powering five bays with up to 400kW of power per bay. The next phase of development will include additional bays with Megawatt Charging System (MCS) chargers as the technology becomes available.

“Within two years, Milence has successfully started the development of multiple charging hubs along key routes in line with its mission to support the transition to sustainable transport across Europe. This hub is the perfect location to kick-off our network roll-out in Italy, and will become a key node along the north-south transport corridor that is vital for European commerce.  The future of electric transport is now beginning in Italy as well”, commented Anja Niersen, CEO of Milence.
