Milence will open its second charging hub in the Netherlands, precisely in Zwolle, by the end of the current year. The JV for e-truck high-power infrastructure located the very first charging hub right in the Netherlands, in Venlo. This hub is already up and running, as CEO Anja van Niersen told us a few months ago.

The Zwolle hub will provide an easy and reliable charging experience for all battery-electric heavy-duty trucks, regardless of brand. Business park Hessenpoort, a major logistics hub in Zwolle, is home to a variety of businesses, from logistics and distribution centers to manufacturing plants and service providers. Strategically located near the A28 and A50 highways the new hub is a key node on the North Sea/Baltic corridor and connects major seaports such as Rotterdam and Hamburg.

Milence in the Netherlands: another project to be developed in different phases

Similarly to other projects shared by Milence, the hub will be developed in two different stages. The first phase will include four Combined Charging System (CCS) chargers, powering eight charging bays. Milence plans a swift transition to Megawatt Charging System (MCS) technology with the hub, including one MCS charger powering two charging bays, as soon as the technology is available. The second phase will expand the facility with additional MCS chargers and up to sixteen charging bays. Furthermore, additional sanitary facilities and vending machines will be added.

“This is another important milestone in our mission to create a comprehensive charging network throughout Europe. With the already operational charging hub in Venlo and the recent opening of the hub in Port of Antwerp-Bruges, the network expansion in the Benelux region will provide a robust support to logistics companies and shippers and will enable the operation of multiple electric routes, thereby helping these businesses achieve their sustainability goals”, commented Milence CEO Anja van Niersen.
