Siemens SICHARGE UC charging center is the core of the whole system developed by Siemens in order to make easier and smarter the management of an electric fleet of vehicles. The charging center, the actual core of the system, contains the charging controller and the DC converters. The cable connected frontend of the UC family can be installed close to the vehicle(s), making it possible to save space within the depot.
The system conceived by Siemens is fully modular and can be extended in time with several frontend devices. During the Volta Trucks roadshow, currently crossing Western Europe and soon headed to the US and Asia (read and watch our interview with Director of Business Development, Carla Detrieux, here) we had a chat with Giuseppe Amari, e-Mobility Vertical Sales, Infrastructure Division at Siemens, about the collaboration with the Swedish truck manufacturer as well as the main features of the SICHARGE UC charging centers, conceived for smart depots. Have a look.
