The aim to create an ultra-fast charging network across Europe is making giant strides as it was announced that charging company Efacec has been chosen to supply and install 90 of its ultra-fast chargers in the Central Europe region.
A consortium led by Allegro, has contracted the Portuguese charging company to supply its HV350 ultra-fast charger, which is the first-ever certified cooled-cable 350kW DC fast charger that can provide charging speeds of up to 30km a minute, which is seven times faster than today’s 50kW DC chargers. It has the ability to charge 100km in less than five minutes, meaning it solves many charging anxiety issues faced by today’s EV owners and presents a viable solution to intercontinental travel.
Ângelo Ramalho, CEO of Efacec, said: “This new agreement with Allego is an important milestone for Efacec. Not only this agreement consolidates our position as Allego’s largest supplier of chargers for EV as it underlines Efacec’s investment on innovation and product development, which allows us to deliver the best and most modern products according to the specifications requested by our customers. Efacec as a brand continues to be consolidated in the main European markets. This is a key point to our development strategy, which points out Central and Northern Europe regions as strategic places in order to continuing a growth path in the electric mobility market”.
Currently Efacec’s chargers are present in 45 countries across continents including the United States, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania.
