ESWE Verkehr Wiesbaden, a German fleet-building project for 56 Mercedes-Benz eCitaro electric buses, has selected the fleet charging specialist Heliox to provide the charging infrastructure as well as the electrical installation and medium voltage grid connection. The contract covers full installation and service: charging stations, medium voltage connection and a full service and maintenance contract. The Heliox charging infrastructure will be compatible with the Fleet management system used, which facilitates monitoring of buses and the charging infrastructure in order to enable smart charge management. The construction will begin at the end of the year with first chargers ready in 2020. The charging infrastructure will be fully operational by 2021.
“We are delighted that the close cooperation with ” Daimler Buses ” is paying off. And we are fortunate to be able to work together with partners who are doing their utmost to make this possible. From Heliox point of view, we are looking forward to make the implementation work and will further proof the cost effectiveness of the Overnight Charging Solution, “said Koen van Haperen, Director Strategic Accounts at Heliox.
