Polish firm to deliver 274 charging stations to Paris

PARIS, January 19, 2021

Ekoenergetyka-Polska, a Polish manufacturer, has won a contract to deliver 274 chargers for electric buses with a total capacity of 24.5 MW to Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) in France.
Ekoenergetyka-Polska will deliver 274 devices of 90 kW each to the Seine. The Polish manufacturer runs a tailor-made project, as specified by RATP.  Charging stations for two Parisian depots - Center Bus de Lilas and Pleyel - will be available in three configurations.

The first of them, standard, plug-in type, is equipped with a CCS Combo 2 connector. The second is a charger with a satellite to charge buses parked in the parts of the depot with limited space. The third one is equipped with a dedicated cable reel that allows to lower the cable from the ceiling to the bus socket.

One of the greatest advantages of the solutions designed by Ekoenergetyka is their customization. “We adapt our charging stations to specific customer requirements, both technically and visually. We are preparing a modern charging infrastructure for electric buses, which will be located in Paris, in accordance with the requirements of RATP,” said Maciej Wojeński, Vice-President of the Management Board, Ekoenergetyka-Polska.

This is the second contract of the French operator for the Polish leader of the emobility market. Already in 2018, both entities signed a contract for the supply of charging stations to the most populous region of the country, Île-de-France. Ekoenergetyka has delivered 96 charging stations with a capacity of 60 and 100 kW to Paris.

Ekoenergetyka’s contract is part of the ambitious plan of the regional transport authority Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM) to eliminate all diesel buses. The French operator declared in 2014 a technological and environmental change that will eliminate diesel buses from the fleet and replace them with zero emission vehicles by 2025. These measures aim to reduce the emissions generated by the RATP fleet by 50%. – TradeArabia News Service
