The Dutch fast charging company Fastned and Tesla have opened Germany’s largest fast charging hub. At the Ladepark Kreuz Hilden station, 8 cars can charge simultaneously with up to 300 kW, allowing electric cars to add up to 300 km of range in just 15 minutes.
The Fastned station is powered by energy from the sun and wind, generated partly by the station’s large solar roof. The station is based close to the city of Düsseldorf.
Michiel Langezaal, CEO Fastned, says: “In order to power the exponentially growing number of electric vehicles, we need a lot of big fast charging stations. I call upon landowners that share this vision to contact us, so we can join forces and see if we can realise a Fastned station on their site. Together we will build the infrastructure of the future!”
Fastned has 125 fast charging stations in the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and Belgium. All stations are open to the public 24/7.
