Swiss energy network operator Primeo Energie and Alpiq E-Mobility have opened their first highway charging stations in Switzerland on the A2 motorway in Inseli and Chilchbuehl featuring electric vehicle chargers, battery energy storage and an energy management solution from technology leader ABB. The launch represents the first of twenty highway charging sites planned and features ABB’s complete infrastructure solution, which is built around its Terra High Power and regular Terra DC fast chargers at the core.

The end to end solution from ABB is enabling a new business model for Primeo Energie and Alpiq E-Mobility within the high growth e-mobility sector, making it easier to manage costs in real-time with intelligent energy management solutions and ensuring drivers enjoy a reliable and consistently priced service.

The rest areas in Inseli and Chilchbuehl are equipped with a 50 kW Terra 54 charger which provides regular DC fast charging capabilities and is a cornerstone in the market leading ABB charging portfolio. This solution supports simultaneous charging of two cars; one with DC fast charging and another vehicle with slower AC charging.

Additionally, a 350kW high power DC charger in a modular setup with two charging posts for two additional electric vehicles is capable of providing most vehicles up to 200km of range in as little as 8 minutes. Dynamic power sharing between the charging posts enables flexibility to charge higher power vehicles, such as trucks or buses quickly without the need for dedicated charging infrastructure.

Switzerland’s Federal Roads Office is promoting the development of a nationwide charging network by electrifying approximately 100 motorway rest areas which it operates throughout Switzerland over the next few years. Many of these locations have little or no power supply, and with charging points served by different utilities, each can have its own specific cost structures and peak demand charges.
