The Mobile High Power Charger is the world’s most powerful mobile fast charging system in the form of a truck trailer. Ten e-vehicles can charge up to 320 kilowatts each in a few minutes at the two megawatt-hour HPC charging trucks. The trucks have a total capacity of 3.2 megawatts when all charging points are charging simultaneously at full power. This corresponds to the average output of about 3,200 single-family homes. Considering the availability of grid connections, which are often only limited, it is a unique opportunity to provide high charging capacities for a limited period of time and in a flexible location.
The innovative quick-charging trailers were put into operation at the end of 2019 on the race track in Barcelona. Just one year from the idea to the successful implementation of the project is a remarkable acheivement. Thomas Speidel, managing partner of ADS-TEC is very pleased and emphasises the outstanding performance of his team: “It was already an extraordinary and enormous challenge to accommodate this energy and power on a standard truck format while maintaining the permissible gross vehicle weight.”
The mobile fast charging system is currently in use at various events throughout Europe. The compact and extremely flexible concept enables quick assembly and disassembly directly at the place of use. The truck and trailer unit have been optimised to ensure transportation can be carried out without heavy loads and in compliance with the 40-tonne total weight regulation.
