High power charging for trucks in long-distance operation (HoLa)
The project, which is led by Fraunhofer ISI and supported by the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry), is one of three innovation clusters for climate-friendly truck drive technologies recently set up by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. In concrete terms, two high power charging points using the Megawatt Charging System will be installed at each of four locations in the HoLa project and tested under real logistics operating conditions. These charging points will support the use of this new system in everyday operations, and form the basis for large-scale expansion of the technology. 13 partners from research and industry, including four truck manufacturers, are involved in the project.
