Tesvolt Supplies Storage Systems For Europe’s Largest Electric Car Charging Park

News

The German manufacturer Tesvolt is supplying energy storage containers offering a total capacity of 2 megawatt hours (MWh) for Europe's largest electric car charging park at the Kreuz Hilden junction. Various companies will offer a total of 114 charging stations, including 40 V3 Tesla Superchargers and 22 fast charging stations from Dutch supplier Fastned. Every charging station will be supplied with 100-percent green power, sourced in part from a large rooftop photovoltaic installation above the charging park. The site will also host office buildings and a bistro with a vertical farming greenhouse. The Seed & Greet charging park will be operated by an organic baker from Hilden.

Around 235,000 cars pass through the Kreuz Hilden junction connecting the A3 and A46 motorways in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, every day. This is where the largest charging park project in Europe will come to fruition, set to cover 12,000 square metres. Motorists will be able to charge their electric vehicles at 62 fast charging stations from Tesla and Fastned boasting charging power of up to 350 kilowatts (kW). In addition, there are another eight public charging stations with a charging capacity of up to 22 kW and 44 charging stations for employees and tenants that will be operated by organic baker Roland Schüren — the owner of the charging park.

While waiting for their cars to charge, motorists can enjoy a coffee or a bite to eat at the bakery and café, where bread and pastries are baked fresh on-site. Or they can visit the vertical farming greenhouse, which covers 1,000 square metres over four storeys and supplies lettuce, strawberries and blueberries for use in the bakery. The bakery's waste heat is reused for the vertical farming project as well as for heating and hot water. The first phase of construction, including approximately half of the charging stations, is set to be completed in August.
