IONITY opens its first ultra-fast power charging facility with Cepsa in Spain
23 Oct 2019
- The station, located in Pallejà (Barcelona), has four 350 kW High Power Chargers
- Significant reduction in charging times for current and future EVs
Cepsa will supply 100% renewable electricity to these facilities
In conjunction with Cepsa, IONITY has launched its first high-power charging station in Spain. Located in Pallejà (Barcelona), the new site is equipped with 4 high power charging points each with a capacity of 350 kW. These chargers are compatible with the European standard Combined Charging System (CCS) and reduce charging times for current and future EVs significantly.
Offering 1,2 Mega Watt of power for the 4 high power chargers, the IONITY station is among the fastest in Spain. IONITY has prepared the station for 2 additional high-power chargers that can be added depending on the demand. Cepsa will supply 100% renewable energy to these facilities.
This first station in Spain is the latest chapter in the expansion of IONITY’s pan-European charging network. The objective is to make long distance EV travel a reality. Pallejà is also one of 340 ultra-fast charging stations being deployed within the Europe-E project, covering main routes across 13 EU Member States and along all 9 TEN-T Core Network Corridors and the Core Network. The EUROP-E project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
In July 2018, Cepsa signed a collaboration agreement with IONITY, the European high-performance charging network formed by the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, for the installation of electric charging points at its service stations in Spain and Portugal.
Cepsa currently has an extensive network of close to 1,800 service stations in Spain and Portugal. The Cepsa management team is focused on offering a clear model of customer orientation, innovation, added value, safety and loyalty. Cepsa sells top quality fuels at its Service Stations, and also offers many other products and services.
