IONITY opens an ultra-fast power charging facility with Cepsa in Murcia

13 Feb 2020

    • The station, located in Puerto Lumbreras (Murcia), has two 350 kW High Power Chargers 
    • Significant reduction in charging times for current and future EVs
    • Cepsa will supply 100% renewable electricity to these facilities 
As a result of the alliance with Cepsa, IONITY has launched a high-power charging station in Murcia. Located in Puerto Lumbreras (Murcia), the new site is equipped with 2 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 2 high power chargers, the IONITY station is among the fastest in Spain. IONITY has prepared the station for 4 additional high-power chargers that can be added depending on the demand. Cepsa will supply 100% renewable energy to these facilities.

In this way, IONITY continues the growth project of its European network. The aim is to make long distance EV travel a reality. Puerto Lumbreras is also one of 340 high power 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.

In October of last year, IONITY installed its first four high power charging points on the Iberian Peninsula, in the town of Pallejà (Barcelona). Also, throughout 2020, this alliance intends to build more than twenty high power recharging stations in Spain and Portugal.

Cepsa currently has an extensive network of close to 1,800 service stations in Spain and Portugal, focused on offering a clear model of customer orientation, innovation, added value, safety and loyalty. In addition to different energy solutions for mobility, Cepsa also offers many products and services in its Service Stations.
