The first truck-compatible ev Charging point, connected in Venlo, marks the initial step in this partnership. Milence plans to extend its operations to other European countries in the first half of 2024. The ambitious goal is to build and operate 1,700 high-capacity public charging stations across Europe by 2027, including megawatt charging systems. These newly added charging stations will be accessible through the DKV Card +Charge.
“On our way to more climate-friendly mobility, charging solutions for the transport sector are a crucial lever and an indispensable part of the energy mix of the future. We are delighted to be setting the course for establishing truck-compatible supply solutions for e-mobility through our partnership with Milence,” says Sven Mehringer, Managing Director Energy & Vehicle Services at DKV Mobility.
“We are happy to give their customers access to our charging points and provide a seamless charging experience for truck drivers across Europe in the future as we continue to expand our network,” added Roel Vissers, Chief Commercial Officer at Milence.
Milence’s charging locations offer some of the highest power outputs available today, with plans for a swift transition to Megawatt Charging System (MCS) technology. This would mean that long-haul trucks with battery packages of 600 kWh and driving ranges of about 500 kilometers can be fully charged in just 30-45 minutes when MCS becomes available.
With approximately 564,000 public and semi-public EV charge points across Europe, DKV Mobility provides access to one of the largest European EV charge point networks. The collaboration with Milence further solidifies DKV Mobility’s commitment to advancing sustainable e-mobility solutions.
