“Trucks and large vehicles are currently responsible for around 25% of the co2 emissions generated by road transport in the EU. This is a challenge that all players in our ecosystem, public and private, must face together, joining efforts and developing solutions to co-create a cleaner and quieter world. In this sense, we believe that our Megawatt Charging System provides a part of the answer to the EU’s decarbonisation goals,” says Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower. 

The Megawatt Charging System features cutting-edge technology, offering a peak power of 1.2 MW and compatibility with high-power CCS and MCS plugs through Kempower Mega Satellite integration. This flexibility allows for adaptability and efficient power distribution, with dynamic power sharing optimising charging curves and minimising charging times.

Recognising the need for increased power levels in heavy-duty vehicle charging scenarios, Kempower advocates for a dual strategy integrating MCS and High-Power CCS within the same charging ecosystem. This approach facilitates the transition to zero-emission road transport and addresses grid limitations while ensuring cost efficiency for charge point operators.

With an eye toward the future, Kempower is poised to meet the growing demand for electric trucks, as projected by industry reports indicating a substantial increase in zero-emission vehicle sales by 2040. Ristimäki underscores Kempower’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, positioning the company as a key player in the transition to heavy-duty electric mobility.

“We are experts in innovation. Through our workforce of more than 700 professionals, we have developed disruptive charging solutions that we have delivered to more than 50 countries,” adds Ristimäki. “We believe that those of us who today develop the future of sustainable mobility in line with decarbonization goals will have competitive advantages in the sector in the mid and long term. With MCS, we now position ourselves as a leading player in the transition to heavy-duty electric mobility, which is beneficial for the environment and for the quality of life of drivers, who, by driving electric trucks, eliminate noise and vibration from their daily working lives. MCS is contributing to the challenges of tomorrow, today.”
