The first Charging hub will be  will be in Vockerode, Sachsen-Anhalt, on the A9 between Berlin and Leipzig, scheduled to open in July 2024, while the second site is near Hermsdorfer Kreuz in Thüringen, a crucial spot on the A4 between Poland and Frankfurt am Main, this site will be operational from September.

Each charging hub will be developed in phases:

  • Phase 1 Initial setup with four charging bays equipped with high-performance Combined Charging System (CCS) chargers, each capable of delivering up to 400kW of power.
  • Phase 2: Expansion with additional charging bays and the incorporation of Megawatt Charging System (MCS) technology for enhanced power and reliability.

Both hubs will offer amenities to enhance the driver’s rest and recharge experience. These facilities will be locally operated and not managed by Milence.

“Germany is a key country for freight transport in Europe, making it essential to have the right charging infrastructure to support the transition to electrification,” says Anja van Niersen, CEO of Milence. “Milence is pleased to contribute to this effort with two charging hubs that will strengthen the Scandinavian-Mediterranean corridor. Our hubs at Hermsdorfer Kreuz and Vockerode are significant steps towards electrifying Germany’s major transport routes and providing a reliable and accessible charging network for heavy-duty vehicles.”
