(TotalEnergies, 21.Nov.2023) — TotalEnergies announced the launch of an in-depot electric truck charging service today at the SOLUTRANS road and urban transportation trade show. With this new solution, TotalEnergies will install and supervise customized charging infrastructure adapted to transporters’ needs to support their transition to electric mobility.
Customized Service Adapted to Transporters’ Needs In Depots…
Now that electric trucks have sufficient driving range to handle urban and regional deliveries (150 to 500 kilometers per day), TotalEnergies has developed an in-depot charging service that comprises the installation and supervision of charge points that offer an efficient, tailored response to transporters’ specific needs. The solution includes:
- Charge points, which optimize the time trucks are parked in the depot (generally 12 hours) to effectively recharge the battery to 100%.
- Ultra-Fast charge points (up to 400 kW) for extra charging needs.
In an end-to-end approach, TotalEnergies will work with customers to determine the size of charging infrastructure needed for their fleets, install the charge points and supply green electricity, provide management and supervision tools along with a smart charging solution to optimize fleet charging, and offer 24/7 customer support.
… And On Europe’s Road Corridors
To serve transporters’ charging needs outside their depots, TotalEnergies will also install charge points along Europe’s road corridors starting in 2024. These will include high power charge points (HPC1) during mandatory breaks on long trips and slow charge points at rest areas to charge while drivers are sleeping.
“In order to decarbonize road transportation on a large scale, is critical to develop infrastructure and provide transporters with low-carbon solutions. Backed by our close ties with the transport sector and our strong position in electric mobility in Europe, TotalEnergies has developed a solution tailored to transporters’ needs to support them in their fleet management and energy transition,” said Mathieu Soulas, Senior Vice President New Mobilities & Marketing at TotalEnergies.
