Heliox, a Netherlands-based manufacturer of fast-charging infrastructure for electric buses and other heavy-duty EVs, has secured a “substantial” new investment from Waterland Private Equity Investments.
Heliox, founded in 2009 with roots in electronics giant Philips, developed one of the first CCS plug-in chargers for electric buses in 2013. The company offers overnight and mobile charging systems with power levels from 25 to 150 kW, and opportunity charging systems with power levels up to 600 kW. Heliox’s systems support all standardized interfaces, including CCS, Bus-up and Inverted Pantograph. They have been installed in over 20 countries.
“Waterland is a long-term investor in the transition to sustainable energy,” said Wouter Roduner, Partner at Waterland Private Equity Investments. “Heliox is well-positioned to confirm its emerging leadership in the roll-out of charging infrastructure for buses, trucks and heavy-duty vehicles.”
“This new step requires further integration of energy management possibilities, optimization of communication functions and additional services propelling the revolution towards zero-emission transport,” said Heliox co-founder Mark Smidt.
