Kempower, a Finnish manufacturer of DC fast charging solutions, has added hardware based on the Megawatt Charging System to its offerings. A Kempower spokesperson confirmed to Charged that the company’s MCS solution will be compliant with CharIN specifications.
The new Kempower Megawatt Charging System is based on the company’s existing technology, including its high-power satellite with MCS liquid-cooled charging plug and two 600 kW Kempower Power Units. The company plans to begin deliveries in Europe during the first quarter of 2024. The first delivered Kempower MCS solution will offer a total power level of 1.2 megawatts.
“Electric trucks are typically charged with a DC fast charger either overnight, at a warehouse destination, or on the move along highways. Larger EVs need larger power sources. Our megawatt charging solution serves all those use cases: overnight, destination and on-the-move charging,” said Jussi Vanhanen, Chief Market Officer of Kempower.
Vanhanen called MCS “the technology the world has been waiting for to help launch sustainable transportation into the future.” He added, “Vehicle charging will be the fastest drivers have ever experienced, and with Kempower’s full-service solutions, truck fleet owners can count on reliable charging when and where they need it.”
