Mitsui Fudosan and NEC plan to install 125 public charging stations at Tokyo Midtown, a high-rise development that includes offices, shopping, housing and hotels, beginning in December. This will be the largest number of EV chargers within a single facility in Japan.
Mitsui Fudosan will install NEC’s new wall-mounted AC chargers at 80% of Tokyo Midtown’s pay-by-the-hour parking spaces, as well as NEC’s wall-mounted charging controllers, which can perform user authentication for multiple chargers and centralized billing management.
NEC will operate the new chargers in cooperation with Japan Charge Network Co.
“Mitsui Fudosan promotes smart city development by taking on a wide variety of social issues ranging from environmental and energy projects to urban development. Following Tokyo Midtown, we will continue developing progressive initiatives that promote a low-carbon society through the introduction of large-scale charging infrastructure to major facilities,” said, Mitsui Fudosan’s Yasuhiro Nakamura.
“NEC focuses on solutions for society with a commitment to being a social value innovator. We will continue to contribute to a low-carbon society by deployment of innovative new EV and PHV charging infrastructure,” said NEC’s Yutaka Noguchi.
