Performance Team and Prologis launch new electric truck charging depot in LA

California-headquartered warehousing and distribution provider Performance Team (a Maersk company) and California-headquartered logistics real estate leasing company Prologis have opened a 9 MW EV truck charging depot in Los Angeles. 

The Denker depot joins Performance Team’s other Southern California facilities in Santa Fe Springs and Commerce, which are also equipped with Prologis Mobility charging infrastructure and provide 4 MW of charging capacity.

The new depot is located near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. It can simultaneously charge 96 heavy-duty trucks. Performance Team will use the facility for its fleet of Volvo VNR Electric trucks, each of which has a range of 240 miles.

Rather than waiting up to two years for a grid upgrade, the company, in conjunction with Mainspring Energy, built a microgrid that uses 2.75 MW of fuel-flexible, hydrogen-ready linear generators along with 18 MWh of batteries.

“To bring the depot online quickly we delivered an innovative on-demand charging solution as an interim power connection measure,” said Henrik Holland, Global Head of Prologis Mobility.
