Fortum Charged and Drive

Reindeer are far from the only way to get around Lapland these days. The Fortum Charge & Drive network, which operates in Norway, Sweden and Finland, will cooperate with Renault to install seven new charging units in the northern region of Finland. The new 22 kW Level 2 chargers will be located along typical tourist routes between Finland and Norway.

Fortum’s network in the Nordic countries currently consists of over 450 public chargers, including 200 DC fast chargers.

“We expect that many of our customers want to drive EVs from Norway to Finland, and through this expansion in the charging network, we can offer a convenient and safe journey,” says Anders Gadsbøll, Managing Director, Renault Norway.
