Vattenfall has selected Alfen as a partner for its smart electric vehicles (EVs) charging infrastructure projects in Noord-Brabant and Limburg provinces.

Alfen will supply smart charging infrastructure for electric driving in the two municipalities.

This follows the provinces Noord-Brabant and Limburg assigning Vattenfall to deploy and exploit the charging stations.
 
The EV chargers will be installed over a period of two years. During this period, the first 2,000 Alfen Twin charging stations will be commissioned.

Noord-Brabant and Limburg will be supplied with 4,000 charge points.

The Alfen Twin is designed for the urban environment with a high usage volume and is suitable for every semi-public or public space. The charging station has a double socket in a robust and vandal-proof steel casing with curved surface so no litter or debris can accumulate on top of the charging station, according to a statement.

The charge point is suited for all-electric vehicles and charging cables.
 
The projects enables the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Limburg and the participating municipalities to facilitate the ever-increasing demand for charge points as a result of the growing number of EVs.
 
Pieter van Ommeren, director of e-mobility at Vattenfall, says: “Fossil-free living within one generation, that is our mission. That is why we are fully committed to electric driving. We make sure that electric drivers can easily charge their vehicles at an affordable price. The Alfen charge points have been a household name on the streets for years and have certainly proven to be reliable. With its smart charging stations, Alfen is the right partner that fully supports our ambition.”

Jan-Anne Hoekstra, Commercial Director EV Charging Equipment at Alfen adds: “Vattenfall is a valued partner that we have collaborated with for years. We are proud that together we can contribute to the objectives of the provinces Noord-Brabant and Limburg. With the installation of our smart and reliable charging stations we ensure that EV drivers in the south of the Netherlands can safely and optimally charge their vehicles. This project contributes to the ambition of the Netherlands to have approximately 2 million charge points by 2030.”
