Allego and HEM reduce loading time for electric cars between Berlin and Dresden
In cooperation with the charging infrastructure provider Allego, Deutsche Tamoil opens the first publicly accessible high-power charging station (HPC) at a HEM petrol station in Germany. The two partners thus give electric vehicle users access to an ultra-fast charging station with an output of up to 350 kilowatts (kW). The charging station is located on the premises of the HEM station on LPG-Straße in Lübbenau / Spreewald, directly on the Autobahn 13 between Berlin and Dresden. Long charging breaks for electric cars are now a thing of the past on this route. Five other HPC charging stations are already in preparation.
In June 2018, Deutsche Tamoil put the first quick charging stations into operation and equipped five percent of its gas station network. Instead of focusing on metropolitan areas, a good half of the charging stations are located outside of large cities and densely populated areas. “We are also increasingly focusing on expansion in rural areas in Germany in order to be able to guarantee the opportunities and offers for end consumers on a large scale. We at HEM are service providers for the mobility of people and would like to continue to be this for the customers who choose e-mobility in the future”, explains Yvonne Moldenhauer, district manager of Deutsche Tamoil GmbH. In 2018, small towns such as the Mecklenburg Dorf in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Schleiz in Thuringia or Übersee in Bavaria equipped HEM petrol stations with state-of-the-art columns with a charging capacity of up to 50 kW.
