The facility offers six public charging points for heavy-duty lorries, with each bay providing up to 360kW of power.
There is room for adding more bays (even 1.0MW).
Apart from the bays, the facility offers a fenced, CCTV parking lot for about 40 trucks. The station also comprises amenities (showers, toilets, and food & drinks).
Within one year, it will be possible to tank hydrogen at the station (720 kg of capacity, one bay, 15 trucks/day).
"The station's opening at exactly the right place, in terms of both timing and location. Serial production of electric heavy goods vehicles is up and running, and vehicles have been ordered by actors with a lot of traffic at the port. By the end of the year, electric heavy trucks will be a common sight in the port, and it will just keep on growing from there. So, this station comes at just the right time - the transition is taking place here and now, and as far as the port is concerned we're delighted to be able to work with Circle K to provide the necessary infrastructure," Elvir Dzanic, the Gothenburg Port Authority's CEO, commented.
Lennart Olsson, Senior Manager Pricing at Circle K Sweden, also said, "The station is a magnificent flagship and a real milestone along the way to a future of greener transport operations. We're incredibly happy and proud to be leading the way on this journey and of what we've achieved, such as the collaboration with the port. The station's strategic location and smart structure mean that we're well-prepared for the market's future needs for different fuels. This station has the potential to become an important hub in the transition."
