The first Swiss high-performance fast charger for electric vehicles is in place!
Since a few days the first GOFAST site, the first “Supercharger for all” is in place! With the collaboration with AET, this location sets a milestone for fast charging of electric vehicles: the ultra-modern charging station, Swiss made by EVTEC, allows a charging power of up to 150kW DC dynamically available on CHAdeMO and COMBO plugs. Additionally, two Type2 connections deliver up to 60kW AC.
The GOFAST was inaugurated at the entrance to the tunnel Gotthard in Switzerland, particularly in the part of the Canton Ticino, in the Service Area Gotthard Sud Stalvedro, shortly before the southern entrance to the tunnel.
The technology was developed entirely by the Swiss company EVTEC; the needed energy, called tiacqua, comes from renewable sources, certified and sustainable, ensuring that refilling, the electricity comes from the region and from zero emissions sources.
The EVTEC espresso&charge (100 km of range in only 10 minutes - the time to take an Espresso) provides up to 150 kW DC + 60 kW AC and features all fast charging standards of all European, Asian and American car manufacturers. Therefore it is ready for current and next generation vehicles. Espresso&charge offers different payment- and access-systems and is an ideal fit for places with high traffic volume such as motorway service areas or for fleet maintenance applications
