Foto - aktualita

13-th  November 2013 was opened  before  Tesco Šaľa  and putted  into operation the first EV charging station for electric cars. It is the third EV charging station in Slovakia,   the first two are located in the capital.

Producer of a charging station is the Japanese  Nissan Motor  and for the European market this technology adjusts the French company DBT-CEV. Creator of the idea to build this charging station is a company ELMARK PLUS Ltd. who is exclusive distributor and service organization for the charging station  DBT CEV-Slovakia, Czech Republic and Poland.

The installed station has  49kW and works on industry standard CHAdeMO (Charge de Move) which is currently used in most sold and driven EVs, including the best-selling electric Nissan Leaf. The station can charge the electric car to 80% of battery capacity for about 25 minutes (24kWh battery capacity). Shortening the charging time on tens of minutes opens up new possibilities for the use of electric vehicles and electric mobility from urban type traffic to suburban and interurban.

The investor of the project in amount of 30 000 EUR is  the company ELMARK PLUS Ltd., which also by  this step  wants to contribute  the development of e-mobility in Slovakia. The charging station is freely accessible to 31-st  December 2014 and will be charging electromobiles for free.

The huge investment of charging construction made Tesco Stores SR, which offered also the parking area, electrical connection and reserved capacity for the charging  station. The act of commissioning took place not in the best weather, but the participation of about 50 invited guests were not affected. Between the participants were representatives of municipality,  Ministry of Economy, Slovak Association for electromobility and many other distinguished guests.

The honor to cut the ribbon had the mayor of  Šaľa MUDr Alföldi, director of operation Tesco Šaľa Juraj Činčura and CEO of ELMARK PLUS Ltd.  Ing. Ivan Wolf. Subsequently the participants could see a preview of the charging under the baton  of  Sales Director ELMARK PLUS Ltd.  Ing. Andrej Novomeský.

After the official opening and demonstration of charging station the guests took a ride on Nissan Leaf EVs. The first "customers" of charging stations have become e-mobile guests Peter Ševce  representant of the Peugeot iOn (E. Slovakia) and Vladimir Haus on Nissan Leaf (Auto Impex Bratislava).

Also by this project we created a new image of  the Slovak electromobility.
