Shell and Ionity have launched charging stations for electric cars with a capacity of up to 350 kW at the service areas of MOP Olsze Wschód and Olsze Zachód near the A1 motorway, Shell reported. More such stations are planned to be opened in the next few weeks. Each of them will offer at least 2 charging points and can be expanded with more. Ionity stations in Poland are fully powered by green energy.
“Thanks to the cooperation with Ionity, our technological partner, the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA), Gdańsk Transport Company and the Office of Technical Inspection (UDT), Shell introduces a pioneering solution on our market, offering drivers of a 350 kW charger. They will be compatible with both existing and future electric vehicles equipped with the European CCS charging standard, charging the vehicle with the maximum power available to it. (…) ”said Monika Kielak-Łokietek, head of Shell Mobility Sales & Network at Shell Polska, quoted in the release.
“Ionita’s goal is to make it possible for electric vehicles to travel all over Europe. Today we are one step closer to achieving this goal. The opening of our first high-power charging station in Poland is an important milestone for electromobility in Eastern Europe, and our partnership with Shell is crucial in this context, ”added Ionity’s COO Marcus Groll.
