Kempower to install 14 charging hubs across Romania

Kempower has partnered with TSG and gas company MOL Group to install its rapid EV chargers at 14 new service stations in Romania.

The chargers, which will be located along Romania’s A1 and A2 highways, are being introduced as part of efforts to boost the country’s EV charging infrastructure.

Romania is one of many countries in the European Union to pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. A significant part of this vow involves decarbonizing its transportation sector, which is currently the country’s third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. The Romanian government is also aiming to reduce its dependence on Russian fossil fuels and accelerate its green transition through the REPowerEU Plan.

MOL Group is delivering the Romanian project as part of its local investment strategy aiming to boost charging infrastructure in the country. It also supports the organization’s push to minimize its environmental footprint by decreasing emissions throughout its entire value chain of operations.

Each of the 14 service stations will be equipped with a 200kW Kempower C-Series charging power unit and three Kempower S-Series satellite charging systems. Ten service stations are already installed, with the remaining four due to be installed soon.

Commenting on the company’s first significant project in Romania, Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower, said: “We want to introduce new technologies worldwide, so we’re delighted to supply our chargers to Romania. Given the success of our partnership with TSG and MOL Group, we’re confident that the project will be fully carried out swiftly. Once all 14 stations are operational, Romania will be one step closer to realizing fully decarbonized highways.”
