Today, Fastned and the municipality of The Hague have opened the first urban fast-charging station in the Netherlands. The station is part of a series of five stations that will be realised in the city of The Hague. As a project partner Octatube has been involved since the design phase, taking care of the engineering, production and installation of the canopy. It consists of steel, timber and PV glass.
With 56 stations along Dutch highways Fastned has nationwide coverage and is now expanding its network to urban locations. By doing so Fastned is responding to the increasing demand for fast charging infrastructure at high traffic locations along the highway and in urban areas.
Another 4 city stations will be realised in The Hague in the next few months. There are advanced plans to realise fast charging stations in other cities as well. At all Fastned stations, all types of fully electric cars (including Tesla's) can fast charge their battery.
