Milan, 22 December 2021 – Atlante, the Global Business Line of NHOA Group (NHOA: PA, formerly Engie EPS) dedicated to electric vehicle fast and ultra-fast charging infrastructure, in partnership with Free To X, a company of the Group Autostrade per l’Italia dedicated to sustainable mobility services, will install fast and ultra-fast charging stations 100% powered by renewables in Milan Malpensa and Linate airports.
Indeed, on 20 December 2021 Free To X won the tender launched by SEA, the company that manages Milan Linate and Malpensa airports, for the construction of charging stations for electric and plug-in hybrid cars. The winning project sees Free To X as Charge Point Operator and Atlante as partner for the installation of charging stations and for energy management services.
Furthermore, Atlante and Free To X have proposed innovative Destination Charging solutions dedicated to long term parking for the future development of Milan airports. Leveraging on NHOA’s 15 years of experience in microgrids and in the storage of renewables, and on the Vehicle-to-Grid technology that guarantees the integration of electric mobility with the national grid, Atlante is ready to carry out pilot projects with the aim of transforming airports into real hubs for 100% sustainable electric mobility.
“SEA’s initiative to electrify airports with ultra-fast chargers is forward-looking, and we have welcomed with great enthusiasm the opportunity to work with Free To X and Autostrade per l’Italia in such an iconic project. By summer, Milan airports will also become the beating heart of electric mobility, and this is only a first step towards the creation of real hubs for the mobility of the future!” said Stefano Terranova, CEO of Atlante.
The awarded project involves the installation of four charging stations 100% powered by renewables: one in Linate, one in Malpensa and two in the private aviation terminals of the two airports.
In Linate a Superfast Charging Station will be installed equipped with 10 fastcharging points, eight of which ultra-fast up to 300kW, while in Malpensa 7 fastcharging points will be available, six of which ultra-fast. In addition, a total of 8 charging points will be installed in the areas outside the terminals dedicated to private aviation, four of which up to 150kW.
The charging stations, accessible also to people with reduced mobility, will be available to the airport customers and the public 24/7, open to all electric vehicles and compatible with all charging standards and service providers for electric mobility.
