Electric car, fast chargers |  Recharge will replace old fast chargers with lightning chargers

There has been a crazy improvement in electric cars in a relatively short time, and today people frown if it is not possible to charge a car with 150 kilowatts or more.

This is very different from previous years, when we called 50 kilowatts “fast charging.”

This is exactly what Recharge, Norway's largest charging company, which was early on in building Norway's charging infrastructure, is keenly aware. Much of this old equipment is slow and partly unreliable.

But now they are taking action.

– Hundreds of older fast chargers will need to be replaced, either with 400 kilowatt fast chargers, or, if we are constrained by power grid capacity, with modern 50 kilowatt fast chargers that have better runtime and a card payment terminal. “When we finish this, all of our fast chargers and flash chargers will have card payment terminals,” says Stian Matthiessen, communications director at Recharge.

According to the company, the work will be carried out over the “next few years.”

– We have built a number of new charging stations in recent years, but it has been a long time since Recharge last built a new 50 kW fast charger in Norway. In recent years, fast chargers with a power of up to 400 kW have been in use, but since we have been building charging stations for more than ten years, we have many older fast chargers in our network. We are looking forward to a major upgrade to give electric drivers faster charging and card payment stations, and also because the new chargers ensure better uptime. When we encounter challenges with charging stations going out of service, it's often older fast chargers, Matthiessen says
