Low noise level for pantograph chargers in Barcelona

The two 500 kW pantograph charging stations, each with 500 kW, will be adapted to the climate conditions in Barcelona. Moreover, they will generate a very low noise level (<55dB), Ekoenergetyka points out. Due to the weather conditions and high temperatures in Barcelona, the stations are equipped with an additional safety system.

Eight Ekoenegetyka chargers already in Barcelona

Ekoenergetyka-Polska has experience in constructing charging stations in the urban space of the Catalan operator TMB, as it has already provided solutions for it. Seven 50 kW plug-in chargers were installed at TMB depot, as well as a 500 kW pantograph quick charging station. Barcelona is planning to replace the oldest buses in the city with electric ones.

«Another project for Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona, carried out with Endesa Energia S.A.U. is an excellent example of our ability to meet the high expectations of our customers. The infrastructure delivered to Spain is quiet, has dimensions adapted to the available space and is protected against high temperatures thanks to a fire system. It is this ability to adapt to requirements that makes customers choose our solutions» says Maciej Wojeński, Vice President of Ekoenergetyka-Polska.
