The largest electric bus depot in Northern Europe is now fully functional in Aalborg, Denmark. Kempower has provided its DC fast charging technology to GodEnergi A/S for the depot, which can charge more than 100 electric buses at the same time.

GodEnergi A/S has installed 124 Kempower Satellite chargers at the depot, which are connected to 18 Kempower Power Units. Additionally, six transformers have been fitted in the local area, and over 20km of cabling has been laid at the facility, capable of delivering the equivalent power to simultaneously turn on over 40,000 flat-screen TVs, Kempower sums up.
The facility also features Kempower ChargEye, a comprehensive cloud-based charging management system. Kempower ChargEye will enable GodEnergi A/S to easily monitor and manage the day-to-day operations of both the chargers and electric buses, continuously optimizing charging power and ensuring that the buses have enough charge to run according to schedule.
