- Official partnership between Siemens and SPIE
- Comprehensive package for electric vehicle charging infrastructure
First (DC) quick charger installed in Frankfurt
Frankfurt, September 13th, 2017 – Siemens has entered into a partnership with the multi-technical service provider SPIE to create an electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The aim is to provide comprehensive packages in line with customer requirements – from consulting and installing to the operation of electric vehicle charging stations, regardless of the back-end system used. With over 200 branches in Germany, SPIE is the ideal partner to install, commission, technically operate and integrate Siemens’ portfolio of DC fast-charging systems into system solutions.
The two companies have already initiated their partnership: Last week, Siemens launched a 50-kilowatt (kW) Compact Power Charger at the Frankfurt branch. As a result, employees, customers and visitors can now recharge their vehicles within a short space of time. Common charging standards, such as CCS, CHAdeMO and Type 2, are available here.
SPIE performed all of the construction work and commissioning for this project. In addition, SPIE is also in charge of technical operations and annual maintenance.
“We are offering our customers a comprehensive package thanks to our dense network of locations and broad expertise in finding the right solutions as a multi-technical service provider. With us, this starts long before the actual construction begins, as we provide an extensive range of consulting services in the planning stages and perform service and maintenance work in addition to construction,” explained Markus Holzke, Managing Director of SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa. Siemens is providing charging systems with power outputs ranging from 50 kW to 350 kW: The Compact Power Charger’s power unit and operating unit are integrated into a housing, while the Multi-Charger’s power units and operating units are separate.
“With our extensive portfolio, we can provide the right product in any power category and meet any requirements,” explained Niels Geduldig, head of the business segment in charge at Siemens Large Drives. “All of our DC charging systems can charge batteries with a power output of up to 920 volts. As a result, we are prepared for future generations of vehicles, giving our customers maximum investment security.”
At New Mobility World in Frankfurt, the Solution Partner Emblem will be officially awarded to SPIE by management representatives on 13 September 2017. With this emblem, Siemens partners are certified for a specific product group in line with strict, uniform and global criteria and offered consistent training and support.
