Electreon has unveiled the world’s first commercial wireless charging terminal for buses in Rosh HaAyin, Israel.
The site uses stationary wireless charging for parked urban electric buses operated by Electra Afikim.
This technology enables the buses to be charged at night and during the day while parked in bays at the public bus terminal.
“We are pleased to introduce to the world the first wireless charging terminal of this kind here in Israel, enabling efficient, cost-effective, and space-saving wireless charging for public transit buses in a busy urban zone. This innovative facility is designed to provide wireless charging for electric buses throughout the day and night, serving the public as part of regular public transportation services in the Petah Tikva and Rosh HaAyin areas.”
The terminal project, including the electrical infrastructure, required approvals and civil engineering works, was managed end-to-end by Electreon. The company has also supplied its advanced charging software platform that will remotely manage and oversee the wireless charging of the fleet.
To deliver the project, Electreon partnered with three international bus manufacturers selected by Electra Afikim: HIGER, Ankai, and Sunwin. These manufacturers fully integrated Electreon’s vehicle receivers into their electric buses.
What’s more, through this process, HIGER and Ankai completed the European Union’s WVTA approval process, which establishes the company’s wireless electric bus receiver as an off-the-shelf product available for the entire automotive industry.
This commercial project has a value of approximately 5.8 million ILS (1.6 million USD).
“Electra Afikim welcomes being the first company to operate a fleet of electric buses with Electreon's technology and thanks the Ministry of Transportation, Rosh HaAyin Municipality and Electreon for the cooperation in operating smart and advanced transportation as the company's vision.”
The completion of this project advances Electreon’s mission of transforming the global electric mobility landscape.
This year, the company also won its first tender in France for its wireless Electric Road technology on a highway near Paris and recently unveiled an EV-charging roadway at Michigan Central in the US.
