Heliox: Charging Infrastructure With DC Outlet for Darmstadt

Heliox Implements Charging Infrastructure With DC Outlet at Darmstadt

  • Heliox is happy to bring even more flexibility to the e-bus fleet, by introducing the DC outlet at Darmstadt. 28 * 150 kW aircooled chargers with a total power of 4.2 MW have been implemented.

In Darmstadt, chargers are located outside the depot as space was limited. By installing DC outlets, the depot chargers can be placed further away without compromising on the charging interface being close to the E-bus. CCS plugs are positioned in overhead compartments, making it easy for the driver to fetch the charger from the simplified charging reel.

The largest benefit the DC outlet offers is sequential charging.

In this case, one compartment caters for two CCS plugs, which means that two e-buses can be charged with one DC outlet providing maximum flexibility. The solution provided is futureproof, as the current interface can be replaced in due course.

The largest benefit the DC outlet offers is sequential charging. By using several DC outlets, charging of vehicles and the amount of power can be steered.  After the first vehicle has finished charging, the next vehicle will start charging automatically.

The 150 kW charger has also undergone some modifications to be better equipped for public transport purposes. At Darmstadt, the aircooled version has been carried out, with it’s largest benefit being the bi-directionality feature, again focussing on future application.

Project lead at ENTEGA AG Darmstadt, Tobias Gross, explained:

“In Darmstadt, we laid down an ambitious project to elektrify a large part of our e-bus fleet, within a relative short timeframe. We are pleased that Heliox is a reliable partner, thinking along throughout the whole project.”

Heliox keeps moving forward to help accomplish zero emission public transport.
