Heliox Powers Charging Infrastructure Project in Wiesbaden

Heliox Powers Its Largest Charging Infrastructure Project in Germany at the ESWE Verkehr Wiesbaden Depot

  • Heliox powers a total of 6,3 MW in the city of Wiesbaden. In a project granted to Heliox in June 2019, the first batch of 56 chargers  is now operational for new Daimler eCitaro busses.

At the Gartenfeldstraβe depot in Wiesbaden, visitors will first notice the large number of purple ESWE Verkehr buses neatly queued up. Space is limited in the depot, and clever solutions were implemented to give the e-fleet flexibility. Charging dispensers have been installed at regular intervals in between columns, to make charging plug and play easy.

The Wiesbaden project is Heliox’s largest implementation of charging infrastructure for public transport in Germany.

Due to restricted space, the charging pillars enclosures have been adapted to fit narrow access at the depot. Heliox has simplified access to CCS chargers by moving the interface and the control button to the front of the pillars.

Business Development Manager DACH, Sebastian Winner, explained:

“The implementation in Wiesbaden shows Heliox’s capability to be flexible and to come up with solutions that help ESWE Verkehr Wiesbaden to improve the uptime and charging speed of their e-bus fleet. We are very happy that we have been given the opportunity to contribute to the electrification of public transport in Wiesbaden.”

Communication between the charging system and the depot management system has also been changed. Charger connectivity is improved making it possible to begin earlier pre-conditioning of the bus.

Project Manager at ESWE Verkehr in Wiesbaden, Sebastian Aring, said:

“Together with Daimler Busses and IFY, the partnership resulted in getting the optimum when it comes to keeping our bus depot flexible and operational at the same time.”

The Wiesbaden project is Heliox’s largest implementation of charging infrastructure for public transport in Germany, although not the only one which has been implemented since the end of 2020: Darmstadt and Bonn are also well under way.

As well as growth in e-bus projects in Europe, the e-truck segment is also gaining traction in the US. And Heliox is also at the forefront of driving zero emission maritime commuter transport  In Copenhagen, e-ferries are powered with Heliox chargers.
