Of the 320 high-power electric chargers that Siemens supplied Engie Vianeo to install in motorway service stations in France, 175 are “made in” Portugal, at its factory in Corroios. About 95% of the electric chargers that the multinational has manufactured in our country so far have been exported to countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Holland, Hungary, Romania, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Israel, India, Brazil, Chile and Colombia.

Siemens has created an ecosystem for electric mobility in Portugal that brings together production capacity, ensured by the Corroios Factory, research and development and a competence center for sales, engineering, project management and “service”.

Engie Vianeo, through its subsidiaries ENGIE Solutions and SSEC (a joint venture with Certas Energy France), has joined Siemens Smart Infrastructure to install charging stations for state-of-the-art electric vehicles in 64 motorway service areas on France.

The new charging stations for electric vehicles are located on the SANEF (Société des Autoroutes du Nord et de l'Est France), APRR (Paris-Rhin-Rhône), AREA (Société des Autoroutes Rhône-Alpes) and VINCI Autoroutes networks . Combining efficiency and speed, these charging stations deliver modular power from 160kW to 300kW, allowing charging up to 80% in 20 minutes.

Each charging station dynamically distributes the charge between two vehicles at the same time and features a 24-inch display to optimize the user experience. The constant efficiency of the chargers, greater than 95.5%, optimizes energy costs, ensuring optimal transmission of energy to vehicles.

The network includes 251 300 kW SICHARGE D high-power chargers and 69 160 kW SICHARGE D chargers, which can be upgraded to 300 kW.
