Fastned and Tesla open Germany’s largest fast charging hub

Fastned B.V. is a Dutch company that owns and operates a network of over 100 EV charging stations in the Netherlands, Germany, and the United Kingdom. A large majority of its stations are located at Dutch highway rest areas. Fastned, Tesla and Seed & Greet have opened Ladepark Kreuz Hilden, Germany’s largest fast charging hub. On site there is a café, a large Tesla Supercharger station and a large Fastned charging station. At the Fastned station 8 cars can charge simultaneously with up to 300 kW, allowing electric cars to add up to 300 km of range in just 15 minutes. The Fastned station is powered by energy from the sun and wind, generated partly by the station’s large solar roof. Ladepark Kreuz Hilden is right off the intersection between the motorways A3 and A46, close to Düsseldorf, Germany.

Fastned has 8 fast charging stalls and Tesla’s Supercharger station has 20 Supercharging stalls, bringing the current total for the hub to 28 stalls. The Fastned station in Kreuz Hilden can easily be expanded with more fast chargers, so that in the future 22 cars can charge simultaneously at the station.

“In order to power the exponentially growing number of electric vehicles, we need a lot of big fast charging stations. I call upon landowners that share this vision to contact us, so we can join forces and see if we can realise a Fastned station on their site. Together we will build the infrastructure of the future”, said Michiel Langezaal, CEO Fastned.
