FreeWire Technologies, a battery-integrated electric vehicle (EV) charging station and power solution company, together with Parkland Corp., an international fuel distributor and retailer with operations in 25 countries, have teamed up to provide ultra-fast charging across British Columbia, Canada.
“FreeWire and Parkland are doing something incredibly innovative in launching what will be the largest deployment of battery-integrated ultrafast chargers in North America,” says Arcady Sosinov, FreeWire’s founder and CEO. “Our technology will help Parkland to provide coverage in areas where securing new, larger grid connections would make installing such infrastructure more challenging, making it possible for drivers to get a premium charge in the same amount of time it takes to grab a meal on the go – all without impacting the electrical grid.”
The initial phase of the partnership will deploy FreeWire’s Boost Charger, a 150 kW ultra-fast EV charging station, at 25 sites in British Columbia, from Victoria to Calgary. Charging locations were strategically selected to provide an essential charging service in dense urban locations, to remote destinations along major thoroughfares.
