“Installation of the first EV fast charging stations is an important stage for high technologies development in the region. The administration will put all the possible efforts to further broaden the network of such charging stations throughout the Primorsky Kray”

– Elena Parkhomenko, acting Vice-Governor of the Primorsky Kray

“The launch of these electric vehicle charging stations in Primorskiy Kray is a new step in our effort to boost electric mobility in Russia. We are leveraging on the global expertise and extensive know-how of Enel X to bring the most advanced e-mobility technologies to the region and Russia as a whole, contributing to the transition towards clean and sustainable transport”

– Carlo Palasciano Villamagna, Enel Country Manager in Russia

“Electric cars owners have been waiting for this moment to come for several years. Now they can charge their vehicles rapidly, comfortably and safely. This is a new type of business for RusHydro – we keep pace with time and are always ready to develop new technological areas of business and contribute to the implementation of state policy in the field of infrastructure priority development in the Far East”

– Nikolay Shulginov, General Director of RusHydro

The fast charging stations, which all belong to Enel X’s JuicePump family, have three charging points each: two with a capacity of 50 kW DC and one of 22 kW AC. They are able to fill up two EVs at the same time and can give them up to 200 km charge in just 30-40 minutes. The ten charging stations are installed in Primorskiy Kray, in Russia’s Far Eastern Federal District: 7 in Vladivostok, one in Ussuriisk and another two in the city of Artem. The charging stations are compatible with all electric vehicles currently on the market and are in full compliance with international standards in the field of electric mobility.

The project follows the recent installation of three fast charging stations of the same family in the city of Chelyabinsk under an agreement with the distribution operator IDGC of Urals, a subsidiary of Russian energy grid operator PJSC Rosseti.
