The charging infrastructure in Germany is getting a strong boost: In cooperation with ATU, we will build fast charging locations at 400 additional ATU stores. The expansion of the charging network throughout Germany should already begin this year."With the signing of the contract, we are playing a leading role in the expansion of e-mobility. Together with our partner Allego, we are meeting the challenges of the energy transition with high-performance charging infrastructure at over 400 locations. At the same time, with this cooperation, we are further expanding our outstanding position as a service and accessory partner for e-mobility across the board," explains Lars Heyne, Managing Director for Transformation (CTO) at ATU.
900 Additional fast charging pointsThe contract provides for the installation of fast charging stations at 400 ATU stores delivering around 900 new charging points. Allego Managing Director Ulf Schulte explains: "We deliberately chose ATU for this major project. We were just as impressed by the strong branch network with attractive locations as the very successful cooperation at the existing 41 locations." The charging locations will be acquitted with at least 150 kW chargers. This year we have planned to start the realization of 85 new locations, in addition, the existing 41 locations will be upgraded to 150 kW chargers.
"Currently, the plans envisage that we will start expanding the charging network at 85 locations already this year in close cooperation with our partner ATU. In addition, the existing 41 locations will be completely upgraded to 150 KW. The goal is to have all locations realized by the end of 2024. A total of 440 charging locations will then be available at ATU shops.
