France’s fastest charging station opens in Normandy

the electrical terminal the fastest in France, which promises to fully recharge a car in about twenty minutes, was inaugurated on Thursday, September 22, near Vernon, along the A13 motorway between Paris and the Normandy coast. It is the first charging station inaugurated by Kallista Energy, a subsidiary of the Canadian group Boralex, which operates 36 wind farms in Europe. Kallista plans to eventually open a network of 90 stations under the “Yaway” brand, powered primarily by wind.

The Vernon-Douains station, not propelled by the wind, offers two ultra-fast charging stations, reaching up to 360 kW, a power much higher than even the best equipped vehicles, such as the porsche Taycan or the tesla model 3This terminal, still in tests, will allow the next generation of cars to recover up to 100 kilometers of autonomy in less than three minutes, according to its designer, the Swedish-Swiss group ABB.

Copies of this model manufactured in Italy and called “Terra 360” are already operating in Germany with the oil company Shell and in Norway with the energy company Eviny. The terminal shares its power among the cars that connect to it, up to four at a time. The load continues to cost 0.55 euros per minute but will soon be billed per kWh. En route to Paris from the coast, an Audi SUV recharged there on Wednesday, going from 2 to 80% range in 32 minutes, owner Benoist Girard, 43, explained as he returned on the road.
