Ten thousand new charging stations for Dutch airports

Royal Schiphol Group will install up to 10,000 new charging stations for electric vehicles by 2030, spread across the various Royal Schiphol Group airports in the Netherlands: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Rotterdam The Hague Airport, Lelystad Airport and Eindhoven Airport. Charging stations are key to achieving emission-free airports by 2030. As part of this, all vehicles are to be electric by the end of the decade: from ground handling to hotel shuttles and everything in between.

More charging stations for all vehicles

There are now around 400 public EV charging stations at Schiphol Airport. Currently, it is mostly electric passenger cars that are using these charging stations. For these users, this project will significantly increase capacity in the coming years. In addition, there will also be an opportunity to provide charging capacity for electric lorries, buses and ground handling vehicles.

Smart charging

In addition to expanding the number of charging stations, Royal Schiphol Group entered into a tender and collaboration with Fimih Combination to manage the charging stations as well as with Fimih Combination and its partner Maxem, for the provision of a smart digital platform.

With the advent of this ChargePoint Operator (CPO) platform, all charging facilities will be able to be centrally monitored and controlled. The digital CPO platform allows charging facilities to be smartly managed and even linked to energy generated by solar panels at the airports. This is to prevent overloading the power grid and to allow users to charge renewably generated energy when the sun is shining. (mfo)
