EVA950 – Quickcharger for E-Buses

  • Project period: 2012 – 2015
  • Location: Münster, Germany
  • Product category: E-Mobility

For the project “SEB – Fast charging systems for electric buses in public transport” of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Schaltbau Pintsch Bamag designed and produced three charging stations, type EVA950, with an output power up to 500 kW.

The aim of the project was to charge a 12-meter bus, equipped with an electrical drive und a high current battery within several minutes (<10 min), using an automatic robot arm and a high power charging station. The function was proved successfully and optimized together with the bus during the test phase.

The charging stations are compliant to EN 61851-24 and are able to generate a loading current up to 1,000 A. Today, they are in daily use at the city of Münster.
