Power Electronics participates in the first power station for electric cars in Balearic Islands

14 November, 2019

  • Located in the Son Castelló business estate, in Palma, the power station has 10 fast recharging points with a power of 50 kW each.
  • It is one of the largest electric car power station in Spain.

This Thursday, November 14, the first Balearic electric car power station has been inaugurated, a project of the Association of Industrialists of Mallorca ASIMA and the company QEV, and in which Power Electronics has participated with its NB Station.

The power station, located in Camí Vell de Bunyola, in Son Castelló de Palma, is one of the largest electric car power stations in Spain and will be equipped with ten fast charging points with a power of 50 kW each.

The NB Station is a turnkey solution that allows you to optimice the cost of the recharge infrastructure and its installation times. In addition, this solution will allow in the future to increase the power in each post, and therefore reduce recharge times, through simple updates, thus guaranteeing the durability of the equipment and the investment made. This recharging solution allows fast charging in DC, which makes it the best solution for service stations on highways, shopping centers and industrial environments. Its main characteristic in relation to other products on the market is that the equipment integrates the transformer and medium voltage cells in the same enclosure.

The NB Station allows the connection of up to ten charging posts, capable of offering recharge to all types of electric vehicles, regardless of the type of connector, as many European vehicles (based on CCS-2) as Japanese (based on CHAdeMO). In addition, it incorporates the possibility of GB / T connection, a technology used in Chinese-made vehicles.

This recharge solution allows the owner of the installation considerable savings in CAPEX and OPEX by significantly simplifying the design of the infrastructure by integrating all medium voltage elements. On the other hand, the equipment works with an authentication system with RFID cards, and a friendly and simple user interface that allows the consumer an easy interaction through a ten-inch touch screen.

The first power station of the islands is inaugurated

The opening ceremony was chaired by ASIMA President Francisco Martorell Esteban, who has announced special rates for associates, and recalled the association’s commitment to the new model of mobility and renewable energy.

For its part, the president and CEO of the QEV group, Enrique Bañuelos, highlighted that ASIMA is the first Balearic power station, and has advanced that the company to install another 7 fast-charging centers in Mallorca throughout 2020, with the aim to provide the island with one of the best infrastructure in Europe, and that there is no distance greater than 20 km for this service.

The event was also attended by the Mayor of the City Council of Palma, José Hila, and the Vice President of the Balearic Government and Minister of Energy Transition and Productive Sectors, Juan Pedro Yllanes, who leads the department of regional administration that has supported the project through the Ecotasa aid program.
