Charging stations for electric vehicles on highways put into operation

first_imgOf the first 16 HEP filling stations on motorways, 12 were set up in cooperation with INA, and are located at the Ljubeščica, Vukova Gorica, Brinje and Lepenica Sjever rest areas, and at motorway entry / exit points in Goričan and Sesvetski Kraljevec. With this, we have put Croatia on the European map of electromobility and joined the network of electric charging stations on the trans-European transport network, said the President of the Management Board of Hrvatska elektroprivreda Frane Barbarić. and added: “Our ultimate goal is to provide Croatian citizens and all tourists and our guests with a safe long-distance electric car ride. To this end, as part of international projects, we will set up a total of 57 filling stations on Croatian motorways and other roads. With the completion of the currently active projects, HEP’s network, together with the already installed filling stations in Croatian cities, will have more than a hundred filling stations. ” HEP’s fast charging station in Brinje, with a capacity of 50 kW, was set up as part of the NEXT-E project, and like other HEP charging stations on motorways, it supports charging all available and upcoming types of electric vehicles on the market, HEP points out. Upon completion of the project, HEP’s network will have over 100 electric charging stations On the occasion of the National Day of Nikola Tesla, HEP marked the commissioning of the first 16 charging stations for electric vehicles on motorways by opening a fast charging station at the Brinje rest area. Investments in the installation of HEP filling stations on motorways are co-financed from European Union funds within the EAST-E and NEXT-E projects. As part of these projects, HEP is working with partners from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Romania to create a new network of 309 charging stations, which will enable uninterrupted driving of electric cars through six Central European countries. The new electric charging stations will enable citizens and tourists from European countries to drive an electric car and reach all tourist destinations in Croatia. “Electric vehicle drivers have at their disposal a wide range of products and services at our retail outlets, and while their cars are full, their time can be shortened with coffee or a meal at our Fresh Corners. For us, customers come first and that is why we are committed to improving our products and services every day, and we see a step towards electromobility as an opportunity for the company.”, Said Sándor Fasimon, President of the Management Board of INA. For the first time, the network of electric charging stations enabled electric car owners to drive from the border with Slovenia and Hungary to the Adriatic Sea, and the Republic of Croatia to connect to the network of charging stations for electric vehicles on the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).  The remaining four filling stations are located in Vrbovsko, Čavle, Delnice and Fužine, in the immediate vicinity of the A6 motorway. In total, more than 30 charging stations for electric cars on highways in the direction of the sea, but also in the direction of Lipovac on the continent, will be installed at rest areas near INA retail outlets.

Lakers snap losing streak with narrow win over Celtics

first_imgIn a game that featured seven ties and eight lead changes, the finish fueled a heated rivalry that once rested on championships.With the Lakers nursing a 105-104 lead with 18.3 seconds left, forward Wesley Johnson drew a swarm of Boston defenders that forced a jump ball. Much to the dismay of Boston, officials determined the replays showed the ball equally bouncing off the finger tips of Johnson and Gerald Wallace.“I said it was for us so you have to have evidence to overturn that,” D’Antoni recalled telling the officials. “So I just asked, ‘Where’s the evidence?” There’s no evidence if you can’t see what happened.”Johnson then won on the second jump ball attempt.“Once they told me to jump it again,” Johnson said, “I knew I was going to get it.” BOSTON — Amid the persisting losses, endless injuries and bleak playoff fortunes, the Lakers can at least pinpoint this accomplishment during the 2013-14 season on their resume.The Lakers beat the Celtics. The cast of characters didn’t feature Hall of Famers. The implications hardly provided an NBA Finals preview. But the Lakers’ 107-104 victory Friday over Boston at TD Garden snapped a six-game losing streak and suddenly gave a team losing 12 of its past 14 games renewed confidence. “It’s a big rivalry and we experienced so much against them,” said Pau Gasol, who posted 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting, 13 rebounds and six assists. “Even though the teams have changed quite a bit, it’s still great to come in and beat this team here. With the losing streak we had going on, it’s more meaningful.” Lakers rookie forward Ryan Kelly then grabbed the ball and nailed two free throws that both secured the win and polished off a career-high 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting. In his first appearance since rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee for the past year, Boston All-Star guard Rajon Rondo then missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer before time expired. He finished with eight points on 4-of-9 shooting and four assists in 19 minutes.“I’m confident in my game,” Kelly said. “I’ve been working my butt off with our coaching staff and putting in the extra time. I’m growing every game I step on the floor.”So did Kendall Marshall, whose 19-point effort included a 3-pointer that put the Lakers up 105-104 with 1:09 left. Marshall’s play coincided with his apology earlier Friday toward Nick Young, who served a one-game suspension for committing a “punching foul” on Suns guard Goran Dragic in Wednesday’s loss Phoenix. Young called out his teammates for not helping him in an altercation.“It got to the point where we have to put our foot down,” Marshall said. “We’d like to have Nick with us, but he lit a fire in us and he got us going.” The Lakers (15-25) believe such a mindset secured a win against the hated Celtics (14-27) despite several variables. Long-term injuries to the Lakers’ backcourt. Manny Harris posting seven points on 2-of-7 shooting in his first game since dominating the Development League earlier this week. The Lakers’ 19 turnovers. Boston rookie Kelly Olynyk posting a career-high 29 points. But the Lakers won the rebounding battle, 46-44. The Lakers held Boston scoreless for the last three minutes. The effort presumably put injured star Kobe Bryant in a better mood.“It’s been very difficult and very frustrating. I try to detach from it as much as possible. I feel like Bruce Banner and putting him in the middle of a bar fight and hope he doesn’t become the Hulk,” Bryant said, referring to the popular comic book series. This time, the Lakers felt much different.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
