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.

RTU Coach Fumes at home match ban

first_imgHead Coach of Real Tamale United Mohammed Gargo says he is not pleased with the Ghana Football Association’s decision to suspend his team from playing the rest of their premier league games at the Tamale Stadium. The decision by the GFA to suspend the premier league returnees was arrived following two separate cases of violence exhibited by the management and supporters of Tamale based side during their premier league games with Aduana Stars and SC Medeama. But Coach Mohammed Gargo disagrees with the decision and says it’s unfair.“If you look at what is happening to RTU, i don’t think it is fair to ban us from playing at the Tamale Stadium”. He told JOY Sports“A similar incident happened in Kumasi during the Kotoko, Lions game, why is Kotoko not banned? But why with RTU is all over the country”.“They are making us work tirelessly for nothing and when you talk you become the number one enemy because you stand for the truth, i mean is not fair for something like this to happen in Ghana football”last_img read more
