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.

Gary Russell Jr. and brothers striving to triple-headline card as world champions someday soon

first_imgThis weekend will mark the fourth time that “Mr.” Gary Russell, 31, will share the spotlight with his younger brothers. Gary Antonio Russell, 27, will clash with Jesus Martinez in bantamweight action and Gary Antuanne Russell, 23, will face Jose Marrufo in a junior welterweight scrap — both further down the card. The family affair also includes their patriarch and trainer, Gary Russell Sr., presiding over their corners and fellow brother Gary Allan Russell serving as mitt man and assistant trainer.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThe feeling of having three Russell brothers featured on the same card never gets old.“We train hard, work hard in the gym and we feed off each other’s energy,” “Mr.” Gary Russell said.Added Gary Antonio: “It’s always a special moment to fight on the same card, but it’s also natural to me because I’m in the gym with them every single day. We run together, we swim together, everything we do is together as a unit.”While Saturday night will give the Russells a chance to etch another chapter in their collective fight legacies, they’ve already pinpointed how to make an indelible impression on the sweet science — by triple-headlining a card as world champions someday soon.”I think that would be amazing,” Gary Russell Jr., the lone world champ of the brothers, said. “There’s never been three brothers to hold a title on the same card or just three brothers as world champions. We’d be able to make history.”Jermell and Jermall Charlo were the last sibling pairs to co-headline a bout as world champs; the Russell trio doing it would be unprecedented.Gary Antuanne and Gary Antonio agree wholeheartedly.”That’s the whole plan,” he said. “Everything has an expiration on it, but memories are the only things that last forever.”Added Gary Antonio: “That would be wonderful. I could see that happening as well in the future. I’m looking forward to it.”Gary Antuanne, the live wire of the Russell siblings, is even putting a tentative timetable on it.”Honestly, I could say a year, I could say a couple of months,” he said of when he and Gary Antonio could join their oldest brother in holding world titles. “It depends on how things move in the boxing world.”After being informed of the brothers’ lofty ambition and the timing put on achieving it, Gary Russell Sr. gave his two cents.”It’s conceivable,” he said. “I don’t want to rush them. But I think a year, a year and a half is a good assessment.”If the Russells fight their plan to fruition, then there will never be an argument over who’s the headliner, either.”There’s an order to which things go,” Gary Antonio affirmed. “As long as older brother, (Gary) Jr., is still in the game — which I believe he will be — he’s the head. He’s the oldest — of course he’s going to take the main event. I’ll co-main event and my younger brother right behind me.As he constantly assesses his sons, Gary Sr. believes Gary Antuanne has the most promise. The patriarch of the fighting family out of Washington, D.C., made that clear when he gave SN a snapshot of his sons’ best in-ring exploits.”Gary Jr. has the jab, he has good eyes and hand speed,” he said. “He has a real acumen for his opponents.”Antonio — he’s deceptively strong. He can really punch.”Baby Boy,” he said, referring to Gary Antuanne, “I think he’s the special one out the bunch.”He has good speed, power, good defense. He has the ability to decide which style he wants to employ in the fight to make it work.”He’s also the most outspoken of the boxers, according to Gary Antuanne himself.”‘Mr.’ Gary Russell and Gary Antonio — they talk when they have to talk,” he said. “Me, I’m more open. I’m more joyful. I like to have fun, fun.”If I have a girlfriend … my girlfriend, I don’t want her to come out with me if she’s not going to want to have the fun I’m having,” he continued. “I’d tell her, ‘Baby girl, I want to have some fun, fun.'”The Russell brother have been having fun, fun with Gary Jr. (30-1, 18 KOs) rattling off six straight victories, including four straight title defenses, since his lone loss — a majority decision defeat to Vasiliy Lomachenko in June 2014. Gary Antonio (16-0, 12 KOs) and Gary Antuanne (12-0, 12 KOs) keep ascending the ranks and dazzling in the process.”By the time my younger brothers get to the point that I am in my career,” Saturday’s headliner, “Mr.” Gary Russell, said, “I expect for them to be better than I am.”My definition of a dynasty is information being passed down.”Along those lines, the Russells keep gems from their father close to their minds and hearts at all times. Gary Russell Jr. will be under the bright lights of the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa., on Saturday night well before putting his WBC featherweight title on the line against mandatory challenger Tugstsogt Nyambayar.”I’ll be working my younger brothers’ corners before my fight and of course I’ll be competing right after,” Russell told Sporting News. “I love being able to compete side-by-side and share it with my younger brothers.” “We got a gym credo that says. ‘Success is the ultimate revenge,'” Gary Antuanne said. “Using that credo keeps us honest and humble because it shows that we’re still on the same page.”Added Gary Antonio: “(My dad tells us), ‘There’s a short window and all good things come to an end, so take advantage of it.’ I know the sport of boxing is something I can’t do forever, so I’m looking at it and ready to start making my mark on the sport of boxing.”Until there are three Russell brothers triple-headlining as world champions.last_img read more
