Unified Chargers has installed the first intelligent fast charging station at Juustoportti Oy in Ylöjärvi

“The fast charging station is cost effective and innovative, because it can charge two electric vehicles simultaneously. Another significant benefit is its compact size; the charger is small and light enough to be installed on the wall of the garage saving space in comparison to traditional fast chargers.” – explains the CEO and founding partner of Unified Chargers, Jukka Anttonen. “Fast installation without lifting equipment adds further to the cost-effectiveness of the new charging station. A charger can be installed and connected to a pre-installed power cable in less than an hour.”

“So far feedback on the charger has been positive. Of course there will be surprises, and we hope that the users will give us constructive feedback so that we can develop the equipment and service experience further and more user-friendly.” – continues sales manager Mika Kujala from Leppäkosken Energia. “To get as much user experiences and testing data, we decided to lower the threshold of using the new charger by providing fast charging without any cost to the user. So we welcome all EV drivers to test the charger!” – invites Kujala. “Many users have complemented the good location next to high traffic road three. The power supply capacity is sufficient for several fast chargers and we’re prepared to extend the service in accordance with the increasing demand.” – promises Kujala.
