PSW Power & Automation to deliver fast charging system to electric ferries in Sweden

PSW Power & Automation has signed a contract with Västtrafik for the delivery of fast charging system to electric ferries in Strömstad in Sweden.

The delivery to Västtrafik consists of a high-power DC charging solution, semi-automated charging tower, civil works, and electrical infrastructure.

PSW Power & Automation is the market leader within shore power solutions and is expanding its product portfolio to include DC fast charging for electric vessels.

“We deliver complete, seamlessly integrated shore power solutions for safe and reliable power transfer from the power grid to the vessel. The electrification of land and sea-based transport demands rapid power transfer by using DC technology. DC fast charging is therefore a natural development,” says Eirik Sørensen, General Manager in PSW Power & Automation. 

DC fast charging systems are typically used by ferries or other vessels that operate on a defined route. The charging power is dynamically regulated based on the status of the battery on board and available time for charging.

“We are now working on several potential projects in Europe within DC charging solutions were batteries and alternative energy sources play an important role. This is a strategically important contract, and we see a great potential in this market in the coming years,” Sørensen continues.
