The Politecnico di Milano and Atlante, the company of NHOA Group (NHOA.PA, formerly Engie EPS) dedicated to electric vehicles fast and ultra-fast charging infrastructure, have signed an agreement for the creation of a testing facility lab for Atlante’s cutting-edge eStation.
This implementation agreement falls into the cooperation between NHOA Group and the Politecnico di Milano, within the Joint Research Centre (JRC).
The lab will be a testing environment with the most innovative tools, where Ph.D. students, young researchers, professors of the Politecnico and the R&D teams of Atlante, NHOA and Free2move eSolutions, as technology provider, will collaborate for the testing of the most advanced functionalities and features of Atlante’s eStation, a new hi-tech combination of fast and ultra-fast charging points supported by battery storage and powered by a system of solar panels.
Investing in research infrastructures and in long-term research projects with industrial partners such as NHOA is the secret to be able to build the knowledge and to transfer the know-how from university to society, and also contributing to train researchers and technicians in mastering the technologies of tomorrow. We are very happy with this initiative which allows us to equip ourselves better and better to face the technological challenge of 'sustainable mobility', a research field where Politecnico di Milano and NHOA are at the forefront,
have declared Daniele Rocchi, Rector’s Delegate for Relations with companies of the Politecnico di Milano.
At Atlante we are thrilled by the opportunity: this testing facility will provide us and the PoliMi students and researchers with a co-creation environment to study innovative solutions in the field of EV fastcharging solutions, surely taking our eStation to the next level,
have commented Stefano Terranova, CEO of Atlante.
Construction of the testing facility is expected to start by the end of 2022, enabling the testing procedures to start at the beginning of 2023.
