Kempower debuts megawatt charger at ACT Expo

Kempower MCS at ACT 2024

USA / Finland – At the Advanced Clean Technology expo (ACT Expo) in Las Vegas last month, Finnish electric charging provider, Kempower OYJ, based in Lahti, Finland, debuted its new Megawatt Charging System (MCS), designed to charge high-powered EVs such as electric HGV trucks. The high-powered 1.2 MW chargers are expected to go into series production later this year and initially, will be rolled out in Finland and then later to other parts of Continental Europe and North America.

This new charging solution has been built using Kempower’s own proprietary technology, including its liquid-cooled charging plug and two 600 kW Kempower power units, all developed in-house. Unused power can be distributed among several high-power CCS2 outputs within the same system which facilitates the transition toward widespread MCS adaptation. Kempower indicated that these chargers should help provide much-needed charging infrastructure to support the adoption of electric HGV truck adoption across Europe and North America.
