Electreon signs cooperation agreements in the United States and Finland

Israeli electric vehicle (EV) charging company Electreon announced that it is partnering with two companies this month for projects in the United States and Finland. The first project is a cooperation with an engineering research center to install the company’s wireless charging technology in a research test track in Utah. The second is cooperation with an infrastructure service provider to enter the Finnish market.

First Electreon has partnered with ASPIRE (Advancing Sustainability through Powered Infrastructure for Roadway Electrification), an engineering research center funded by a national science foundation for a collaborative project that will see the Israeli company’s technology installed on the test track research center at Utah State University in North Logan, Utah. The technology will be installed to demonstrate and validate its functionality before the company’s first public deployment splanned for 2023 in Detroit as well as several upcoming pilot projects involving the Utah Inland Port Authority (Salt Lake City, UT) and the Central Florida Expressway (Orlando, FL).

Electreon aims to use this project as a starting point to conduct future vehicle integration programs with various automakers, significantly advancing sustainable mobility infrastructure for the nation and the world.

For the second project, Electreon intends to enter the Finnish market through collaboration with Destia, the largest infrastructure service company and one of the leading providers of charging infrastructure services in Finland. The companies signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). As part of the collaboration, they will demonstrate the wireless charging technology to potential customers by integrating the system into a commercial electric vehicle (EV).

The objective of the collaboration is to develop commercial wireless charging projects, where Electreon’s wireless charging system and associated operation and maintenance services could be provided as part of the charging solution as that Destia service. Destia offers EV charging solutions for businesses and professional transport, its customers include bus operators, logistics companies, vehicle manufacturers and taxi companies.
