PowerGo installs fastest charging station on the ABC islands

PowerGo recently installed the fastest charging station of the ABC islands on Curaçao. The Coral Estate resort on Curaçao is the first to be equipped with a 60-kilowatt fast charger for electric cars, will be put into operation as early as this week.

PowerGo is always looking for locations to roll out its charging infrastructure on the ABC islands. The first location was found at the luxury resort Coral Estate, west of Willemstad on Curaçao, where electric vehicles are used by both tourists and employees. In addition to Coral Estate, PowerGo plans to provide more locations with a 60kW fast charging station, with which electric cars vehicles be charged in no time.

‘To welcome guests from all over the world to our resort and to keep up with modern-day developments, it is of great importance to expand this service in every possible way at our resort’, says Claire Groeneveld of Coral Estate Rentals. Claire continues: ‘In this way, we not only optimize the experience of our guests, but we also contribute to a sustainable world.’

The Dutch company PowerGo has set the goal of realizing more than 5000 fast charging points throughout Europe (and the ABC islands) within 2 years. Many projects have already been completed in collaboration with Ecotap, supplier of the hardware for the charging stations, such as at HelloFresh and TopParken. As of now, more than 500 fast charging points are on order and PowerGo is ready for a large-scale rollout of charging points.

PowerGo currently has offices in the Netherlands and Spain and is working on developments and rollouts in Germany, Belgium and France and now also Curaçao. In addition, PowerGo wants to develop a ready-to-use carport with solar panels in collaboration with parent company PowerField in order to tie the generation of solar energy to the consumption of the charging infrastructure.
