Environment Minister visits ADS-TEC in Nuertingen
Franz Untersteller tests new HPC fast charging station
On 30th August, Franz Untersteller, Baden-Wuerttemberg's Minister of Environment, drove his new Audi e-tron to ADS-TEC in Nuertingen to load the new official car at the company's newly installed fast charging station. The High-Power Charging Station was installed at the end of August in front of the main entrance and contains two charging stations at a distance of approx. 100 metres including the core of the station, a battery storage unit with a floor area of less than 1.5 m2 positioned directly next to it.
The charging system is compact, low-noise and designed as a solution for direct connection to the distribution network, which is limited in its electrical capacity and therefore normally not suitable for fast charging operations with high capacities. The "HPC-Booster" storage system upgrades the available network to a capacity of up to 320 kilowatts without the need for expensive and time-consuming expansion of the network connection. According to the principle of a WC cistern, the storage charges slowly and with low power from the network in order to deliver the collected energy to the vehicles when required in a short time and with high power.
An Audi e-tron can be charged with an output of up to 150 kilowatts. The minister's vehicle was thus back at full range in the shortest possible time. On the charging station display - also developed by ADS-TEC Industrial IT - the charging process could be easily followed despite strong sunlight.
On the following day, the Nuertinger Zeitung reported on the minister's visit: https://www.ntz.de/nachrichten/wirtschaft/artikel/umweltminister-bei-nuertinger-speicherspezialist/
