CTEK will build 1,000 charging stations in Stockholm parking lot

Swedish charging specialist CTEK is cooperating with Stockholm Parking to install more than 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations in the new 18,000 square meter “Norra Stationsparken” car park in Hagastaden, on the outskirts of Stockholm.

Each of the parking spots in the parking lot will be equipped with a Chargestorm Connected 2 EV charger from CTEK and paired with a charge management system, according to CTEK. This charger is available in many versions. According to the published press images, the version with two Type 2 connections is used in the parking lot; alternatively, there are also versions with a single socket or fixed cables. The charging power is not mentioned in the release, it can be between 3.7 and 22 kW for the CTEK Chargestorm Connected 2 – with the Nanogrid solution the load is distributed according to the load anyway.

Norra Stationsparken is already the seventh car park in Stockholm where all parking spaces will be equipped with charging options for electric cars. When it opens, it will be one of the largest installations for electric vehicles in a car park in all of Europe. By 2026, Stockholm Parking aims to offer electric vehicle charging in all its car parks and aims to have more than 100,000 new charging stations by 2030.

“An investment of this size really shows that Stockholm is leading European capitals in supporting the shift to fossil-free transport,” says Cecilia Routledge, Global Director of Energy and Facilities at CTEK. “For CTEK, it is also proof that our multi-year collaboration with Stockholm Parking continues to grow. Business and government need to work closely together on mobility issues if we are to be able to meet our climate goals.
