The first two fast-charging stations went into operation in March 2023 at AMAG Oftringen and AMAG Sihlbrugg. Three more installations have been added since then – one at AMAG Winterthur, one at AMAG Chur and one at AMAG Vaduz in Liechtenstein. Five more fast-charging stations are expected to open by March 2024 – in Rheinfelden, Zuchwil, Bern, Crissier and Petit-Lancy. The remaining three stations in Schaffhausen, Noranco and Kriens are scheduled to go into operation in 2024. Frank Böhmerle, CTO at AMAG Automobil und Motoren AG: «With our fast-charging network, we are creating the basis for offering our customers security of price and supply for their electromobility needs.»
ABB’s Terra 360, one of the fastest all-in-one chargers currently on the market, is being used at all locations. Terra 360 delivers high performance, flexibility and ease of use. Wherever possible, the energy is always supplied via a direct connection to the power grid; however, if the municipality’s grid infrastructure cannot cope, AMAG uses a “peakshaving” system, in which the electricity is stored in a battery in order to still enable the highest charging capacity.
The expansion of the fast-charging network operated by AMAG Automobil und Motoren AG is one of the many cornerstones of the AMAG Group’s efforts to make the framework for electromobility as attractive as possible – in line with its climate and sustainability strategy. By 2025, the AMAG Group will also install around 1,000 more charging stations at its sites, of which 250 will be open to the public. In addition, the car parks operated by AMAG will, wherever possible, be partly converted into charging parks, where customers can rent parking spaces with charging stations for short or long periods. Currently, the Utoquai, Kongresshaus and Messe car parks in the city of Zurich can also be used as charging parks. The AMAG Group’s sustainability strategy also includes installing solar panels for photovoltaic (PV) systems on 75,000 square metres of the roofs on its own buildings by 2025.
