MILAN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:
Atlante, the company of NHOA Group (NHOA.PA, formerly Engie EPS) (Paris:NHOA) dedicated to electric vehicles fast and ultra-fast charging infrastructure announces the signing of an implementation agreement with Politecnico di Milano, within the Joint Research Center (JRC) framework, for the creation of a testing facility lab for Atlante’s cutting-edge eStation.
The collaboration between NHOA Group and Politecnico di Milano deepens in the context of the JRC program with an additional investment by Atlante to develop a testing facility in which Ph.D. students, young researchers, professors of the Politecnico di Milano and the R&D teams of Atlante, NHOA and Free2move eSolutions, as technology provider, will collaborate for the testing of the most advanced functionalities and features of Atlante’s eStation.
The partnership will offer the chance to work in a testing environment with the most innovative tools. The facility will host and operate a new hi-tech combination of fast and ultra-fast charging points supported by battery storage and powered by a system of solar panels all to be installed by Atlante. The facility is designed to be the testing site also for the use of Atlante’s digital platforms including the proprietary Energy Management System and cloud computing to unlock a better management of distributed energy. The eStation testing facility will allow Atlante to demonstrate its durability, resilience, and impact on the surrounding environment.
This implementation agreement falls into the wider, and deeply consolidated, long-lasting cooperation between NHOA Group and Politecnico di Milano, already resulted in several collaborative processes such as the JRC project and the Girls@Polimi initiative, which supports young girls providing a full-cycle scholarship in STEM disciplines.
Construction of the testing facility is expected to start by the end of 2022, enabling the testing procedures to start at the beginning of 2023.
“Investing in research infrastructures and in long-term research projects with industrial partners such as NHOA is the secret to be able to build the knowledge and to transfer the know-how from university to society, and also contributing to train researchers and technicians in mastering the technologies of tomorrow. We are very happy with this initiative which allows us to equip ourselves better and better to face the technological challenge of “sustainable mobility”, a research field where Politecnico di Milano and NHOA are at the forefront.” Declared Daniele Rocchi, Rector Delegate for Corporate Relations of Politecnico di Milano.
“We are proud of this new chapter of NHOA’s long standing partnership with the Politecnico di Milano, within the implementation of the JRC framework. At Atlante we are thrilled by the opportunity: this testing facility will provide us and the PoliMi students and researchers with a co-creation environment to study innovative solutions in the field of EV fastcharging solutions, surely taking our eStation to the next level” commented Stefano Terranova, CEO of Atlante.
