Mercedes-Benz Trucks, together with its project partner Netze BW as a customer, opened a customer charging park in Wörth am Rhein. Electric trucks can now test charging stations and charging concepts from various manufacturers at the "eTruck Charging Fleet" and discuss charging solutions for their applications with Mercedes-Benz Trucks experts on site.

A few final adjustments are still missing before the proposal can be used in the coming weeks, the spokesman said. The company has already invited to a presentation in Wörth on Monday. The new offering aims to make it easier for customers to get started with electric mobility.

Specifically, this should be done by providing different charging options in one place, which customers can directly compare with each other. On site, aspects such as grid connection, local energy production, energy storage and intelligent charging process management will also be discussed. In the future, it will be possible to show how charging processes can be integrated into existing logistics processes and how energy costs can be reduced.

The eTruck charging park currently includes six charging stations from Siemens, ABB, Ecoenergy and Alpitronic with capacities from 40 to 300kW on an area of approximately 2000 square meters.

Test driving the eActros 300/400 Heavy Duty Truck also gives customers a firsthand view of the efficiency, range and charging performance of the electric truck. On this basis, customers can work with experts on site to map out a complete electrical solution for their individual requirements

The park is also equipped with a photovoltaic system, including fixed storage. As a "proof of concept" it is intended to demonstrate how to efficiently provide power to charging stations.
