The project required a turnkey solution for AMT. Jema carried out a study of bus depots in which it became clear that it was unfeasible to install the cargers near the buses.
The project team proposed the installation of electric DC charging reels on the roof of the depots in order to connect the chargers to the further away buses.
The installation of the reels involved the mechanical reinforcement of the depot structure, which was successfully completed in a short period of time. In addition, Jema installed a button to active the reel in order to allow a safely unhooked of the hose.
A total of 9 ECI series chargers have been installed: five double 50 kW chargers and four 50 kW chargers with intelligent charging system and hose connection.
The reels and the modular chargers have made it possible to overcome the architectural barriers of the depot, built in the 19th century, without the need for major building work.
