Epyon Terra Fast Charging Presented in the Netherlands

As the Nissan Leaf is getting ready to be presented in Amsterdam on May 12, EV charging solutions provider Epyon unveiled its fast charging system, the Terra, one which Epyon says will recharge the Nissan Leaf to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.

"We are very pleased with this opportunity and with the cooperation with Nissan. It underlines the trust Nissan has in our fast charging system and infrastructure solutions," Johan Peeters, Epyon vice president of sales and marketing said in a statement.

"While you are out of the car to get a cup of coffee or do some quick shopping, your car could be recharged and always be ready to go."

Usually, recharging an EV to full capacity via a 230V outlet takes 8 hours. Epyon's system, as said, does almost the same thing in 30 minutes.

According to the company, a single fast charging station can operate several compact outlets, allowing for simultaneously recharging several EVs. The system is configured, managed and maintained through Epyon's Power-Routing network, which offers charging station operators all the information they need to provide their service.

Epyon is a member of CHAdeMo, an organization established in March 2010 by a coalition of Japanese automakers, led by Nissan, Toyota and Tokyo Electric Power. Their main focus is the high-speed charging technology, which is supposed to work in the same manner today's gas stations do. The main problem facing the new coalition is the creation of the common charging procedures to govern this field.
