Finland : Fortum Charge & Drive charging network expands to Trondelag, Norway.

Fortum Charge & Drive acquires EV Power's 10 charging stations in Trondelag, Norway. Through the deal the Charge & Drive network will expand with new fast chargers. Some of the chargers included in the transaction will be replaced with new models. Where possible, Fortum will extend the existing charging locations to include two fast-chargers and one semi-fast charging station with twin outlets. Fortum Charger & Drive will also establish several new charging stations in Trondelag. Fortum's target is that all EV-models should be able to utilise all charging stations.

"We are happy that we now establish a real foothold in Trondelag. We are looking forward to continue the great work done by EV Power and are determined to offer an even better service to the customers", says Jan Haugen Ihle from Fortum Charge & Drive.

The pricing model of the acquired chargers will be changed to price per minute. "Fortum sees that price per minute is best for the customers, as it leads to shorter waiting times", says Haugen.
