Copenhagen Airport (CPH) is set to become Denmark’s largest electric vehicle charging site over the next 10 years.
As part of a long-term agreement, charging infrastructure specialist ABB is supplying 1,350 chargers to the airport in partnership with energy group EWII.
Copenhagen Airport (CPH), which aims to achieve carbon-neutrality in operations by 2030, had an average of 83,000 passengers passing through the terminals daily pre-pandemic in 2019, many of them taking advantage of one of the more than 14,000 parking spaces at the airport.
Some of them are already equipped with electric charging stations, but the trend shows that the need will grow over the coming years. CPH is responding to this need in close cooperation with EWII.
“It will not only serve as inspiration for other airports in Denmark but also in other countries and that it will again demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of clean, quiet and flexible electric mobility”
CPH was looking for a holistic EV charging solution for travelers and employees parking on site. The solution also needed to serve vehicles in need of faster charging including taxis dropping off travelers and businesses operating inside the airport handling transportation, luggage and catering.
“We are pleased to support CPH in their sustainable transition with our broad portfolio of quality and professional charging solutions,” said Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility. “We are convinced that it will not only serve as inspiration for other airports in Denmark but also in other countries and that it will again demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of clean, quiet and flexible electric mobility.”
