The Swedish leading transport operator of Byberg & Nordin has adopted this first ever European CCS Charged Electric Bus standard in to their fleet.
The Dutch OEM VDL Bus & Coach delivered their Citea Electric Bus with Heliox CCS-compliant DC Fast Charger.
The CCS-standard protocol is by the industry seen as the best fit for e-bus charging. This also includes CCS-plug derivatives, such as conductive opportunity charge systems like pantographs. An electric-bus charging standard will be largely based on the recently adopted global DC fast-charging standards for passenger cars, according to Heliox.
Heliox strongly supports CCS Combined Charging System (IEC 15118 & IEC61851-23/24 / DIN 70121) as well as OCPP protocol standards, as the company is convinced charger and vehicle interoperability is key for further successful adaptation of electric vehicles in public transport.
Designed for commercial & captive fleets, the Heliox Fast DC Charger series can recharge electric vehicles with 43kW – 120kW with CCS connection.
Heliox Fast DC chargers are designed for ultra fast DC charging of public transport vehicles running with 700V systems and Pantograph/CCS/MODE4 connection and come as permanent installed depot charger or mobile version.
