This spring, Volvo launched two models of electric trucks for city distribution and waste collection, Volvo FL and Volvo FE. These two trucks are operated within the scope of DenCity, which is managed by CLOSER at Lindholmen Science Park. It is a project that has a multifaceted approach and tangible results will be possible thanks to active commitment from a large number of different partners.
"For DenCity, it is important that this charging station has been installed so that we have the opportunity to evaluate how charging works commercially and the contribution which a charging station can make for range. We also want to evaluate how different vehicles can use the same charging station," says Fredrik Cederstav, Volvo Trucks, responsible for Zero-Emissions Transport within the framework of DenCity.
"It will make a big difference for us. We just have to make sure that it is possible to book times so that we can fully utilise it. We will probably be able to make twice as many runs with each truck in order to be able to use them to the full extent because we can charge the truck here," explains Roger Nilsson, TGM, who is the end customer of the trucks that are currently in operation, but is also a freight carrier running trucks within the scope of DenCity.
