Truck cover manufacturer Worksport has added two electric vehicle fast-charging stations at its factory in West Seneca, New York.
Worksport subsidiary Terravis Energy completed installation of the 120-kWh stations after starting work in January. The two direct-current fast chargers are also equipped with two combined charging standward (CCS1) connectors, also known as pistols.
According to Terravis, the production-level EV fast charging systems are modular and provide EV drivers with real-time analytic information on a seven-inch LCD. They also come with intelligent network communication capabilities, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular connectivity and RFID/NFC.
The charging systems also offer a human-machine interface and advanced safety features such as overcurrent and overheating protection to ensure the charging process is safe and efficient, the company adds. Additionally, these systems are said to be equipped with waterproof and dustproof technology, as well as a “robust” and weather-resistant enclosure.
The company says it plans to install additional DC fast chargers, rated at a minimum of 240 kWh, in the near future.
“Our EV chargers will be equipped with a high-power charging system, capable of providing fast-charging speeds of up to 280 kWh, allowing for a quick and efficient charging process, and feature advanced energy management capabilities that optimize energy usage for cost savings,” Lorenzo Rossi, CEO of Terravis Energy said.
Canada-based Worksport, through its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, and owns the IP on a variety of tonneau covers, solar integrations, and H2 NP green energy solutions for clean energy and automotive industries.
