On March 27th, ACS completed the delivery of ten charging stations to Destination Gotland’s new ferry, M/S Visborg. In addition to the charging stations and the cables, the order also comprised tailor-made transformers. To fulfil the requirements regarding charging on ro-pax ferries, the equipment was selected with outmost care and the equipment and the installations made by ACS have been approved by the classification society DNV-GL. The charging stations were delivered from The Netherlands by Dutch company Alfen N.V., one of the forerunners within manufacturing of electrical vehicle charging equipment. The charging system also enables an integrated payment system and is according to our knowledge the first of its kind in the world to be installed on a ro-pax ferry.
12.10.2018 marks the first year of ACS as a company. The first year was extremely eventful, during which the number of employees was doubled and the representation of 11 new suppliers and over 14 different product brands got its beginning. The company’s sales growth was promising in all three business segments and the forecast for 2019 looks promising.
The project’s common goal is to increase the usage of locally produced
renewable wind power energy and also to provide this for the charging of electric
vehicles. This is possible by providing the charging service providers’ charging
stations with this energy.
