Continest Technologies, Partners Present Mobile EV Charging Station
Hungary's Continest Technologies, which makes foldable containers that can be used as temporary accommodations, offices, or first aid stations, presented a mobile, modular EV charging station with partners Hotta Green Energy and Alteo group member Alte-Go in Székesfehérvár (65 km southwest of Budapest) yesterday, according to autopro.hu.
Continest Technologies founder and CEO Vidor Kis-Márton said the company, which can turn out 2,400 foldable containers a year, is already working with partners in Norway and the Benelux countries on the mobile charging station and wants to enter more foreign markets.
The charging station, dubbed Conte-Go, is the size of a ten-foot container and can charge three vehicles at once. The charging station sells for about HUF 9 million, Continest Technologies chief of strategy Dániel Tegzes said.
The company is also working on a 20-foot version that can charge five EVs at once, he added. Continest Technologies had net revenue of HUF 3.6 billion last year, Kis-Márton said.
