MINSK, 27 December (BelTA) – With a high degree of manufacturing localization enterprises run by the Belarusian Industry Ministry make equipment, which allows setting up superfast electric vehicle charging complexes and adjusting the scale of standard solutions on foreign markets. Belarusian Deputy Industry Minister Aleksandr Yefimov made the statement after Belorusneft inaugurated a superfast electric vehicle charging complex in Minsk on 27 December, BelTA has learned.
The Belarusian industrial group Belorusneft is in charge of setting up and operating EV charging stations in Belarus.
Aleksandr Yefimov said: “In combination with competences for manufacturing passenger electric vehicles and dynamically advancing avenues in the area of production of electric trucks and electric cars this fact enables excellent conditions for Belarusian companies to explore their own niches in emerging markets.”
The pilot project is unparalleled in Belarus and the Commonwealth of Independent States. It was implemented by using technologies and equipment of Belarus' largest industrial enterprises – Belkommunmash, MAZ, BelGee, Vityas, METZ, and CNIITU.
The decision to scale up the project onto the entire territory of Belarus has already been made. It will keep the largest industrial enterprises busy.
This product is innovative and has a high export potential. “Industrial enterprises are interested in and ready for selling charging stations and electric transport abroad. Experts expect the electric vehicle market to grow fast. Unique R&D products of Belarusian industrial enterprises will surely be in demand in this field,” Aleksandr Yefimov stressed.
BelTA reported earlier that a superfast electric vehicle charging complex was inaugurated in Minsk on 27 December. The facility comprises parking spots for charging electric cars, a parking spot for charging electrobuses, an electricity accumulation buffer system, a dynamic power distribution module, and a self-service shop.
The superfast electric vehicle charging complex has eight units for charging electric cars. An electric car owner will need only 10 minutes to charge an electric car enough for driving 300km. The power accumulation system, control equipment, and software were developed in Belarus.
