JOLT brings ultra-fast charging to the Netherlands-jolt

Jolt is now bringing it to the Netherlands as part of his ChargeMyCity campaign. From 2022, together with Tamoil Nederland, up to 33 Tamoil filling stations will be equipped with MerlinOne Ultra-Fast charging stations. Tamoil has been active in the Dutch fuel market for more than 70 years and has a network of 225 filling stations, of which more than ten percent will now be equipped with an ultra-fast charging station.

The focus is on the company’s own quick-charging station, Merlin. This sees itself as a kind of power bank for the car: A power storage device is charged and can then – with a time delay – release this energy to a connected consumer. Merlin was developed in Germany specifically for charging situations in cities where the existing power grid makes it extremely difficult to provide DC fast charging stations. These advantages can now be expanded in the Netherlands: “Once the project is operational, drivers will be able to charge their weekly driving needs in 10 to 15 minutes, a significant improvement compared to the existing charging alternatives at home and on the road Street,” says Maurice Neligan, CEO of JOLT.

“Working with JOLT marks the beginning of a rapid transition to service for our growing e-mobility customer base. The MerlinOne Ultra-Fast Charger is an important prerequisite for us to be able to flexibly expand our range of e-mobility and to overcome the challenge of a lengthy and costly upgrade of the power grid. We look forward to going on this e-journey together with JOLT.– Ronald Kempen, Managing Director of Tamoil Nederland B.V.

For Tamoil, working with Jolt represents an investment in sustainability. The company currently offers its customers sustainable fuels at a large number of filling stations and produces green electricity for its filling station network with its share in Zonnepark XXL in Assen. This collaborative project with Tamoil is part of JOLT’s ChargeMyCity campaign, which aims to promote mobility transformation in communities by bringing together property owners, financiers and charging station operators in regional charging projects.

  1. This shows once again how we have gradually lost the technological edge over the past 16 years, especially in terms of implementation. Something is being developed in Germany and implemented in other countries. See PV modules, batteries, EEG, etc.
    It’s a shame that the lobby set us back so far, especially in the area of electricity suppliers.
