Milence, the joint venture between Daimler Truck, the TRATON GROUP and Volvo Group, announces its second charging hub in France

The new charging hub is located in the city of Perpignan, under the administration of the Perpignan Town Hall.

Anja van Niersen, CEO of Milence, says: “This new site in Perpignan will enhance our presence along key corridors, supporting electric road transport between key logistics hubs in the south of France and towards Spain.”

“Our commitment to building a sustainable charging infrastructure across Europe is clear and each new development is a strong step forward,” she adds.

This strategically positioned hub has a significant geographical advantage.

It is situated close to the A9 highway, a strategic logistics route connecting Spain with France and northern Europe.

The hub will be developed in phases.

In phase one, scheduled for September 2024, charging infrastructure will be built alongside on-site facilities such as toilets and showers.

Initially, the hub will feature three Combined Charging System (CCS) charging points powering six bays with up to 400 kilowatts of charging power.

This will be further supplemented in the second phase of development, to increase capacity by adding additional Megawatt Charging System (MCS) charging points.

This will significantly boost charging speed and enhance the capacity of the charging hub.

When completed, the hub will feature the unique Milence arch and canopies as well as additional facilities for the drivers. 

The charging hubs are open to all trucks, regardless of brand, and the Milence app allows drivers to easily locate them and make payments.

The hubs are designed not only to meet the energy requirements of electric trucks but also to enhance the overall rest and recharge experience for drivers.

This announcement follows the opening of Milence’s first charging hub in France, located near Rouen, in April 2024.

Both hubs embody Milence’s commitment to a fossil-free future for road transport.

To achieve this, the firm is actively developing its network to create green corridors for road transport.
