Strong demand for rapid charging

UK demand for rapid battery charging systems is mushrooming, according to Hoppecke Industrial Batteries.

Rapid charging systems are suited to operations that use trucks 24 hours a day but not continuously over that period. A rapid charge set up doesn’t need stocks of spare batteries and allows some operators to move from gas fuelled trucks to electric trucks where running costs can be three and a half times less.
