JOLT and Tamoil bring ultra-fast EV charg­ing to Tamoil sta­tions in the Netherlands

JOLT and Tamoil Ned­er­land are pleased to announce their agree­ment to equip up to 33 urban Tamoil ser­vice sta­tions in the Nether­lands with JOLT’s Mer­li­nOne Ultra Fast charg­ing sta­tions start­ing in 2022.

“The col­lab­o­ra­tion with JOLT marks the begin­ning of a rapid tran­si­tion to ser­vice for our grow­ing e‑mobility cus­tomer base. The Mer­li­nOne Ultra-Fast Charg­er is a key enabler for us to flex­i­bly expand our e‑mobility offer­ing and over­come the chal­lenge of a lengthy and cost­ly grid upgrade. We are look­ing for­ward to embark­ing on this e‑journey togeth­er with JOLT,” says Ronald Kem­pen, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Tamoil Ned­er­land B.V..

The Mer­li­nOne charg­ing sta­tion was designed and devel­oped by JOLT specif­i­cal­ly for charg­ing sit­u­a­tions in cities where the exist­ing pow­er grid makes it dif­fi­cult to pro­vide ultra-fast charg­ing. “Once the project is oper­a­tional, dri­vers will be able to recharge their week­ly dri­ving needs in 10 to 15 min­utes, a sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment over exist­ing home and road charg­ing alter­na­tives,” said Mau­rice Neli­gan, CEO of JOLT.

Tamoil has been active in the Dutch fuel mar­ket for more than 70 years. The com­pa­ny cur­rent­ly oper­ates 225 ser­vice sta­tions in the Nether­lands, giv­ing it a mar­ket share of more than 5 %.. The com­pa­ny invests in sus­tain­abil­i­ty and is social­ly com­mit­ted. For exam­ple, Tamoil 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. Tamoil is part of the Oil­in­vest Group, an oil com­pa­ny with ser­vice sta­tions in Italy, Ger­many, Switzer­land, Spain and the Nether­lands. The head office of Tamoil Ned­er­land B.V. is locat­ed in Ridderkerk.

JOLT Ener­gy Group is a Dublin, Munich and Boston-based group found­ed in 2017 by a team of for­mer auto­mo­tive and ener­gy exec­u­tives with the goal of chang­ing the tra­di­tion­al con­ven­tions of urban charg­ing. JOLT aims to build a net­work of ultra-fast charg­ing sta­tions in major cities over the next decade. JOLT uses advanced mobile charg­ing sta­tions with inte­grat­ed bat­ter­ies to over­come the weak­ness­es of the exist­ing pow­er grid. In some cas­es, this means plac­ing charg­ing sta­tions on city streets like bat­ter­ies and replac­ing them with fresh­ly charged units when they run out.

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.
