Heliox Multi-Standard Charging System

Heliox has developed a new charging system for e-buses. It is multi-standard charging system that allows different e-buses to charge with one Heliox fast charger independent of the normal interface they use for charging. Vehicles that use Bus-Up pantographs and those that use the Oppcharge system can use the same Heliox charger which automatically switch from one to the other.

Sales Lentz and Heliox have installed the Multi-Standard Charging System as it is called, in the city of Bascharage, Luxembourg in the Sales Lentz depot . The inauguration was attended by Luxembourg’s Secretary of State of the Economy, Francine Closener. She said that thanks to the win-win partnership of Heliox and Sales-Lentz, the Grand Duchy is one of the front-runners of e-mobility in Europe.

Sales-Lentz has always been an early adopter of new technologies. “We understand our role as a public transport operator to trigger our suppliers, bus manufacturers, software developers, to deliver and develop technologies that meet the market needs. Sales-Lentz sees itself as a development partner and an entrepreneur ready to invest in sustainable mobility,” said General Director Sales-Lentz Technics, Georges Hilbert.

Heliox and Sales-Lentz have worked together now for some years. “Heliox sees that with the experience of the Luxembourg projects the transportation sector throughout Europe is turning further towards alternative forms of mobility and our reliable and robust innovations are well-received”, says Koen van Haperen, Business Development Manager Heliox.

Heliox says it is global market leader in fast charging systems within public transport, e-truck, marine, mining and port equipment. It delivers a unique combination of CCS depot charging systems from 25 to 150kW and Opportunity Charge System with a power up to 600kW.

Heliox operates on a global level with headquarters in the Netherlands and local offices in the UK, Australia, Singapore and India.
