JEMA supplied 15 charging infrastructures I2E family for the first fully electric bus units in Madrid

Published on

EMT Madrid, the public transport operator in the Spanish capital and member of the ASSURED Public Transport User Group, has added to its daily operation in January 2018 15 fully electric buses. This is the first milestone in the electromobility roadmap of the city.

JEMA´s equipment charges the buses overnight, enabling a complete operation of up to 16 hours. The selected solution is the I2E 80, an outdoor solution of 80 kW with Combo 2 plug.

The I2E family can operate in different grid conditions and can charge batteries with a maximum voltage of 900 V. The design is based on an IGBT topology, making possible bidirectional energy flow. A second order filter is used to avoid grid disturbances during full power system operation.

We are glad to see the first fully electric bus units in Madrid supplied by one of the ASSURED Partners. Congratulations to JEMA and to EMT Madrid for bringing electric buses a step further into public transport!
