Enel X Romania, part of Enel X, the advanced energy services division of Enel Group, installed the first six charging stations for electric vehicles in the city of Constanța. The network developed by the company in Romania thus reached 53 stations, respectively 106 charging points.
“We actively support Romanians who opt for electric mobility by expanding the network of charging stations for electric vehicles in Romania, enabling drivers to enjoy greater flexibility and improved access to the electric charging infrastructure, in line with our commitment to facilitate clean and sustainable transport,” said Mihai Mardale, Head of e-Mobility Enel X Romania .
Based on a partnership with the Constanța City Hall, the six charging stations are in areas easily accessible to drivers, while the investment in the equipment and the costs of installation and maintenance are fully supported by Enel X.
Four of the stations are JuicePole-type and are located on Unirii and Fulgerului-Dezrobirii streets, at the Military Hospital and in the multi-storey car park of the Constanța County Hospital. With a power of 2 x 22 kW AC, each of the stations allows the simultaneous recharging of two electric vehicles and the charging of up to 40% of the battery in 30 minutes, depending on the car model and specifications. Two other JuicePump-type stations are located on Pandurului Street – Mangalia Road and in the Tomis Port parking lot. Each charging station allows the recharging of two electric vehicles at the same time with a power of 50 kW DC and 22 kW AC respectively. When using direct current (DC), charging of up to 80% of the battery takes about 25 minutes, depending on the car model and specifications.
Drivers can recharge their vehicles at Enel X stations using the new version of the JuicePass mobile application – the unique interface for Enel X customers through which they can access a network of over 95,000 public charging points in 18 European countries. The application can be downloaded from Google Play or App Store, and the installation guide can be accessed on enelx.ro.
Drivers can check the location and status of Enel X charging points on an interactive map either in the JuicePass app or on the website here.
Enel X Romania has the largest public e-Mobility infrastructure plan in the country, which includes the installation of approx. 2,500 charging points across all regions, involving an overall investment between 15 and 20 million euros. The plan aims at adapting to the development of EV use in the country, at household and institutional level, as well as among businesses, through the demand from fleet owners.
Enel X Romania installs charging infrastructure within the “Recharge Partners” spaces – shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants and hotels that want to attract electric car users. The installation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure comes at no cost to the company’s Recharge Partners in exchange for the availability of parking spaces.
The company is also offering a similar service to municipalities that are interested in improving air quality by encouraging electric mobility. Enel X Romania helps local authorities identify the most appropriate solutions and provides the installation and maintenance of the charging infrastructure at no cost, on public parking spaces.
Enel X Romania also offers call center services in order to assist drivers who charge their vehicles at its charging points; they can call for assistance at 031.4032.231, from Monday to Sunday, between 08:00 – 24:00.
The company applies a tariff model allowing drivers to charge their electric vehicles starting from 1.29 lei/recharging unit (1 recharging unit = 1 kWh).
