Visualisierung eines großen überdachten Ladeparks
The newly planned charging parks offer up to 16 charging points with a charging capacity of up to 200kW each. Large charging parks - as shown in this visualization - are covered and have sanitary facilities and catering services in the immediate vicinity.

The Deutschlandnetz (“Germany Network”) will ensure a basic supply of HPC (high-power charging) rapid charging infrastructure for electric cars at more than 1,000 locations with around 9,000 charging points in Germany. The consortium consisting of HOCHTIEF and EWE Go, among others, won the award for two lots in six federal states with 850 charging points in the invitation to tender issued by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV).

Each charging point in the Deutschlandnetz must be technically capable of delivering a maximum charging capacity of at least 300 kW. In addition, each charging point must be able to provide a nominal charging capacity of at least 200 kW.

A banking club consisting of KfW IPEX-Bank, Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) and Siemens Financial Services through Siemens Bank is providing HOCHTIEF and EWE Go with tailored project finance in the amount of around EUR 130 million for both lots.

With this financing, KfW IPEX-Bank, LBBW and Siemens Financial Services are supporting the transition to CO2-neutral mobility.

EWE Go is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Oldenburg-based energy service provider EWE AG. In addition to its market leadership in north-west Germany, EWE Go, one of the largest operators of public charging infrastructures, operates more than 2,000 charging points nationwide, a commitment that is constantly on the increase. EWE Go develops mobility concepts, products and services related to electromobility.

HOCHTIEF is one of the largest providers of transport and energy infrastructure. The company plans, finances, builds and operates numerous transport networks itself and places great emphasis on sustainability. Since 2018, the Group has held shares in the leading international toll road operator Abertis, which operates more than 8,000 kilometres of toll roads in 15 countries.

Both companies act as equal partners in the Deutschlandnetz project and are each acquiring 50% of the shares in the project company founded for this purpose.
