- How does EVB improve EV mobility at Valencia airport, one of the top 10 airports in Spain?

MADRID, March 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- With growing global concern over climate change, the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in Spain is increasing rapidly. Airports, as vital transportation hubs, are actively adapting to these trends by exploring innovative business models. In view of this, Valencia Airport in Spain has partnered with EVB (a sub-brand of Beny that focuses on smart charging solutions) to establish a charging station equipped with 80 AC chargers for EVs and 4 DC chargers for EVs, offering convenient charging solutions. The successful execution of this project has revitalized the airport's operations and has marked a significant step in the advancement of electric mobility in Spain.

What are the details of the project? Location: Valencia, Spain. Products: The airport has added 4 BADC82-D DC EV chargers and 80 BCPC-D2N-P AC EV chargers, offering a wide range of charging options and enabling both fast and slow power replenishment. Results: Installation, testing and operation of the charging station progressed smoothly, with chargers strategically located throughout the airport parking lot, ensuring convenient access for users. This not only increases the airport's service standards but also encourages a positive impact on environmentally conscious travel.

What do we know about Valencia Airport? Located in the city of Valencia in eastern Spain, Valencia Airport functions as a vital international hub, facilitating important air traffic and logistics activities. Recent Aena data for 2023 indicate 9.95 million passenger movements, 82,000 aircraft operations and 13.65 million tons of cargo, which places it among the ten busiest airports in Spain. With the rise of electric vehicles, there is a growing demand for parking and charging services. To meet these needs, airport management is upgrading cargo facilities to improve service quality and adapt to changing user preferences.

What drives the need to charge? Whether for convenience, cost-effectiveness or adaptability, an increasing number of EV drivers are choosing to park at the airport and charge their EVs. Depending on the length of parking, airport parking is generally divided into different categories: Long-term parking: Typically selected by travelers embarking on business trips or vacations, and who require extended durations of airport parking, which They range from 1 to 3 days, or even up to half a month to a month. Short-term parking: Commonly chosen by passengers to drop off or pick up friends or family traveling by plane, or for airport visitors, and the parking duration is usually between 1 and 2 hours. Other durations: Airport staff also require parking spaces, usually during their working hours.

How do EVB solutions meet user needs? The EVB team engaged in extensive discussions with airport authorities and provided them with customized electric vehicle charging solutions, catering to various types of parking user groups: For long-term parking: Requirements: Users requiring long parking durations They prioritize remote control and management over loading speed. Furthermore, considering the commercial nature of airport parking, space utilization and investment costs are critical factors. Solutions: EVB's BCPC-D2N-P charger, equipped with double plugs and two charging guns, facilitates the simultaneous charging of two vehicles, optimizing the use of space. Each charging gun offers a charging power of 7.4 kW, adequately meeting the needs of long-term parking users. Additionally, its support for the OCPP1.6J protocol allows users to remotely control the charger via a mobile app, allowing them to manage the charger from anywhere. In particular, these chargers feature a variety of protection features, enhancing charging security and providing users with peace of mind even when they are away from home.

Short-term parking: Requirements: Users who park at the airport for only 1 to 2 hours prioritize rapid power refueling. For the airport, it is crucial to maximize limited space and resources to accommodate more users, along with convenient maintenance. Solutions: EVB's BADC82-D Ground Mount DC Fast Charger features an impressive 82kW charging power, capable of quickly replenishing 444kW of mileage in one hour. Equipped with three loading guns, it allows the simultaneous loading of three vehicles, eliminating waiting times and maximizing the use of resources. With excellent heat dissipation performance and multiple protection functions, it ensures the safety and reliability of the charging process. Additionally, its modular structure facilitates convenient installation and maintenance, ultimately reducing airport maintenance costs. By supporting payment methods such as PayPal and offline transactions, it offers users a convenient, secure and flexible payment experience.

Other durations: Requirements: vary depending on specific circumstances. Solutions: Airport staff can opt for AC chargers if the range is sufficient and choose DC chargers if quick replenishment is required, all depends on their actual needs.

What achievements have been achieved? Improved service delivery: The integration of 84 EVB electric vehicle chargers has increased the airport's service capacity by 172 charging points, significantly improving service quality and strengthening the airport's competitive advantage. Address various demands: These electric vehicle chargers offer a variety of powers and charging modes, meeting the diverse needs of users and enriching their overall experience. Pioneering a novel approach: the airport has moved from a conventional business model to an innovative one. This project has not only increased the airport's parking utilization rate but has also expanded revenue streams, generating revenue from parking fees and fee collections. Champion green travel: The proliferation of charging stations encourages more passengers to opt for electric vehicles, thereby reducing carbon emissions and defending the preservation of the environment.

ConclusionAfter the deployment of the charging station at Valencia Airport, frequent air travelers expressed their satisfaction and stated: "With the installation of charging stations at the airport, my anxiety about range has been eliminated, knowing that my car "It will be fully charged when I return from business trips. Plus, I can conveniently use the fast chargers to recharge my car when I drop my family off at the airport."

This project is a notable success as it meets user requirements, fosters sustainable development, enhances the company's reputation and, most importantly, provides valuable knowledge and experience for similar future efforts in EV charger projects. As the electric vehicle industry advances, EVB remains committed to collaborating with more companies, continually introducing world-class solutions and ensuring that users around the world benefit from increasingly convenient and efficient charging experiences.
