Caverion and IONITY have established an international service partnership.

Caverion will be responsible for the service and maintenance of transformers at the electric vehicle (EV) high power charging stations in Norway, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Ionity’s 350-kW charging stations are located along major highways and allow drivers to charge EVs in less than 20 minutes, depending on the capacity of their battery.

“Ionity’s goal is to build a high power charging network along major highways in Europe,” said Ionity Regional head of EU North, Jan Haugen Ihle. “We look for international partners who can offer us reliable, professional and fast service with consistent quality.

“We have worked with Caverion in Norway and based on our experience, we were ready to take the next step in our partnership.”

Operations are centrally managed by Caverion and carried out by local experts in each country. Currently, Caverion is also installing new charging stations for Ionity in Norway and Sweden.

“E-mobility provides an exciting growth opportunity for Caverion, matching with our strong capabilities in the area of smart technologies,” added VP Services Business Development, Laura Karotie.

Ionity is a joint venture of BMW, Ford, Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche.

It has more than 400 charging stations along major European highways.
