ADS-TEC Energy continues to advance in the Netherlands: joint venture as part of NXT Mobility / GP Groot wins tender for the northwest of the country

  • NXT 50five, the joint venture between 50five and NXT Mobility as part of the GP Groot initiative, has won the MRA-Electric tender to install and operate public rapid charging stations supplied by ADS-TEC Energy
  • The tender covers the installation, management and operation of rapid charging points at up to 600 locations
  • Most of the MRA-E area faces network congestion, making it ideal for battery-buffered rapid charging solutions from ADS-TEC Energy
  • NXT 50five is already preparing the installation for the first nine of up to 200 rapid charging stations

Rapid charging stations from ADS-TEC Energy (NASDAQ: ADSE) will soon be more widely available in the Dutch provinces of Noord-Holland, Utrecht and Flevoland as NXT 50five wins a tender from the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam – Electric (MRA-E).

This is the first time that municipalities in the Netherlands have come together to launch a joint tender for rapid charging stations. More than three-quarters of the 74 communities in the northwest region are involved in this new milestone in the implementation of a nationwide rapid charging network for electric vehicles.

NXT 50five’s success demonstrates the benefits of battery-buffered rapid charging solutions from ADS-TEC Energy, as unlike conventional rapid charging stations, they are suitable for many more locations and can be connected anywhere with minimal effort.

Intelligent solution for areas with network congestion

The majority of the MRA-E area faces network congestion. Given the increasing demand for electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure these require, NXT 50five can meet the challenges of limited networks using ADS-TEC Energy products. The ultra-fast platform solutions from ADS-TEC Energy are battery-buffered and enable rapid charging speeds even on limited grids.

Erik Metselaar, Director of NXT Mobility, says: “This technology enables us to lead the transition to sustainable mobility, even in areas where the electricity grid does not allow it. It is a game changer for the rollout of our network and for the future of electric driving in the Netherlands.”

NXT 50five is one of the three companies awarded the concession, along with Shell and TotalEnergies. Over a period of four years, the joint venture will equip up to 200 locations. Implementation has already started, with NXT 50five currently preparing the installation of the first nine stations.

Thomas Speidel, CEO of ADS-TEC Energy: “Winning this tender highlights the appeal of our products. Our technology allows rapid charging infrastructure to be rolled out much faster. We’re delighted with the positive synergies resulting from this joint venture. Together, we’re accelerating our vision and commitment to a sustainable mobility transition.”
