Petrotec presents product that combines electric mobility & environmental sustainability
PFAST – new electric charger to change the future of fuel
PFAST - electric vehicle charging equipment - is a Petrotec product that will expedite the switch from existing forecourt businesses to the future concept of electric mobility. Petrotec uses cutting-edge technologies combined with the all-important concepts of environmental sustainability and presents a product that will boost the market.
PFast, developed in accordance with the CHAdeMO standard, is in line with the Fast-Charge equipment for electric vehicles. This equipment is designed to charge 80% of battery capacity within time spans between 20 and 30 minutes. The system monitors the battery during the charging process and supplies the maximum amount of energy.
The product relies on a partnership with MagnumCAP, a Portuguese company which specialises in the development of solutions for the management and provision of electric energy and is integrated in the MOBI.E electric mobility program.
Implications on the Market
PFast can be combined with traditional fuel pumps currently in use, allowing an easy and gradual transition in the number of equipments per fuel station without the need for construction works (assuming appropriate electrical infrastructure). The early adoption of this solution gives added value to fuel stations, can boost forecourt sales and prepares them for the future.
"Petrotec wants to be part of the future of fuel stations, so it has developed a product that follows the current trends and technologies, specially geared towards places which have a large incidence of short stopovers, as service stations with forecourt businesses" - Mário Nova, Director of Engineering and Product Development at Petrotec.
