Royal Schiphol Group places 400 up to 10.000 new charging points for electric vehicles, spread over the various Royal Schiphol Group airports. The charging stations are of great importance to realize emission-free airports in 2030. As part of this, all vehicles will be electric: from ground handling to hotel shuttles and everything in between.
The tendering process for the supply of charging stations has been completed and awarded to Ecotap and Combinatie FIMIH. There are now approximately 400 so-called public EV charging points at Schiphol. More charging points for all vehicles
Currently, electric passenger cars for the most part use the charging points. With this award, the capacity for these users will be considerably increased in the coming years. In addition, these new contracts also offer possibilities to provide charging capacity for electric trucks, buses and ground handling vehicles.
In addition to expanding the number of charging stations, Royal Schiphol Group has entered into a tender entered into a partnership with Combination FIMIH for the management of the charging stations. Combination FIMIH supplies a smart digital platform with partner Maxem. With the arrival of this Chargepoint Operator (CPO) platform, all charging facilities can be centrally monitored and controlled. The digital CPO platform makes it possible to smartly control charging facilities and even link them to energy generated by solar panels at the airports. This is so that overloading the energy grid is avoided and users can charge sustainably generated energy when the sun is shining. Most sustainable airports
These investments contribute to Royal Schiphol Group’s ambition to become the most to operate sustainable airports in the world. In addition, it improves the infrastructure of the airport, the use of electric vehicles contributes to local air quality and strengthens Schiphol’s position as a ‘Smart Airport City’, in which consideration is given, among other things, to sustainable generation, distribution and delivery of energy at Schiphol.
