Major new commercial EV charging network
The Hesburger fast food chain will start to offer retail EV charging to its customers across Finland. Hesburger has selected Chago as their technology partner for EV infrastructure. Chago will deliver a range of easy-to-use, fast and quick chargers and professional services.
Chago EV chargers, designed for retail EV charging, including Chago Pro, Chago Station and Chago Power EV charging stations, will be deployed in various locations. The first three restaurants where the retail EV charging service is available are located in Turku, Helsinki, and close to Oulu.
A winning EV infrastructure partnership
Hesburger and Chago are working in partnership with Virta, who provide a commercial back-end system for EV infrastructure. Chago was selected due to our track record as an EV charging station manufacturer and our open approach to smart EV business.
Focus on lower lifetime OPEX cost
Operating costs are a key consideration for any commercial EV charging business. Working together, Hesburger, Virta and Chago developed a cost-effective package of hardware, service and remote management. For customers, Hesburger has an EV charging application that helps make charging fast and easy. Hesburger will also have new opportunities for branding, promotion, and reaching new target audiences with their new EV infrastructure.
New research highlghts that it is important for EV infrastructure owners and EV charger buyers to focus on operating costs. The Aalto University study found: "Over 80% of lifetime EV charger costs are from OPEX".
