News

PragmaCharge announced its first Spanish heavy-duty electric truck charging hub near the Port of Valencia, featuring 40 fast chargers.

PragmaCharge has announced its first Spanish heavy-duty electric truck charging hub, just 3.5 km outside Port of Valencia. The new charging hub is in MercaValencia, home to over 40 logistics companies and 500+ daily truck movements.

A new 15,000 m2 PragmaCharge hub next to the Port of Valencia, with safe and secure parking for 60+ heavy-duty electric trucks, will include 40 Combined Charging System fast chargers delivering up to 400 kW of power, and capable of charging trucks in 45 minutes to coincide with legally required rest for drivers.

MercaValencia is a Spanish State-owned company, part of the “Mercasa” network of wholesalers. It is the largest logistic hub for food and agricultural products, mainly fish, meat, vegetables, fruits and flowers, of the Valencia region.

The site has 500,000 m2 of warehouses and other services, housing over 200 agro companies, 5,000 workers and annual sales of EUR1.15 billion. Supplying over 1.2 million customers annually, the volume of heavy-duty trucks running in and out of MercaValencia is over 500 daily.

The Port of Valencia handles more than 40% of shipping container traffic in Spain, making it one of the most important logistics hubs for land transport. Charging services from PragmaCharge’s charging hub will support the Port of Valencia to reduce its Scope 3 emissions.

Javier Serratosa, Managing Director of PragmaCharge, said: “We plan on being operational in MercaValencia by 2025. Furthermore, we are expanding our Spanish presence in areas such as Barcelona, Zaragoza and Madrid.”
