- An initial deployment has been carried out in 14 cities with 144 already operational charging stations in 36 car parks
Saba and Bamsa, leading companies in the development of urban mobility solutions, have signed an agreement with Endesa—through Endesa X, its new business line that offers added-value services and innovative technological solutions in energy—which includes the deployment of up to 400 charging stations in around 50 car parks in its network.
Thanks to this partnership, the energy company will be responsible for the charging of electric vehicles in the car park networks of Saba and Bamsa, a public-private capital company, 60% of which is owned by Saba and 40% by the Barcelona City Council.
Saba and Bamsa, who will manage the development and investment of this charging network operated by Endesa, have established a first phase with a total of 144 charging stations in 36 car parks—18 in the Saba network and 18 in the Bamsa network—that are already operational. The charging stations use semi-fast technology, at 22 kW, operating with the universal connector for this type of charge, and open to any customer, both short-stay and subscribers, who usually park in the Saba and Bamsa car parks and who will enjoy advantageous commercial conditions.
For the Saba group, this project is a continuation of the company’s mission in recent years to incorporate different mobility models and new added-value services in its car parks, which it understands as service hubs, aware that adapting to the times means being open to change and introducing new technologies to improve customer service. In this regard, the progressive rise of the electric vehicle is reflected in a greater number of adapted parking spaces to anticipate the demand. Thanks to this agreement with Endesa, Saba will increase its number of charging stations in its car parks in 2019, depending on the available subsidies and the demand trends.
