By harnessing Electreon's wireless charging technology, EVs can now charge seamlessly while parked, idling, and also on the move. This effectively eliminates range limitations, and reduces EV operational costs in the bid to decarbonise road and freight transport.

Ginaf is a specialist in the development and production of special and efficient transport solutions based on DAF and Mercedes-Benz vehicles, amongst other conversions and retrofits to electric powered propulsion. This time, the company is elevating its e-truck value proposition by integrating Electreon's wireless charging system with the Ginaf GE2121 truck (a modified DAF XF). The 'wireless truck' has undergone testing on both Electreon's stationary wireless charging station (charging while idle) and its dynamic wireless electric road - charging while driving.

"Ginaf is very pleased with the results of the truck's excellent performance on the world's first public electric road: Electreon's Smartroad in Gotland," said Roeland van der Woude, Ginaf CEO. "It endorses our capabilities as a flexible and qualitative alternative to OEMs, for transport companies that want to make their 7-50+ ton trucks more sustainable."

Electreon and Ginaf are now poised to implement aftermarket installations on additional Ginaf trucks, based on DAF or Mercedes-Benz chassis, and will be available for future Electreon projects, encompassing both static and dynamic charging capabilities.

In a further display of their commitment to electric transportation, Electreon and Ginaf have joined forces with Rearq, a Swedish company specialising in circular economic practices - aiming to reuse current internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles on the market and converting them into EVs. Together, they aim to drive sales of electric trucks in Nordic markets and lead the charge in the race to the net-zero carbon emissions future.

"The joint collaboration in this project proves that we can accelerate the change to sustainable transportation solutions, by integrating smart charging technology with electric vehicles and thereby increasing the benefits when shifting to 100% electric," says Henrik Wallström, CEO of Rearq.
