A protected area in Croatia is the first in Europe to introduce a multiformat charger for electric cars.

The management of the Public Institute of Krka National Park purchased five electric and hybrid vehicles and introduced the accompanying unit last week. It financed the project through the Green Line programme of the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund (FZOEU) and the Ministry of Environment and Nature Protection. The project is intended for public institutes managing protected areas, national parks, and nature parks.

The cars, which cost EUR 159,000, were 80% co-financed by the FZOEU. They consume power worth about HRK 10 (EUR 1.34) per 60 kilometres. The existing one at Lozovac and the next one at the new information centre at Laškovica above Roški slap are financed from own funds with EUR 53,400. The plan is to install two more after that and, furthermore, to replace all the buses for visitors with environmentally friendly vehicles.

The electric vehicle filling infrastructure is a Terra DC 53 multi-standard 50 kW modular station for rapid filling with one, two or three plugs in multi-protocol – CCS, CHAdeMO and rapid AC. “The filling stations are equipped with internet applications that enable customers to simply hook up their devices to a range of software systems such as databases, payment platforms or intelligent energy network systems. This enables remote monitoring, maintenance and functionality add-ons. The working temperature is from -35°C to +50°C,” stated Aleksandar Radosavljević, representative of ABB d.o.o., the Swedish-Swiss company’s subsidiary based in Zagreb. According to the latest data, there are more than a hundred filling stations in Croatia, with an intensive growth trend, the national park’s statement said.

The area lies within the Šibenik-Knin County and covers a total area of 109 square kilometres of Krka river’s basin and the lower course of the Čikola river.
