WattEV HD sets grand opening for charging depot

The WattEV charging depot features 5MW of initial capacity for concurrent charging of 26 trucks from its 360KW chargers.

WattEV will celebrate the grand opening of its charging station for electric heavy-duty trucks at the Port of Long Beach on Monday, July 24.

Branded simply as “WattEV,” the depot is located directly adjacent to the Pier-A terminal in the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and will serve heavy-duty electric trucks with routes connecting to inland destinations throughout Southern California. The WattEV charging depot features 5MW of initial capacity for concurrent charging of 26 trucks from its 360KW chargers.

The POLB project is the first of several WattEV electric truck charging depots in the works throughout California, including warehouse districts in nearby Gardena, inland near San Bernardino, and north in Bakersfield, the company said. The WattEV POLB Depot will serve as the southern anchor of WattEV’s planned electric-truck charging freight corridor, which will incrementally connect to major freight routes throughout the West.

The new charging depot will serve WattEV’s growing fleet of electric trucks operating on its Truck-as-a-Service platform hauling freight to and from the combined ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, which receive some 40% of the nation’s containerized imports.
