Fastned opens 100th fast charging station in the Netherlands


Today fast charging company Fastned has opened its 100th fast charging station in the Netherlands. It is also Fastned’s first charging station in Rotterdam. At this station, hundreds of electric cars can be charged each day at speeds of up to 300kW.

Councilor Arno Bonte (sustainability, air quality and energy transition) of the Municipality of Rotterdam, together with Michiel Langezaal (CEO and co-founder), officially opened the Fastned station today.

“This 100th station in the Netherlands is a milestone for Fastned. The last years we have worked hard on creating a good infrastructure for electric drivers. With this network, we are making it easier for people to switch to an electric car. Great that the municipality of Rotterdam has made this 100th Fastned station possible.” 
Michiel Langezaal (CEO en mede-oprichter Fastned)
“With this fast charging station we are making the transition to electric driving easier for many drivers including taxis and vans. By doing this we ensure cleaner air and a healthier city.” 
Councilor Arno Bonte (sustainability, air quality and energy transition)


This initiative was made possible with the support of the BENEFIC project, which is part of the European “Connecting Europe Facility” program, funded by the European Commission; and through the DKTI-Transport regulation of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
