Anas (Italian national road company) has started the project for the installation of charging columns for electric cars in the service areas of motorways operated on the national territory.

The project started with the publication of calls for tenders for the assignment of service area concessions which provide for the fast electric recharging points on the A2 ‘Autostrada del Mediterraneo’, on the A19 ‘Palermo-Catania’ and in 10 areas of service along the A90 ‘Grande Raccordo Anulare di Roma’ and A91 ‘Rome-Fiumicino Airport’ motorways.

Currently, the recharge service is already available at Rome’s Grande Raccordo Anulare, one of the busiest arteries in Italy with peaks of 168,000 vehicles per day.

“The project – said the CEO of Anas, Massimo Simonini – confirms the commitment of Anas for the development of the national plan for electric and sustainable mobility”.

In addition to traditional fuels (petrol, diesel), the tenders provide that the concessionaires also provide fast electric vehicle charging in all service areas as well as the supply of LPG and CNG. As far as the electric recharging service is concerned, provision is made for “multi-standard” columns that combine industrial standards and high power charging technologies.
