TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ZOOZ Power (TASE: ZOOZ), a leading provider of flywheel-based power boosting solutions for the EV charging infrastructure market, announces the successful installation and initiation of a fast-charging station for electric vehicles (EVs), supported by ZOOZ’s power booster, the ZOOZTER™-100, at a Scotchman gas station and convenience store, operated by a subsidiary of ARKO Corp., in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
This fast charging station, supported by the ZOOZTER™-100, ZOOZ’s innovative kinetic (flywheel-based) Power Booster, was established and will be operated as part of a joint pilot with ARKO Corp. one of the largest convenience store operators in the US, and in cooperation with ABM, a leader in eMobility design, installation, and maintenance solutions.
ZOOZ Power and its partners have successfully completed the Site Acceptance Tests (SAT) on Thursday, September 7th, 2023, and a run-in period of several weeks began. During this period, the charging station will operate commercially and will allow fast charging services to owners of electric vehicles visiting the site, while the Company and its partners will monitor the site, ensuring proper operation of the charging station.
Boaz Weizer, ZOOZ Power’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are proud to have the first commercially operational site in North America and demonstrate our innovative Power Booster, the ZOOZTER™-100, enabling ultra-fast charging of electric vehicles, while overcoming the grid’s power-limitations. This is a significant milestone as we accelerate our penetration into the U.S. market. I would like to congratulate the wonderful ZOOZ team and to thank our partners at ARKO Corp., one of the largest U.S. convenience store operators, and ABM, who worked with us over the last year to achieve this milestone.
We recently announced a pilot installation at New York’s LaGuardia Airport and additional pilot projects with the New York Power Authority and a large car rental agency. Our collaboration with reputable large-scale U.S.-based companies strengthens our position as the industry’s trailblazer.”
In the coming years, the U.S. mobility market is expected to experience an accelerated adoption of electric vehicles, supported by the tailwind of the federal government plans to push forward the transition to electric vehicles and enhance the establishment of widespread charging infrastructure for EVs.
ZOOZ Power intends to use the site, in Rock Hill, SC, for demonstrations of a first-of-its-kind charging station in North America, where the Company will be presenting its “green” kinetic Power Booster, the ZOOZTER™-100, geared to enable ultra-fast charging, even in locations where the grid is power-constrained.
