Amply Power launches containerized EV charging infrastructure solution

Amply Power has announced Inrush, a containerized infrastructure system for EV charging. The first deployment of this customer-ready solution is occurring with Amply’s long-standing customer, the Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN). Through this agreement, Amply will design, construct and operate a charging facility leveraging Inrush charging capsules and Amply’s Omega Charge Management System to support ATN’s entire electric fleet of 46 transit buses for two years.

The company says Inrush provides superior cost-effectiveness and flexibility over traditional fixed charging infrastructure. The containerized charging capsule allows customers to utilize semi-permanent, portable charging to account for unpredictable changes in operations. The electrical switchgear needed for charging is located inside of an upcycled shipping container, which is pre-built offsite.

Amply says design, procurement and installation costs for the container solution are expected to be roughly 50% less expensive than traditional infrastructure. The setup process takes about six months from start to finish, 50% less time than with traditional infrastructure, the company adds.

To provide charging capabilities in an accelerated timeline while ATN’s permanent all-electric facility is being planned, Amply led efforts to identify a site to temporarily serve ATN’s fleet of 35-, 40-, and 60-ft. buses. Disney’s Toy Story parking lot, which services Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, was chosen as the ultimate destination for the Inrush solution.

ATN’s charging facility will include two Inrush shipping containers, each equipped with five chargers capable of charging 10 buses simultaneously, including two 200kW chargers for more power-intensive 60-ft. buses. As part of its Charging-as-a-Service agreement with ATN, the facility will be fully supported by Amply’s Omega Charge Management System (CMS) and technical support services. Omega integrates third-party systems that manage routes, maintenance, and scheduling to guarantee 99.99% EV fleet uptime, monitored in real-time through Amply’s Command Center dashboard, the company says.
