Volta Trucks to provide 16 Volta Zeros, charging infrastructure to Heppner in France

Volta Trucks has announced the first implementation of its new full-electric Volta Zero with Truck-as-a-Service charging infrastructure to Heppner, a creator of transport and logistics solutions and an independent leader in international transport from and to France.

The pre-order with deposit from Heppner will see 16 full-electric Volta Zeros operate from the company’s depots in Rungis and La Courneuve in Paris, and Lyon. The agreement also covers the implementation of the electric charging infrastructure to run the vehicles, with a range of 22kW slow and 150kW fast chargers to be installed by Volta Trucks’ recently announced charging infrastructure partner, Siemens. The strategic partnership with Siemens includes software control systems, facility electrification, charging stations operation, energy management, building equipment and project finance.

Volta Trucks and Heppner have worked closely together to identify charging requirements through a sequence of site assessments, the companies say. Critical to deploying an effective charging solution, each assessment identified a sites existing infrastructure and upgrades required to recharge a fleet of Volta Zero’s.

This agreement will enable Heppner to offer its drivers both 16-tonne and 18-tonne full-electric trucks suitable for last-mile delivery.
