Kempower, a leading provider of DC fast-charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), has taken a significant step towards a more efficient and sustainable future with the introduction of an electric robot bus. This innovative vehicle will transport goods between Kempower’s two Lahti factories, revolutionizing its internal logistics and showcasing Finland’s expertise in electric transportation technology.
Boosting Efficiency and Sustainability
The electric robot bus, delivered by Finnish robotics specialist Remoted, replaces conventional trucks previously used to move power modules between Kempower’s facilities. This shift offers several key benefits:
- Enhanced production efficiency: Continuous operation eliminates reliance on costly intermediate storage, streamlining production processes.
- Emission reductions: Replacing diesel trucks with an electric vehicle significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
- Reduced storage needs: Continuous flow of materials minimizes the need for intermediate storage facilities.
- Optimized processes: Automated transportation improves overall logistics efficiency and accuracy.
A Commitment to Electrification
Kempower’s embrace of electric technology extends beyond its charging solutions. The company is committed to reducing its own environmental footprint and promoting the widespread adoption of EVs. The robot bus is a tangible demonstration of this commitment, showcasing the potential of electric vehicles in various applications.
“We are excited about the positive impact this milestone will have on our operations at our HQ in Lahti,” said Kempower’s COO Sanna Otava. “We want to contribute to the promotion of the widespread adoption of electric transportation and a more efficient and automated future.”
