Heliox, global market leader in fast charging systems within public transport, marine, mining and port equipment is formalizing the working relationships with its preferred partners. Mark Smidt explains: “Heliox is extending its charging infrastructure network around Europe and is looking for trusted and reliable partners to further sustain the operation of EV-fleets of existing bus OEM’s. Following the positive and constructive cooperation with SPIE in the past, this was a logical step to take.”

With this partnership, SPIE once again underlines its aim to play a major role on the electro-mobility market. Jérôme Vanhove, SPIE Group strategy, development and M&A director and signatory to this partnership, points out that “SPIE has proven to be a first-rate partner in the installation, maintenance and operation of charging infrastructures. The growing development of this segment enable SPIE to consolidate its position as a key player in the Smart City and energy transition markets.”

With a long-lasting presence in the public transport market, SPIE is expanding its offer as Peter Arnet explains: "We’re currently acting as installers on pan-European projects, particularly in the field of high-power charging solutions, like with Ionity. With this partnership with Heliox, we are widening our expertise in charging station for public transport.”
