Enel X will expand into another electric motorsport series next year, having been appointed as ETCR’s official smart charging supplier.
The brand, which acts as Enel Group’s global line to develop products for sectors including e-mobility, industries, cities and homes, will provide fast charging stations for all cars at every ETCR event.
Enel X already has similar relationships with the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.
“By partnering with ETCR, we are strengthening our technological leadership in the international motorsport world, confirming our ability to design innovative solutions that can fully adapt to the diverse needs of racing championships,” said Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X.
“Our collaborations within the world of electric motorsport allow us to develop and test new solutions for electric racing vehicles that can then be replicated on the street for everyday use, with the aim of boosting technological innovation in electric mobility and improving the overall electric vehicle experience.”
It will provide two types of fast DC charging stations specifically developed for ETCR: a single 60 kW connector charger and a double connector charger with two 60 kW outputs that is able to deliver 120 kW when only one output is engaged.
The chargers will be integrated in customized wheeled boxes, making them completely movable, while still being able to charge cars in under an hour.
“Enel X is a leading company in the development of strategies and products for sustainable mobility worldwide. Having secured their support for the supply of chargers tailored for ETCR cars makes us really proud,” said Marcello Lotti, president of ETCR promoter WSC Group.
“The experience they have already gained through their involvement in other motorsport categories speaks for itself and we are very much looking forward to establishing a long and successful collaboration with them.”
