The first smart charging station, for electric vehicles, 100% Moroccan: “iSmart” was presented on Monday December 21, 2020 at the headquarters of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Green and Digital Economy, in the presence of Moulay Hafid Elalamy.
This charging station is the result of a research project developed at the request of manufacturers in the automotive sector by the Green Energy Park, a research platform set up jointly by IRESEN and the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), and supported by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Green and Digital Economy and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Environment.
Speaking on this occasion, Moulay Hafid Elalamy said he was “very happy and proud of this highly strategic project for our country which was carried out by Moroccan skills. It represents one of the components of the sustainable mobility infrastructure in which Morocco is engaged under the leadership of King Mohammed VI”.
Ismart is a new generation of intelligent charging stations for professional and domestic use which has two types of connectors and 4 versions: wall, mobile, on candelabra or on foot. Intended for the Moroccan market, it includes technical characteristics adapted for flexible and efficient use and has a capacity ranging from 7 to 22 kw.
As part of the green ecosystem, in its sustainable mobility component, a production line for this new generation of smart terminals will be installed in Benguerir in 2022, with the support of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Green and Digital economy for the industrialization of this project. The production capacity of this plant will be 5000 terminals per year.
For the industrialization of this terminal, subcontracting partnerships will be developed with manufacturers operating in particular in plastic injection, thin sheet machining / bending, laser cutting and the manufacture of electronic cards.
A fast terminal with a capacity varying between 20 kw and 60 kw is also being developed for future marketing.
