01 July 2016, 10:11 EEST

Fortum Charge & Drive and the Icelandic company ON Power have expanded their collaboration.

ON Power has been using Fortum Charge & Drive business system for operating their electric vehicle charging infrastructure. New functionalities will now be added to the cloud solution provided by Fortum Charge & Drive. These new functionalities improve customer-experience; new customer portal, web application and payment functionalities make it easier for customers to charge their cars. These services are offered as white-label making it possible for ON Power to offer the services using their own brand.

ON Power is the only charge point operator in Iceland and is developing a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. ON Power will have approximately 20 chargers on Iceland at the end of this year.

“It is crucial to simplify for our EV customers day-to-day charging. With this added functionality payment and support will be easier for our customers,” says Jón Sigurðsson, Key Account Manager of ON Power.

Since April last year, ON Power have been using Charge & Drive cloud for business and infrastructure management.

“We are pleased about the collaboration with ON Power and that we now are broadening the collaboration. It shows that our cloud service is truly important to simplify for the actual EV end-user,” says Rami Syväri, Head of International Sales & Business Development, Fortum Charge & Drive.
