In the first four months of 2022 ZAZA TIMBER built a number of ultra-fast charging stations in Køge, Odense and Esbjerg in Denmark. The project is developed by Clever, a leading Danish company specializing in electric vehicle charging stations, and holistic mobility and charging solutions.
The station in Køge consists of 11 canopies and provides 22 ultra-fast charging outlets.
In Odense, the station consists of 28 canopies with 56 ultra-fast charging spots underneath.
In Esbjerg, the ultra-fast charging station is built at the Airport and consists of four canopies with 8 charging outlets. The roof is covered in plants, it requires minimal upkeep and aids biodiversity.
In this project ZAZA TIMBER group companies had responsibility for detailing, manufacturing all timber and steel structures, and assembly of timber structures. Glulam structures were made of FSC certified timber and manufactured in ZAZA TIMBER manufacturing plant in Latvia.
The station project was developed by Clever and Danish architecture firm Cobe. The architectural concept is of a 5 meters tall and 7 meters wide timber canopy modelled on a tree. By connecting multiple modules, the stations can be built to varied sizes and configurations, meaning the concept can be executed in various locations. The concept includes a choice of renewable materials which can be recycled or upcycled.
Clever and Cobe won several awards for this project, including the infrastructure award of the 2018 Danish Building Awards, ArchDaily’s Building of the Year Award 2020, and 2021 Danish Auto Award. The project is among Danish Design Awards 2022 finalists in Liveable Cities category.
