TDS joined forces with Bluekens EV to make the investment possible.

The BYD ETM6 electric lorries are safe and quiet zero-emission vehicles that are practical for operating in high-density city centres.

Powered by BYD Iron-Phosphate Battery technology, the lorries offer the longest driving range, 125 miles with a full load, in the market in its 7.5 ton category, as well as extended battery life and high levels of safety.

Smart solutions for the charging infrastructure at TDS were considered in the preliminary phase. As a result, new charging facilities have been developed at one location, which will allow the surplus of solar energy from the solar panels to be used for charging,” says Gert-Jan Jonker, General Manager, Bluekens EV.
