On 15-Oct-19, a BMW management team was invited by Sinochem International Corporation to join the ribbon cutting ceremony of the first High Power Charging (HPC) Station power by BMW Stationary Batteries. The HPC station is owned and operated by Sinochem International Corporation and currently offers charging at 60KW per charging pillar which is backed by 1MWh of BMW Stationary Batteries with the future plan to upgrade to 300KW and 2MWh. Sinochem currently plans to build two more HPC stations in early 2020 in Beijing as part of its pilot feasibility study of the technology. The Sinochem Group is a Chinese conglomerate (Fourtune 500 ranking 98 in 2018) with currently more than 300 subsidiaries inside and outside China. It was founded in 1950 with headquarters in Beijing and is with core businesses in Chemical, Agriculture, Oil, Real state, and Finance.
“We believe BMW Stationary Battery was developed and manufactured according to the highest automotive quality and safety standards. This is the reason we decided to choose to use BMW Stationary Battery for Sinochem HPC stations.” – Mr. Hongsheng Liu, CEO of Sinochem International.
