We have been talking about it for a while now. We first reported 2 months ago that Tesla was about to open its two biggest Supercharger stations yet – two 20-stall stations. One in Fremont, California, and one in Nebbenes, Norway.
Now the one in Norway finally opened this week making it the largest Supercharger station in operation in the world and likely the largest DC fast-charging station too.
Nebbenes is located just a few miles north of Oslo on a popular route in Norway.
While each charger is equipped with Tesla’s latest capacity of 145 kW, the site is limited to an impressive total output of 2,000 kW, meaning that if all the stalls are in use at the same time, they would be limited to 100 kW each, which isn’t bad at all.
As we discussed when Tesla Model S owner Christoph Lumpi stopped by the new station and shared a few pictures with us (see below), the Nebbenes Supercharger is featuring a new layout seen at a few of Tesla’s latest stations.
It looks almost like what you would see at a gas station than at a regular parking lot, which is where Tesla normally installs its Supercharger stations and what they normally look like.
Additionally, the station is equipped with several chargers operated by Fortum, a Finnish energy company. The chargers consist of 2 CHAdeMO and 2 CCS DC fast-chargers. Combined with Tesla’s 20 Superchargers, it makes it the largest fast-charging station site in the world, and it is also equipped with 2 22 kW level 2 chargers.
Bjorn Nyland stopped by the opening event with his Model X and he posted a quick video:
With this new location and the upcoming one in Fremont, California, we are hoping this will be a pattern for future Supercharger locations to feature more and more stalls.
