Electrifying the future of public transport

Electric Bus Charging Solutions

At Vital EV, we understand the importance of providing reliable and efficient public transportation. That’s why we are dedicated to delivering cutting-edge electric bus charging technology that meets the needs of our customers, with a seamless ‘Whole Life Solution’ from site survey to our unrivalled aftersales support.

Pantograph Charging For Electric Buses

Pantograph charging for electric buses can greatly improve the performance of your bus fleet by reducing downtime and increasing range. A pantograph device is attached to the roof of the bus and a charging point on the ground, linking together at bus stops and terminals to charge the battery without the driver needing to get out of the bus. We offer pantograph charging with speeds of up to 600kW; adding up to 10 miles of range per minute.

Bus Depot Charging

Depot charging allows for charging at the end of a bus route, ensuring that buses are fully charged and ready to go for the next day. Typical bus depot charging speeds vary from 50kW, for overnight charging, to 400kW or more for ultra-rapid and quick turnaround operations.

Cable Downarm System

The Kempower Cable Downarm System from Vital EV provides a space-saving cable management solution for tight and high installation locations such as bus and truck depots. It features a lightweight cable management arm (patent pending). It can be easily pulled down for charging and pushed back up for storage after use, leaving the charging area free for passing vehicles.
