Milan, 31 May 2022 – The opening of a production plant in Milan for the production of recharging systems and energy storage, the hiring over the next two years of about 100 people, most of them engineers, an investment of about 10 million euros over the next two years, and the creation of a centre of excellence for the innovation of electric recharging systems in Lombardy. These will be the main commitments of E-GAP Engineering, the new technological joint venture created between EGAP, the first urban, mobile and on-demand fast charging service in Europe, Set Engineering and Eltec, a leading group in innovative solutions based on electronic systems and cutting-edge technologies and specialised in the battery sector.
The manufacturing innovation cluster, initially formed by computer, electronic and mechanical engineers from leading national university centres and energy engineering professionals, also includes the
development of solutions for the second life use of batteries, in line with the highest ESG standards, for the continued support of the circular economy.
“E-GAP Engineering is the first pole of integration between off-grid charging systems and batteries and constitutes a centre of excellence on the European scene. With this Joint Venture, E-GAP completes the
process of internalising the technological and production chain of its recharging systems, making itself autonomous and strengthening the foundations to accelerate the group’s growth” said Luca Fontanelli,
Europe General Manager and Italy CEO of E-GAP and President of E-GAP Engineering.
“Set Engineering’s technology, combined with the experience gained with Eltec, a recognised excellence in the design and production of lithium-ion batteries, will make an essential contribution to the development of cutting-edge recharging solutions and to the diversification of the product portfolio, which will enable us to reach targets in potential markets that have not been explored to date” said Andrea Abbà, President of Set Engineering and Eltec and CEO of E-GAP Engineering
