As part of its deal with Cepsa, IONITY is launching two high-power charging stations in Zaragoza. Located in the service stations of Ariza (Zaragoza), on both sides of the highway, the new sites are equipped with two and four high power chargers, respectively, each with a capacity of 350 kW.

IONITY has prepared the stations for up to 4 additional high-power chargers that can be added depending on the demand. Cepsa will supply 100% renewable energy to these facilities.

With these two new facilities located on the A-2, the highway which connects Madrid and Barcelona, there are now four charging stations available at Cepsa locations in Spain. In October of last year, IONITY installed its first four high power chargers on the Iberian Peninsula, in the town of Pallejà (Barcelona), and added a further two in February, in Puerto Lumbreras (Murcia).

Currently, IONITY is installing high power charging facilities in the stations of Cepsa in Vilasana (Lérida) and El Hidalgo (Valdepeñas, Ciudad Real). Throughout 2020, this partnership intends to build more than twenty high power recharging stations in Spain and Portugal.

IONITY is thus continuing the expansion of its European network, and has already deployed 244 high power charging stations within the Europe-E project, covering main routes across 13 EU Member States and along all 9 TEN-T Core Network Corridors and the Core Network. The EUROP-E project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.

In July 2018, Cepsa signed a collaboration agreement with IONITY, the European high-performance charging network formed by the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche AG, for the installation of electric charging points at its service stations in Spain and Portugal.

Cepsa currently has an extensive network of close to 1,800 service stations in Spain and Portugal.
