PLUON: the Sustainable, local and modular EV charging station
PLUON is a fully recyclable aluminum charging station with an exchangeable unit. When maintaining the charging station, the technician only has to change the head to repair it in the workshop. The charging station is ready for use with a new unit.
All parts are made by local suppliers.
Sustainable since upgradable: thanks to the modular head, we effortlessly implement new technologies.
Thanks to the option to personalize the charging stations fit seamlessly with the architecture and house style.
