KCustomers of selected Bella branches, including those in Maria Lanzendorf, have the opportunity to charge their electric cars with green electricity while shopping.
For a few weeks in the summer of 2023, there was a construction site in front of Maria Lanzendorf’s Bella. The plant was completed at the end of July and there was a Shell charging station there – but it was not yet operational (NÖN reported). Electricity has been flowing there for several weeks, and on November 8th, the Recharge fast charging station was officially opened by Shell Austria and REWE Group as the site provider.
What’s more: Maria Lanzendorf’s opening act was synonymous with the actual beginning signal. Shell and the REWE Group want to build fast charging stations with a charging capacity of 150 kW in 100 locations in Billa, Bipa and Penny by 2025. “We want to offer our customers the opportunity to charge electricity wherever they need it, enabling “It’s easy to convert to a battery electric car.”
The charging station in Maria Lanzendorf is one of 12 Shell “fuel stations” established at Bella branches in Austria, and so far the only one in the greater Schwychat area. The charging station is compatible with most electric vehicles and provides powerful charging capacity. The car can be charged significantly while shopping. Billa Board Member Robert Nagel: “We want to continuously expand the e-charging infrastructure for our customers and thus contribute to climate protection.
