On Friday 25 June, "Mobidock" and Margret Hagerup officially opened the world's first wireless charging point for micromobility at Ruten in Sandnes. Together with partners, main suppliers and a pleasant video greeting from the Minister of Oil and Energy Tina Bru, Mobidock marked the start of a pilot project worth 9.5 million which will find a solution to the problem of electric scooters that are not parked properly. The pilot project, which is supported by Innovation Norway, is unique on a global scale, and is a fantastic example of the green shift; advanced oil technology, which is supplied to NASA and the US Navy, among others, is being used in a new way.
Project manager Frode Gundersen says that the goal is to establish a sustainable charging infrastructure for micromobility in small and large cities both nationally and internationally. The main aim is to achieve a significantly tidier and more environmentally friendly cityscape by introducing adapted charging and parking infrastructure.
