Berlin/Warsaw, 06.07.22. GreenTech startup Swobbee and micromobility provider TIER Mobility are expanding their partnership to Poland following successful projects in Germany. Four Swobbee stations were recently put into operation in Warsaw, which are an important part of TIER’s new decentralized energy network that will be continuously expanded.
The Swobbee charging and battery swapping stations were installed as part of an ongoing pilot project in Warsaw’s Mokotów district at 365 Wilanowska Avenue. In the four Battery Swapping Stations, 120 exchangeable batteries can be charged and stored simultaneously under optimal conditions. This enables effective use of the TIER swap batteries and optimizes charging logistics in the surrounding area of operation, which will soon be extended to Konstancin. These are the first Swobbee stations in Poland – for Swobbee another important building block in its internationalization strategy.
Mathieu Deloly, Managing Director of TIER in Central and Eastern Europe, explains:
“Swobbee’s innovative battery swap station is another step towards establishing a decentralized charging station network in Poland. The interchangeable batteries of our e-scooters allow us to operate our fleet more efficiently and sustainably and offer ‘green’ services to cities and their residents.”
Tobias Breyer, Head of Marketing and Co-Founder of Swobbee, adds:
“Swobbee is the ideal solution to run e-scooter fleets more efficiently and sustainably. We are very excited to now continue our collaboration with TIER as a leading micromobility provider in Poland and together offer city and environmentally friendly mobility services in Warsaw.”
Swobbee is the world’s first multi-vendor battery swapping and charging infrastructure with a multi-modal approach for electric micro-vehicles such as e-scooters, e-load bikes or e-scooters. Within a few seconds, an empty battery can be exchanged for a full one at a Swobbee station. As early as June last year, the first e-scooter test station was put into operation in Düsseldorf as part of a joint pilot project by TIER and Swobbee and has since been successfully tested. This was followed in November 2021, together with Audi, by further charging stations for TIER e-scooters at the world’s first Audi charging hub in Nuremberg.
