We reported in recent months on a gigantic 28 stall Tesla Supercharger at a hotel in the Netherlands. Here’s an update, including pictures of various phases of development.

Hotel Van Der Valk in Breukelen, near Utrecht Netherlands

Tesla has long been cooperating with the hotel chain Van der Valk in the Netherlands. Most Dutch Superchargers are on the parking lots of these hotels, conveniently located at the on- and off-ramps of highways. This one is about 15 miles from Amsterdam, close to Utrecht, on the A2 (a 2×5 lane highway). We need other Superchargers at the A1 and A4 at similar distance from Amsterdam to accommodate “Charging while Traveling.” Luckily, there are hotels from this chain at those locations.

The Van Der Valk hotels also offer charging to visitors with other electric cars.



On April 30, this 28 stall Supercharger was just a bare terrain, with the concrete bases delivered and the first half-dozen of them placed.



On May 10, the layout was recognizable, with the concrete bases placed and the cables ready to be connected.

The first stalls had arrived, but are still in their cardboard boxes.



On May 21, the stations were nearing completion. It is clearly a Tesla Supercharger site, the largest in Europe after the epic 34 stall Supercharger in Rygge, Norway.


In another few days, this can be ready for Tesla drivers. Drop us a note if you charge here!
