AUSTIN, TEXAS – April 17, 2023 – Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS), a part of Dover Corporation and a leading global provider of advanced customer-focused technologies, services and solutions in the fuel and convenience retail industry, is proud to announce its partnership with ICASA Energy Solutions (ICASA) and Technical Services Group (TSG), to offer DX Power™, DFS’ seamless electric vehicle (EV) payment solution, in Europe.
DFS and ICASA, a major player in integrated, end-to-end cloud solutions for the management of energy activities, established a strategic partnership after years of successful and intensive cooperation. In conjunction with Prizma, DFS’ connected mobility and convenience hub, and the integrated ICASA solution, DX Power can provide station operators with improved visibility and control over all EV transactions and offer flexible payment options.
“The success of the initial launch of DX Power in Europe has exceeded our expectations,” said Raf Tormans, Senior Manager, Product Management, DFS. “DX Power makes it possible for EV chargers to be included in transactions through the point of sale (POS) system and the outdoor payment terminal. This enables customers to pay for EV charging with cash, as well as a traditional bank card, local account and fleet card.”
“The complexity and the biggest challenge of public EV charging lies in the identification and authentication of the EV driver,” Steve Vandermeeren, COO/CTO of ICASA, explains. “The partnership with Dover Fueling Solutions and the successful integration with DX Power allows us to authorize EV charging sessions via both fleet card and bank card, not requiring any subscriptions and providing EV drivers with the freedom to charge anywhere.”
As part of the DFS and ICASA partnership, the two companies completed a successful DX Power pilot program using TSG, the European leader in technical services for responsible mobility solutions. The pilot program was conducted at an AVIA VOLT site in Enschede, Netherlands and made possible due to the high level of cooperation from AVIA VOLT’s fully working service station.
Through the pilot program, DX Power successfully bridged the gap between EV chargers and the remaining AVIA VOLT forecourt system, helping to streamline the site and provide a frictionless customer journey. The ability to connect EV chargers to Prizma marks a new milestone for the DFS and TSG partnership in Europe.
“DX Power will enrich the customer journey and stimulate electric mobility by offering all existing and new payment methods while giving fuel retailers a clear insight on costs before and after the EV charging transaction,” said Tommy van der Sluijs, Business Development Manager EV, TSG Charge. “Only an intensive and successful cooperation between DFS, ICASA, and TSG could have led to this successful result.”
DX Power is compliant with applicable European Union regulations and industry standards. With the completion of the pilot program, DX Power will expand in Europe over the coming months.
