Pioneer Power Solutions e-Boost system to be used to recharge EVs entering U.S.

Product from Fort Lee company purchased by Heliox Energy to help VinFast EVs coming into California port

Fort Lee-based Pioneer Power Solutions has been selected by global giant Heliox Energy to provide two of its new 400-kilowatt, propane-powered mobile charging e-Boost systems for electric vehicles.

The e-Boost systems will be deployed at the Port of Benicia in California to fast charge VinFast EVs imported from overseas manufacturing facilities before they are delivered directly to consumers.

Pioneer Power expects to deliver both 400 kW e-Boost systems to VinFast before the end of the first quarter of 2023.

Pioneer Power Chairman and CEO Nathan Mazurek said he’s thrilled the demand for the company’s e-Boost products is growing.

“We continue to identify and service a broader base of use-cases for our e-Boost initiative, an anytime/anywhere EV charging solution, which demonstrates that we are meeting a previously unmet need, particularly with EV manufacturers,” he said.

“EVs arriving from overseas need to be recharged after they disembark from shipping vessels, and the current ports lack an EV charging infrastructure to meet this demand. Our rapid charging e-Boost systems expedite this process, helping VinFast get EVs to eager consumers faster.
