Based on the west coast of Norway, Zaptec is a rapidly growing green technology company, specialising in smart systems for electric car charging. In just a few years, Zaptec’s technology has been embraced by a significant proportion of private electric car users. As a market leader in a country already far ahead in the development of green mobility infrastructure, Zaptec’s ambitions extend far beyond Norway’s borders.
For decades, oil has been the main industry in southern Western Norway. Many companies contributed their knowledge to develop the industry. So too did Stavanger company Zaptec. The company’s name originated from the technology they used to send electric shocks through oil pipelines in order to clear them of waste substances.
Zaptec has now transferred their knowledge from the oil industry to the renewable industry, becoming a world-leading provider of smart electric car chargers.
“You could say we went from ‘zapping’ oil pipelines to blowing the sparks into the green revolution,” says Maiken Økland, Head of Communications at Zaptec.
“Our goal is to create a more sustainable and electric future by combining the latest technology with designs that put people at the centre. We want to help people undertake new and exciting adventures instead of worrying about range anxiety.”
