The first phase of the project will pilot four electric battery swapping stations dedicated to heavy-duty trucks at the Changle and Luoyangjiang rest stops along expressways, providing timely energy replenishment services for electric heavy-duty trucks traveling between Ningde and Xiamen cities, and solving the "range anxiety" and "recharging anxiety" for the users of new energy heavy-duty trucks.
