New York, NY, Thursday, March 17th, 2022 — We are pleased to announce that Ampcontrol is partnering with Longship to directly connect Ampcontrol’s software to any AC or DC charger with an OCPP backend. Longship is a software company that offers self-service software for charge point operators (CPO). The partnership allows charging station owners to easily connect to Longship’s OCPP solution and Ampcontrol’s charging optimization software, taking only a few minutes to set up new charging stations. Ampcontrol and Longship are already successfully working together in multiple projects, such as a bus operator in the United Kingdom, and a charge point operator in The Netherlands.
“We are excited to be partnering with one of the only true OCPP-as-a-Service companies currently in the market. Their solution speaks to the deep hardware and software knowledge of their founders” says Joachim Lohse, CEO and founder of Ampcontrol. “In the past months, we have seen many companies seeking a seamless and flexible OCPP and smart charging solution, and we believe the combination of Longship and Ampcontrol is the perfect solution for this.”
“Longship is delighted to partner with Ampcontrol and integrate their state-of-the-art, smart charging solution. Their seamless API offers our clients the ability to build intelligent load management capabilities using their cloud-based software without needing additional hardware. We see a lot of movement in the market on these topics, and we are convinced that combining Ampcontrol and Longship will significantly increase our clients’ value proposition,” says Riccardo Becker, co-founder of Longship.

In early 2022, Ampcontrol closed a new funding round led by Koolen Industries. Both companies believe that smart charging is one of the most promising ways to remove roadblocks to the rapid introduction of electrified transportation.
Ampcontrol was invited to present at EVS35 2022 in Oslo. Dr. Jonas Schlund, Lead Data Scientist at Ampcontrol, presented his research on how to use electric vehicle smart charging to provide frequency containment reserve (FCR) power.
