Singapore 2024: Lilium partners with Star Charge to develop charging system for eVTOL operations

Lilium has announced at the Singapore Airshow that it has partnered with Star Charge, a company providing electric vehicle charging infrastructure and microgrid solutions, to develop, customise, and provide charging systems for its Lilium Jets.

“The companies announced that Lilium placed a first order of 120 chargers for its ground and flight testing aircraft, as well as for its aircraft maintenance and delivery centre activities” according to the press release. “Lilium will also provide charging stations to its customers investing into vertiports.

“Lilium previously announced its adoption of the Combined Charging System (CCS) standard for rapid charging.  Star Charge’s customised, fast-charging system will be fully compatible with the Lilium Jets and other eVTOLs compatible with CCS. The chargers will feature an extra-long liquid cooled charging cable for high-performance charging, suitable for varied landing infrastructure.

“By using Star Charge’s CCS chargers, Lilium expects to reduce charging times significantly, in comparison to other chargers without liquid cooled charging cables. Reduced charging times will support reduced turnaround times between flights and provide higher utilisation of the Lilium Jet.”
