About us

OPCHARGE specializes in charging solutions for both public, business and private use. In all cases, we are happy to advise and support you in choosing Of your right custom charging solution.


We are OPCHARGE, the improved version of OPLAAD.net. Founded by Pieter Haans and Freddy van Nispen. Coming from a broad commercial background in mobility, we stepped into the dynamic world of charging solutions and everything that comes with it. We want to do our part to accelerate the growth of the number of charging stations in public spaces: charging stations that are directly connected to the public network.

In doing so, we do not aspire to become the biggest. What we do, however, we want to do well and green. The Netherlands aims for 500,000 charging stations, with 1 million charging points, by the year 2025. To reach that number at the current number and pace, it is necessary to install over 200 charging stations per day! We would like to play our part in this and have therefore set ourselves the target of filling 5 percent of the total need for charging points by 2025. We can do this for public, business and private use: anytime, anywhere with the right charging solution and with a complete worry-free service. With us, your request for a charging station is in good and reliable hands. Our company management system guarantees quality and we are currently working on both ISO 9001 and 14001 certification. With 25,000 charging stations from Opcharge by 2025, we know the world has become a little more sustainable. Are you a city or business ready for electric driving? Then we are ready for you!


The founders

Freddy van Nispen and Pieter Haans are born and bred Brabanders with extensive experience in the automotive industry. The world of dealers, importers and manufacturers holds no secrets for them. In fact, because of their international sales and training experience in the automotive industry, they see which new models will be on the market in 5 years. For example, they were the first to see the rapid rise of electric driving and the impact it has on the entire automotive supply chain. Automotive is decisive in the electrification of motoring. Gas stations will have to be replaced by charging stations. This is where they see the greatest challenge and development. And thus the greatest opportunity to contribute to the transition from fossil fuels to electric.

The first charging station

The idea of turning that into entrepreneurship brought them together. True to their characters and backgrounds, they put their money where their mouth is. In 2018, they started their company for realizing public charging stations and charging stations for businesses. Literally by putting the shovel in the ground yourself. Together they dug 6 meters through the rubble for their first charging station, at their favorite restaurant in Breda. Many piles followed, in large parts of the Netherlands. Now no longer by digging ourselves, but in smart cooperation with Dutch suppliers and local contractors.

OPCHARGE’s ambition has grown: 25,000 charging points by 2025. But Freddy and Pieter never forget where they came from. Service, customer focus, sensitivity to local conditions and customized solutions for the EV rider are key. This is natural for them and they may be held accountable for it. Just directly, on their own 06 numbers. Charging around the corner: it can be done! Let’s green the city!
