    Any ideas what this might be - spotted at an under-construction supercharger site in Tordesillas, Spain?

    (apologies for the poorly formatted images - this guy on twitter screenshotted them from elsewhere, I'm trying to find the original source)

    First thought is the in-ground liquid cooled charging system shown in the Tesla patent from a few months ago (See link - Tesla patent shows new way to automated high-speed charging with external cooling) but that is just wishful thinking.
