Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB’s global business for E-Mobility Infrastructure Solutions said:
For e-mobility to flourish, drivers need fast-charging stations with a reliable power supply connection. ABB’s ability to provide this as an end-to-end solution is why we are the leading name in electric vehicle charging and is a key factor in our work for Vattenfall. The strength of our technical support and our ability to deliver against very short time frames places ABB ahead of the competition.
Björn Öster, Public Charging Manager at Vattenfall e-mobility Nordic, said:
Vattenfall and ABB have a long history of collaboration. Together we have a proven track-record for a turn-key solution in bringing fast chargers to the public EV market – ABB delivers our hardware and grid connection equipment and we install and connect it to the public network InCharge making it possible for the EV driver to find and use it in a smooth way.
Vattenfall is using ABB’s DC 50kW Terra fast-charging station, which provides a fast charge on the go for the most common battery sizes within 30 to 45 minutes. The ABB Terra uses open standards to offer a future-proof connection as well as remote monitoring and remote assistance functions via the ABB Ability platform.
