Tritium to install 300 fast chargers across Australia
Tritium has signed a deal with Evie Networks to install more than 300 of Tritium’s new RTM 50kW fast chargers across Australia. Over the next two years, the chargers are to be deployed at 158 different destinations with two chargers at each site.
Last month, on behalf of the Australian government, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) awarded funding totaling 24.55 million Australian dollars (roughly 15,2 million euros) to five providers to build a total of 403 new fast-charging stations. Now the fast-charging specialist Tritium, announced it has signed a deal with Evie Networks to install more than 300 of Tritium’s new RTM 50kW fast chargers across Australia.
“This is a huge vote of confidence for the team,” said Evie Networks CEO Chris Mills. “This expansion across all of Australia’s capital cities will accelerate access to quality fast EV charging for more Australians. Our sites will be prepared for the future with this advanced and upgradeable technology from Tritium.”
Tritium says that, at 50kW, the chargers can add up to 50 kilometres (31 miles) of range to an EV in 10 minutes.
“It’s fantastic to see this scale of charging infrastructure being deployed in Australia – it will help reduce range anxiety and encourage EV uptake, which is lagging behind other developed countries,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “We’re very pleased to see federal government support for the rollout of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Earlier this month, the Australian charging manufacturer Tritium partnered with Greenlots and Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) on a series of charging locations throughout Central Maryland, USA. In Europe in April of this year, Tritium, along with other major players such as BMW AG, Groupe Renault, Stellantis, Volkswagen AG, and Shell, bp, and Total, agreed to implement Plug&Charge as standardised by ISO before the second half of this year. A dedicated project team at CharIN is to drive the implementation. Tritium is considered an industry leader with its rapid development of Plug&Charge technology.
