Australian charging station manufacturer Tritium has signed a new global framework agreement with Shell to supply DC charging stations. Tritium has been supplying Shell with fast charging stations since 2020 and has now also been selected in Shell’s latest tender.
Neither company has disclosed the scope of the order. Tritium simply says: “This agreement is expected to help accelerate the supply of Tritium DC fast chargers to their business operations in Europe, South Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America, in pursuit of Shell’s ambition to operate 500,000 charge points by 2025 and 2,500,000 by 2030.” In Germany, Tritium is best known as one of Ionity’s equipment suppliers.
“This is a great opportunity for Tritium. We have been selling EV charging infrastructure to Shell since 2020 and we’re thrilled to have been selected as a partner to Shell in this latest tender,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “Tritium technology has been designed to provide fast, rugged and reliable charging in any environment, and we look forward to working with Shell and its affiliates to deploy DC fast charging infrastructure all over the world,” said Jane Hunter, CEO of Tritium.
This year has been quite eventful for Tritium. The company has had orders coming in from all over the globe, from its home country of Australia to North America and Europe, and this year opened up headquarters in Singapore. Here, Tritium is opening a new regional office that aims to cater to the increase in interest in EVs in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. This should allow the company to have a local presence in the region and align more closely with its customers in Asia. Just last week, the Australian company presented a new fast charger generation, that primarily differs from its predecessors in the way energy is distributed within a charging park. Other developments at the company have included making existing models Plug&Charge-capable.
Shell plans 500,000 charging points worldwide by 2025, which was revealed when the petrochemical giant Shell presented its strategy for achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
