ABB has signed a new global framework agreement with Shell to supply its complete portfolio of AC and DC charging stations. The products range from the AC wallbox for homes, businesses and retail to the Terra 360 HPC charging point.
Shell reportedly intends to operate 500,000 charging points worldwide by 2025. By 2030, this number is to increase to 2.5 million. To achieve this, the oil company needs one thing above all: lots of charging points.
That is why Shell has already concluded two similar framework agreements in recent months. In December 2021, a deal with the Australian manufacturer Tritium was announced, and this February, Shell had concluded a global framework agreement with the Taiwanese charging station manufacturer Phihong Technology.
The number of units covered by each of the three framework agreements was not disclosed. In the case of Tritium and now ABB, the new framework agreements replace previous supply agreements. For Phihong, it was Shell’s first order, and the first columns from the cooperation are already in operation.
“We have been working together on the roll-out of public charging infrastructure since 2019 and this latest agreement takes that collaboration to the next level,” says Frank Mühlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility. “We are excited to support Shell in realizing its objective to create a global charging network. With access to the full breadth of our charging portfolio, we are ensuring that Shell can select the most appropriate solution for every use case, helping to get more people charging regardless of their location.”
