With rapid EV growth, and more vehicles with longer range, fast charging stations are in demand across the United States, as well as in other markets around the world.
Customer and industry need
The rapid deployment of hundreds of dual-outlet stations in a short period of time is crucial for the US EV consumer market to truly “take off” and become mainstream. This requires meeting high user expectations for reliability, and necessitated experience in power equipment, its operation, and the seamless connection of data into billing and fleet management systems.
ABB Ability™ solutions
ABB Ability solutions for EV Charging supported ABB’s Terra 53 DC fast charging station in one project recently, which was deemed the most rugged, redundant and OEM tested solution available. ABB has been able to integrate several hundreds of stations with its customer’s network operation, while meeting aggressive installation and reliability targets.
