ABB technology helps Copenhagen Airport become Denmark’s largest EV charging site

  • ABB to supply 1,350 chargers in partnership with energy group EWII
  • Both the airport's own EVs and the EVs from the airport’s more than 80,000 daily travelers will have easy access to charging
  • Drivers will benefit from a broad range of ABB charging solutions, including the recently launched Terra 360, the world’s fastest car charger

As part of a long-term agreement, charging infrastructure from ABB will play a key role in helping Copenhagen Airport (CPH) achieve carbon-neutrality in operations by 2030. Over the next ten years, ABB will provide energy group EWII with 1,350 EV chargers for installation at one of Scandinavia’s busiest airports that will become Denmark’s largest site for electric vehicle (EV) charging. The first 180 AC chargers and 15 DC fast chargers will be installed in 2022. Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.

"We are pleased to support CPH in their sustainable transition with our broad portfolio of quality and professional charging solutions", said Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility. "We are convinced that it will not only serve as inspiration for other airports in Denmark but also in other countries and that it will again demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of clean, quiet and flexible electric mobility.”

CPH was looking for a holistic EV charging solution for its more than 80,000 daily travelers and employees parking on site. The solution also needed to serve vehicles in need of faster charging including taxis dropping off travelers and businesses operating inside the airport handling transportation, luggage and catering.

To meet this demand EWII teamed up with a number of partners, including ABB to supply the 1,350 charging points. The charging infrastructure will consist of chargers from ABB’s entire portfolio, from the 22kW Terra AC wallbox to the recently launched Terra 360, the world’s fastest all-in-one electric car charger, which can deliver 100km of range in less than three minutes and is the only charger designed explicitly to charge up to four vehicles at once.

”With ABB as our e-mobility partner, we are assured access to a wide range of solutions that can charge everything from cars to buses and trucks. Additionally, it was crucial for us and the airport that the charging stations be both reliable and of the highest quality. As an experienced global partner, which helps to drive innovation in EV charging infrastructure, ABB performs on all parameters”, says Jesper Nicolaisen, Head of Wholesale at EWII.

Notes to editors

ABB is a global leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, offering a complete range of charging and electrification solutions for electric cars, electric and hybrid buses, vans, trucks, ships and railways. ABB entered the e-mobility market back in 2010, and today has sold more than 680,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 85 markets; over 30,000 DC fast chargers and 650,000 AC chargers, including those sold through Chargedot.

In 2019, CPH had an average of 83,000 passengers passing through the terminals daily, many of them taking advantage of one of the more than 14,000 parking spaces at the airport. Some of them are already equipped with electric charging stations, but the trend shows that the need will grow over the coming years. CPH is now responding to this need in close cooperation with EWII.
