ABB E-mobility and Shell have announced plans to deploy over 200 of ABB’s Terra 360 DC fast chargers across Germany in the next 12 months.
Shell says its Recharge network of Terra 360 chargers will be powered by 100 percent renewable electricity.
The Terra 360 is available in different configurations that can charge multiple vehicles simultaneously. Its modular design is designed to ensure peak utilization with dynamic power distribution. Its maximum output of 360 kW is apparently the highest level currently available in a passenger car charger.
ABB E-mobility recently signed a global framework agreement with Shell to supply ABB’s end-to-end portfolio of AC and DC charging stations, ranging from the AC wallbox for home, work or retail installations to the Terra 360, which is aimed at urban charging stations, retail parking and fleet applications.
“For drivers on the go, particularly those on long journeys, charging speed is key and every minute waiting can make a big difference to their journey,” said István Kapitány, Global Executive VP for Shell Mobility. “For fleet owners, speed is important for top-up charging during the day that keeps EV fleets moving. This is why, through our partnership with ABB, we are pleased to offer our customers the fastest charging available first in Germany and soon in other markets.”
