ABB, a global leader in industrial automation and robotics, will supply its DC fast charging stations to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in Singapore.
SP Group, a leading energy utilities company in the Asia Pacific, has selected the ABB chargers as part of its deployment of 500 EV charging points across Singapore by 2020.
Earlier this year SP Group announced it is building Singapore’s largest public charging network, an important milestone for the development of e-mobility for the nation.
It plugs a critical gap in the adoption of EVs and empowers citizens to embrace greener mobility options.
ABB has already supplied one DC fast charger to SP Group as a prototype and will deliver the first 15 for the project next month.
ABB says its DC charging stations offer fast, convenient and reliable service with convenience akin to a fuel station experience.
Largest DC charging network in Singapore
More than 100 of the 500 points on the SP network will be of the fast-charging type, making this by far the largest DC charging network in Singapore.
ABB will supply SP with DC charging points with a 50KW power rating that can fully charge an EV in as little as 30 minutes.
"We are proud to expand our long-established partnership with the SP Group to support a nation-wide EV charging network across Singapore," said Frank Muehlon, Managing Director for electric vehicle charging infrastructure at ABB.
"ABB’s technologies will not only support this landmark project but also serve the nation’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and lay the foundation for sustainable mobility, one of the key initiatives of the country’s Smart Nation vision.”
ABB has had extensive experience in the development of fast charging stations in the US with Electrify America and across Europe with IONITY.
Earlier this year, ABB partnered with Volvo Buses and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore to provide its state-of-the-art Heavy Vehicle Chargers (HVC) 300P for a forthcoming project to deliver two autonomous driving electric buses for the island by early next year.
ABB’s product portfolio includes charging technologies for electric cars, buses and trucks, as well as solutions for the electrification of ships, railways and cable cars.
The company boasts more than 8,000 DC fast charging stations across 68 countries.
