Tritium Holdings, a global developer and manufacturer of direct current (DC) fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), has announced a partnership with Shell. The company has executed a global framework agreement with Shell, the world’s largest mobility retailer with over 46,000 retail sites, to provide fast charging technology and services.
This agreement is expected to help accelerate the supply of Tritium DC fast chargers to their business operations in Europe, South Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America. This is part of Shell’s ambition to operate 500,000 charge points by 2025 and 2,500,000 by 2030.
Tritium recently announced its new architecture and line of fast chargers for electric vehicles. The new PKM line grants charge point operators the freedom to share one central source of converted DC power around the site.
Since the infrastructure is shared, less equipment is needed. This enables operators to deploy more charging stations and increase the number of fast chargers available for electric car drivers. This will ultimately make deployment quicker and easier.
Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO, said: “This is a great opportunity for Tritium. We have been selling EV charging infrastructure to Shell since 2020 and we’re thrilled to have been selected as a partner to Shell in this latest tender.
“It’s a vote of confidence in Tritium’s products and services and we look forward to supporting Shell in their endeavours to reduce emissions and enable the rapid electrification of transportation.
“Tritium technology has been designed to provide fast, rugged and reliable charging in any environment, and we look forward to working with Shell and its affiliates to deploy DC fast charging infrastructure all over the world.”
