ABB delivers advanced EV chargers for Electric Highway
ECA Commercial Associate ABB has installed Ultrafast and Fast chargers across Gridserve’s advanced multi-site charging network in the UK, dubbed the ‘Electric Highway’.
GRIDSERVE’s Electric Highway will include coverage for 85 percent of the UK’s motorway network, plus towns and cities across the country. This multi-million pound investment will be supported by ABB’s Ultrafast DC 350 kW chargers at 50 of the new Electric Charging Hubs, with each site having between 6 and 12 charging units. A further 300 Fast DC 60 kW chargers will provide enhanced reliability to upgrade 150 existing sites that GRIDSERVE has acquired from Ecotricity.
Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE said: “GRIDSERVE’s purpose is to deliver sustainable energy and move the needle on climate change. We’ve chosen to use ABB EV chargers as they have the technology and capability to help deliver our ambitious plans for the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway network, and provide the best possible charging experience for EV drivers.”
Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility Division said: “GRIDSERVE’s choice of ABB for its Electric Highway is a notable endorsement of our leadership in e-mobility, our strong relationship and shared desire to revolutionise EV charging in the UK.”
