ABB’s Indian arm is running pilot projects in EV charging infrastructure with some automakers. This includes an EV charging station at Rohtang (near Manali) and in New Delhi.
In February 2018, ABB India installed a fast-charging station — ABB Terra 53 — at government think-tank NITI Aayog’s office in Delhi, which can fully charge an EV in 30 minutes.
Globally, ABB also has advanced EV charging solutions such as flash-charging technology that charges a bus in a remarkable 20sec, and the Terra HP fast charger that can power a car for a 200km range in a single charge that takes barely eight minutes.
It is this Terra HP fast-charging system that ABB showcased at the MOVE Global Mobility Summit in New Delhi on September 7-8. The company says Terra HP is ideally suited for highway rest stops and petrol stations, where the highest power is required to minimise charging time.
ABB’s presence in India dates back over a century, and the company has had manufacturing operations here for over 60 years. The company has been a leader in e-mobility for well over a century and it has been one of the first companies to electrify railways, tunnels and trains.
ABB pioneered electric propulsion for ships. They are a technology leader in e-mobility for buses: The revolutionary flash-charging TOSA system keeps buses running all day with just 20-second charging at selected stops.
