Brisbane, Australia 23 April 2018: Tritium, the Australian-based technology company and leading international specialist in DC charging infrastructure solutions for the electric vehicle (EV) market, has announced that it will be participating at the Hannover Messe, the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, from April 23 to 27.
Tritium will be showcasing the Veefil-RT 50kW EV Fast Charger. With the world’s smallest footprint for an electric vehicle charger and a sleek appearance, this fast charger has won several awards for design, innovation and sustainability.
The Veefil-RT 50kW EV Fast Charger has proven its durability and flexibility in locations around the world. Its patented liquid-cooling system is extremely reliable, ensuring maximum product life, lower operating cost and minimum maintenance even in extreme weather conditions. Its small footprint, lightweight design and easy installation open up a wide range of possible installation locations.
“Participating at the Hannover Messe will help us introduce our fast charger to a wider audience,” explains Jeroen Jonker, General Manager - Sales Europe, Tritium. “In just four years we have captured 20% market share in Western Europe, and we expect to increase this by expanding into corridor, fleet, workplace, public transport and ‘on-street’ public charging sectors.”
These goals are supported by Tritium’s new European headquarters, which opened earlier this year in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This will bring service, support, sales, training and manufacturing of its EV fast-charging solutions closer to European customers. Additionally, the new Dutch office houses a state-of-the-art training and accreditation unit for technical servicing and customer support, which includes comprehensive and confidential testing facilities open for all car manufacturers in the region.
Europe offers enormous potential for Tritium. Thus far, the company has been very successful in deploying charging infrastructure in the Utilities & Network sector and partnering with leading CPOs and back-end providers. The recent surge in new EV model launches in Europe has sparked increased interest in the Tritium Veefil range of 50kW Fast Chargers as well as Ultra-Fast Chargers (150-475kW), for both urban and corridor charging. Tritium is working closely with leading companies in the European Automotive and Petrol/Retail Industry, in order to provide the best suited and most efficient fast charging solution in the market.”
Hannover Messe is known world-wide as the number one trade fair for industrial technology. Over the course of the 2018 edition, over 220,000 visitors are expected to visit the 5,000 exhibitors. This year, Tritium can be found at Stand G45 in Hall 27.
