Brisbane-headquartered electric vehicle fast charger company Tritium has received an order for 110 units to be installed in the UK’s Osprey Charging Network.
The chargers will be installed at 40 sites according to a statement from the company, with many located in greater London, following an expansion of the city’s “ultra-low emissions zone”. The installations would increase Osprey’s network by 25 per cent.
Tritium CEO Jane Hunter said that the UK was switching briskly to electrification, with 15 per cent of new cars sold in September EVs.
“We’re so pleased to be working with Osprey to increase access to rapid charging and ease drivers’ transition to EVs through a fast, reliable and convenient charging experience,” she added.
CEO of the charging network, Ian Johnston, said, “Easy and intuitive user experiences are key to EV uptake, and Tritium excels in developing products that are not only relevant to the market, but also so easy to use.”
The news follows an announcement earlier this week that Tritium had executed a global framework agreement with the world’s largest mobility retailer, Shell, which owns over 46,000 retail sites globally, and has goals of operating 500,000 charge points by 2025 and 2,500,000 by 2030.
Tritium was founded in 2001 by University of Queensland SunShark team members for the World Solar Challenge.
It makes fast chargers with individual capacities from 50 kilowatt to 350 kilowatt, and is one of the world’s top sellers in this niche.
The company is expected to list on the NASDAQ in January 2022, the result of a deal with a US a special purpose acquisition company, Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation II, announced in May.
