By Anthony Capkun
April 28, 2022 – Under a new global framework agreement, ABB E-mobility will supply its portfolio of AC and DC charging stations for electric vehicles to Shell.
“We have been working together on the roll-out of public charging infrastructure since 2019, and this latest agreement takes that collaboration to the next level,” said Frank Muehlon, CEO, ABB E-mobility.
Shell is targeting the operation of over 500,000 charge points globally by 2025, and 2,500,000 by 2030, either at residential, commercial or Shell retail sites.
“With access to the full breadth of our charging portfolio, we are ensuring that Shell can select the most appropriate solution for every use case, helping to get more people charging regardless of their location,” Muehlon continued.
ABB’s charging portfolio ranges anywhere from an AC wallbox for home, work or retail installations, to the Terra 360, which is suited to refuelling stations and fleet applications.
The company as sold more than 680,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 85 markets, says the company, which is also the title partner of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
