ABB and Volvo partner for electric and hybrid bus fast-charging
By Anthony Capkun
The cooperation creates a city-wide standardized charging system for electric and electric hybrid buses that can charge buses quickly through an automatic roof-top connection system at bus stops or through cabled charging systems overnight.
This approach enables maximum reuse of existing e-mobility technologies, says ABB, thereby ensuring a “rapid deployment of urban e-mobility” (download the Infographic below). The partnership focuses entirely on the standardization of automatic e-bus fast charging, including the communications protocol between the infrastructure charging solution and e-bus, the electrical interface and specifications for the rooftop automatic connection system (ACS).
