Shell has selected Tritium to provide DC fast chargers for its ever-growing electric vehicle charging network.
Tritium took part in Shell’s tendering process, winning the bid to be the manufacturer of choice for Shell’s new DC fast chargers across the globe. Its winning bid will see Tritium DC fast chargers rolled out to Shell charging stations across the globe, including in Europe, South Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America.
Earlier this year, Shell announced a commitment to install 50,000 chargers in the UK by 2025, although many of those will be standard 7 kW chargers, while globally the company hopes that it’ll have a total of 2,500,000 chargers by 2030.
“This is a great opportunity for Tritium. We have been selling EV charging infrastructure to Shell since 2020 and we’re thrilled to have been selected as a partner to Shell in this latest tender. It’s a vote of confidence in Tritium’s products and services and we look forward to supporting Shell in their endeavours to reduce emissions and enable the rapid electrification of transportation,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter.
“Tritium technology has been designed to provide fast, rugged and reliable charging in any environment, and we look forward to working with Shell and its affiliates to deploy DC fast charging infrastructure all over the world.”Earlier this year, Tritium announced another partnership with Ecotricity to upgrade its Electric Highway network with new 350 kW chargers, while Osprey installed the first Tritium RTM75 rapid chargers in Europe in April. It’s not known which chargers Shell will select as part of its partnership.
