ABB bags contract from Fastned to supply EV chargers
Fastned is building a network of 200 electric-vehicle charging stations along highways in Netherlands and will be equipped with several multi-standard fast chargers, the company said in a statement.
The first ABB terra fast chargers are expected to be delivered in September and the construction of the stations, which will have solar canopies, is scheduled to be completed by 2015, it said.
"Netherlands is the most populous country to roll out a nationwide fast-charging network. Fast-chargers will be located a maximum of 50 kms apart along all highways, and because of ABB's multi-standard design, the network will be capable of serving EVs offered by all major car brands from Europe, Asia and the USA," ABB Executive Committee Member Ulrich Spiesshofer said.
