/PRNewswire/ --
Belgium's
first smart fast charging network allows
carefree electric mobility for all EV drivers
VitaeMobility, specialists in e-mobility for business and government fleets and
consumers, and ABB, the leading power and automation technology group,
today announced a partnership to install and manage 50 Terra Smart Connect
(SC) DC fast chargers at multiple locations throughout
Belgium
. The company
specifically chose ABB's Terra Smart Connect (SC) as it is the only smart
connected charging station on the market that supports EV charging for
company fleets in 30-120 minutes. The first installations for the nationwide
network will be in place by the end of July.
Installing DC fast chargers is a necessary next step towards encouraging the
proliferation of electric vehicles. It provides drivers with convenient access to
state-of-the-art charging infrastructure and reduces range anxiety, a common
concern associated with EV ownership. The investment by VitaeMobility to
create a fast charging network complements its current business offering, such
as a smart car leasing concept, and further demonstrates the company's
commitment towards the ongoing development and support of EV
transportation and infrastructure grounded in a sustainable economic model.
The collaboration between ABB and VitaeMobility will enable the company to
continue its strong growth curve in the
Belgium
market. The EV charging
station infrastructure and services market is set to experience significant
growth reaching 1.6 million units globally by 2015, according to Pike Research.
"EV adoption offers more than energy efficient transportation; it helps cut our
dependency on carbon-producing foreign fuels, lessens our ecological footprint
by reducing emissions and makes economical sense since their maintenance
and operations are far less costly in the long run," said Gunter De Pooter,
Executive Director of VitaeMobility.
ABB will carry out the installations of the chargers and will deliver network
operating support services (NOC) and the backbone IT architecture which
provides each web-connected charger with a full range of connectivity
features, including remote assistance, management and servicing and smart
software upgradeability. Maintenance and repair services will be taken care of
by ABB's local support team in
Belgium
.
"Providing customers with data and software services is critical to shifting driver
behavior towards cleaner alternatives," said Hans Streng, General Manager of
ABB's EV charging infrastructure group. "ABB's charging infrastructure offering
takes into consideration the entire e-mobility spectrum; from SMART grid
interface and software services to technology offerings that allow customers to
tailor chargers to their own needs such as their own billing solutions. This will
create a more direct relationship with EV drivers."
