Swedish-Swiss global technology company ABB has struck a ten-year deal to provide Copenhagen Airport with 1,350 electric vehicle chargers, in the process making the airport Denmark’s largest site for electric vehicle charging. The first 180 AC chargers and 15 DC fast chargers will be installed in 2022 through a procurement deal with Danish renewable energy group EWII.
“We are pleased to support Copenhagen Airport in its sustainable transition with our broad portfolio of quality and professional charging solutions”, said Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility. “We are convinced that it will not only serve as inspiration for other airports in Denmark but also in other countries and that it will again demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of clean, quiet and flexible electric mobility.”
The aim it to provide EV charging for the 80,000 travellers and employees using the site daily, and also serving vehicles in need of faster charging including taxis dropping off travellers and businesses operating inside the airport handling transportation, luggage and catering.
EWII and the airport have lined up a number of partners, including ABB, to supply the 1,350 charging points. The charging infrastructure will consist of chargers from ABB’s entire portfolio, from the 22kW Terra AC wallbox to the recently launched Terra 360, the world’s fastest all-in-one electric car charger, which can deliver 100km of range in less than three minutes and is the only charger designed explicitly to charge up to four vehicles at once.
”With ABB as our e-mobility partner, we are assured access to a wide range of solutions that can charge everything from cars to buses and trucks. Additionally, it was crucial for us and the airport that the charging stations be both reliable and of the highest quality,” says Jesper Nicolaisen, Head of Wholesale at EWII.
