ABB multi-standard fast charger receives EU safety certification

European electronics giant ABB has received CE marking approval for its 50 kW Terra 53 CCS DC fast charging station. The CE mark demonstrates compliance with all relevant European Union safety regulations.

The Terra 53 supports both the CCS and CHAdeMO DC fast charging standards, making it compatible with every EV on European roads, and hopefully ending the European fast charging war before it starts.

“To support the rollout of nationwide charging networks in Estonia, Denmark, Northern Ireland, The Netherlands and more to come, we’ve been relentlessly focused on adhering to industry-leading public standards of connectivity, quality and reliability,” said Senior VP Hans Streng.

ABB recently participated in BMW and Volkswagen’s Interoperabilty workshops with the Terra 53 and demonstrated successful charging of the next generation of CCS-compatible EVs.
