US electric bus builder Proterra has placed an order with Australian EVSE manufacturer Tritium for 57 Veefil-RT 50 kW DC fast chargers. The chargers will be manufactured at Tritium’s recently opened manufacturing facility in Torrance, California, and will be available to Proterra customers across the US.
Tritium worked closely with the Proterra team to provide a series of modifications to the software to meet the bus-maker’s requirements.
“We aim to partner with like-minded companies,” explains Matt Horton, Chief Commercial Officer at Proterra. “Proterra needed to source a reliable, standards-based J1772 CCS plug-in charger for our Catalyst range of buses and were looking for a supplier with the capability to tailor their product to our specifications.”
“The US is a major market for us, and now we have a sales and manufacturing facility in the country that replicates the high standards we’ve established at our global HQ in Brisbane, we are ideally placed to offer not only bespoke requirements, but also a full after-sales service to clients,” said Tritium’s US head, Greg Lary.
