IONITY, a joint venture of several automakers that’s building a fast charging network in Europe, has chosen Brisbane-based Tritium as its technology partner for the construction of 100 high-power charging sites in Germany, France, UK, Norway and Sweden.
Each station will have up to six chargers, each capable of delivering 350 kW of power. Tritium’s chargers feature a proprietary liquid-cooled technology and are designed to be extremely compact – up to 75% smaller than competing units, according to the company.
“We already have a leading position in the European fast-charging market and could see that demand was really taking off, which is one of the reasons we recently opened our new sales, testing and assembly facility in Amsterdam,” said Tritium founder and CEO David Finn.
“We chose to partner with Tritium because they have a world-leading technology and have shown they can develop and deliver their products quickly,” said IONITY CEO Michael Hajesch.
