Tritium to become sole supplier of rapid chargers for UK’s DRIVE ENERGI

Tritium, a manufacturer of fast chargers, has signed a deal with BOX ENERGI to be the sole supplier of rapid chargers for the DRIVE ENERGI charging network currently in development in the UK.

DRIVE ENERGI aims to install 2,500 charging locations by 2025, with at least 100 sites live by the end of January 2020. Each site will feature up to two Tritium Veefil-RT 50 kW DC Rapid Chargers and a number of AC chargers. The network will include both public charging stations and private charging solutions, which will cater to fleets.

Tritium will assist in the installation of the chargers and supply 24/7 support for the network, including on-site support.

Tritium recently opened E-Mobility Innovation Centers in Brisbane and Amsterdam. The new and upgraded facilities will allow the company to ramp up its R&D and increase production levels. The DRIVE ENERGI network is slated to be Tritium’s largest deployment of Veefil-RT 50 kW DC Rapid Chargers for a single network.

“We chose to work with Tritium because its technology is proven and its chargers are reliable, robust and trustworthy,” said James Moat, CEO of DRIVE ENERGI. “These chargers are not only the fastest and most advanced in their class, but incredibly easy to use and, with the world’s smallest physical footprint, to deploy as well – particularly in our cities and high-density areas where space is increasingly limited.”
