The Veefil Fast Charger, designed and manufactured in Australia by Brisbane-based Tritium, has already won a design award for its striking appearance. This week, on a more practical note, it earned a certificate of UL compliance for the US and Canada. Already compliant for operation in Europe and Australia, the Veefil can now be sold worldwide.
“We are one of the first UL-approved EV fast chargers with multi-standard support for both the CHAdeMO and CCS fast charging standards,” said Paul Sernia, Tritium’s Commercial Director. “It is widely acknowledged that publicly available fast-charging infrastructure is critical for giving drivers the confidence to drive EVs the way they want to. When this happens, the number of electric cars in use globally will surge. In places like the US, Europe and Asia there are thousands of charging outlets that are used by about 200,000 electric cars. In five to six years, that will be millions.”
In preparation to supply this growing market, Tritium recently announced an agreement with Shanghai-based manufacturer Surpass Sun Electric. While manufacturing for the home market in Australia will continue in Brisbane, volume sales of Veefil for the global market will be processed in China.
Designed for use in locations such as shopping centers, airports and highway service centers, the Veefil is available in a variety of bright colors. Its slimline form factor gives it an extra-small footprint and light weight (165 kg), and it’s liquid-cooled in order to withstand extreme weather conditions.
