Electric cars are picking up steam or, rather, momentum, with more units being sold as people look toward cleaner and less polluting means of personal transport. With that in mind, the first public DC fast charger in New Delhi has been installed by ABB India Limited together with with EV Motors India, the major charge point operator for BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL), a joint venture between the Government of Delhi and Reliance Infrastructure Limited. The Terra54 CJG charging station  caters to multiple charging protocols of CCS2, CHadeMO and AC Type 2.

This Terra54 CJG DC fast charging station marks the first public installation of a DC fast charger for BYPL. It is a cloud-connected charger that will be linked through Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) 1.6 to EV Motors’ backend office. Passengers will be able to charge their cars in about 40-50 minutes from zero to 80 per cent. All DC fast chargers come with connected services to help customers easily connect using different software systems including back-office payment platforms, Energy Management Online Solutions and smart remote diagnostics, which ensures significant uptime value.

ABB are a global leader in electric mobility, and currently have more than 14,000 DC fast chargers installed across more than 80 countries. The company also recently announced that it will provide the charging technology for the Gen3 cars in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – the first global all-electric racing series.

CP Vyas, President, Electrification business, ABB India, said, “We are privileged to be a partner in India’s quest for sustainable mobility with clean energy and smart solutions.
