Shell accelerates on electricity: with ABB in Germany a network to recharge at 360 kW


A capillary network for fast charging & egrave; very important to allow electric cars to refuel quickly and be able to travel even over long distances without problems. On this issue comes an important novelty; concerning Germany. In this country, it will soon be; available a network of stations capable of allowing cars to be recharged at a peak power up to 360 kW provided, of course, that the cars support this power level.

Recently, Shell announced an agreement with ABB to the supply of charging stations, a project for the creation of a large and capillary infrastructure to offer electric cars the possibility; to fill up with energy without problems. As part of this project, news comes that Shell and ABB have announced that they want create a network made up of 200 Terra 360 columns in Germany. The installation should be completed within 12 months.


The Terra 360 column network will be; powered by renewable energy and will help & agrave; to meet the growing German demand for electric vehicle charging infrastructures, further accelerating this form of mobility; within the country. The columns, as mentioned at the beginning, can supply a car up to a peak power of 360 kW. ABB's product & egrave; available in different configurations.

In fact, the charging stations can refuel more than one at the same time; vehicles dynamically managing energy. Another interesting aspect of these infrastructures developed by ABB, the fact that they are also for drivers who have mobility; reduced . In fact, they integrate an ergonomic cable management system that helps drivers to connect the car easily.

In these columns there is; also a little of Italy . In fact, the company builds its columns at the factory in San Giovanni Valdarno (Arezzo) . Finally, remember that Shell intends to manage more; 500,000 electric vehicle charging points worldwide by 2025, including more; 30,000 charging points located in places such as Shell service areas and supermarkets. And after Germany will be & agrave; the turn of other countries as well, although no details have been provided on the matter. Istv & aacute; n Kapit & aacute; ny , Global Executive Vice President of Shell Mobility, commented:

At Shell, we aim to be the leader in electric vehicle charging by offering our customers charging when and where & egrave; convenient for them. For drivers, especially those on long journeys, the speed; charging & egrave; fundamental and every minute of waiting can & ograve; make a big difference to their journey. For fleet owners, speed & egrave; important for charging during the day because & eacute; keeps fleets of electric vehicles moving. This is serious; why, through our partnership with ABB, we are delighted to offer our customers the best recharge; as fast as possible, first in Germany and soon in other markets.


This announcement is; also important because & eacute; demonstrates once again how investments in fast charging networks are growing . Just recently, BP and Volkswagen announced an agreement to install up to 8,000 high-power charging points in Europe (4,000 in Germany and the UK alone).

We can't help but remember the Volkswagen project with Enel X for the construction of 3,000 HPC charging points in Italy by 2025.
