ABB to supply 50 CCS (Combo) fast chargers for EVs to CLEVER in Denmark

18 December 2013

ABB has been selected by the leading Danish electric-mobility operator CLEVER to supply 50 CCS (Combo) compatible DC fast chargers for CLEVER’s country-wide network. This order follows an earlier roll-out of 50 ABB DC fast chargers at the beginning of 2013 and brings CLEVER’s total nationwide network of DC fast chargers to 100 locations. CLEVER’s network comprises both AC and DC chargers, supporting all EVs on the Danish market.

CLEVER chose ABB’s Terra 53 product, equipped with a CCS connector, for all sites in order to support new electric cars equipped with the CCS fast-charging system, such as the VW e-UP! and BMW i3. The first CLEVER DC fast charger at a Shell gasoline station in Denmark was inaugurated earlier this month by the Danish Minister of Transport, Pia Olsen Dyhr, marking the installation of the first commercial CCS fast charger in Denmark.

ABB provides the chargers and software solutions for remote servicing as well as connectivity to subscriber management and payment systems. Each web-connected ABB fast charger has a wide range of connectivity features, including remote assistance, management and servicing, and smart software upgrades. ABB supports all fast-charging standards and protocols such as CCS, which is critical to maintain compatibility between rapidly evolving cars and chargers in the years ahead. This compatibility will also allow CLEVER to maintain a reliable service and to upgrade its network as the technology evolves.

CLEVER’s strategy is to follow the car and that’s why we, as Denmark’s leading electric-mobility operator, establish charging stations for all types of electric vehicles available in the Danish market. This means that you can always be sure that there are (fast-)charging stations in our network to match your electric vehicle. Electric vehicles and charging go together, and it is critical that we deliver a charging infrastructure which is compatible and reliable.

—CLEVER CEO, Lars Bording

CLEVER’s deployment of fast chargers in Denmark is well-established and due to ownership by five large Danish utilities CLEVER has a long term strategy for building up the EV-market.

The CCS chargers will be implemented on CLEVER’s backend system and CLEVER will deploy the installations throughout 2014. Maintenance and repair services will be taken care by ABB’s local support team in Denmark.

Way to go Denmark. With 100+ public fast chargers this is the equivalent (for same density) of 21,800 fast chargers in USA?

Secondly, those 100+ fast chargers will be fed mostly with clean Wind power?

A good example to follow?

CORRECTION.. Should read ..........Danemark............
