The Queensland (Australia) Government has made a A$2.5-million (US$1.87 million) investment in Brisbane-based technology developer and manufacturer Tritium—the first company to receive investment under a new Business Development Fund (BDF) scheme established to encourage innovative businesses. The BDF investment has been matched by an additional $2.5m raised from private investors and will help accelerate international growth of the company’s Veefil fast charger for electric vehicles.

Tritium is the only Australian company to design and manufacture EV charging stations, noted David Finn, Tritium’s Managing Director. Veefil units are installed globally on major charging networks and fast-charging highways.
The 50 kW Veefil supports both of the CHAdeMO and SAE J1772 Combo connector standards. Supply voltage is 400-415V AC 3ø; max supply current is 85A (AC). The compact Veefil is 2000(H) x 750 (W) x 330(D) mm.
