Tritium has signed a partnership with IONITY under which it will construct 100 high-power charging (HPC) sites across Germany, France, the UK, Norway and Sweden

IONITY has chosen Tritium as its technology partner for the construction of 100 high-power charging sites across Germany, France, the UK, Norway and Sweden.

The dedicated electric vehicle charging stations will have an average of up to six user units, each capable of delivering 350 kW of power for fast charging of modern EVs, all equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) used by a wide range of vehicle manufactures.

“We chose to partner with Tritium because they have a world-leading technology and have shown they can develop and deliver their products quickly,” said IONITY CEO Michael Hajesch.

The deal follows closely on the installation of two new sites in Germany at Tank and Rast rest stops at Brohltal East and Brohltal West. As the first sites to go live for IONITY in Europe, these two sites each have six high-power user units and form part of a planned rollout of around 400 EV charging sites across Europe. This will ensure EV owners will always have access to a high-power charging station within 120 km.

“We already have a leading position in the European fast-charging market and could see that demand was really taking off. Which is one of the reasons we recently opened our new sales, testing and assembly facility in Amsterdam,” said CEO and founder at Tritium David Finn . “This deal with IONITY shows just how fast the transition to EVs is happening.”

Each of the Tritium high-power chargers on the IONITY sites will deliver up to 350 kW, which can add 150 km of driving range to an EV in just five minutes. They include Tritium’s unique and innovative liquid-cooled technology and the complete charging infrastructure is extremely compact, typically up to 50-75% smaller than other systems on the market.
