ABB to support Shell’s global EV charging ambitions
ABB E-mobility signs new global framework agreement (GFA) with Shell to supply its full portfolio of charging solutions
• The GFA builds on a long-standing partnership between the two companies and will see ABB E-mobility support Shell in creating a global charging network
• Charging solutions supplied by ABB will include Terra 360, the world’s fastest all-in-one electric car charger
ABB E-mobility and Shell are taking their collaboration to the next level to bring flexible and quality charging to millions of electric vehicle drivers.
As a leader in EV charging infrastructure, ABB E-mobility has signed a new global framework agreement with Shell to supply ABB’s end-to-end portfolio of AC and DC charging stations. The portfolio ranges from the AC wallbox for home, work or retail installations to the Terra 360 which is ideal for refueling stations, urban charging stations, retail parking and fleet applications.
Through this collaboration, ABB E-mobility and Shell will help address two of the challenges to increasing EV adoption. Firstly, charging infrastructure availability, with Shell targeting the operation of over 500,000 charge points globally by 2025 and 2,500,000 by 2030, either at residential, commercial or Shell retail sites. Secondly, the speed of charging, with ABB’s portfolio of charging stations including its Terra 360 charger.
Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility commented: “In line with our mutual involvement in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, both ABB and Shell are innovating to drive progress in
e-mobility. We have been working together on the roll-out of public charging infrastructure since 2019 and this latest agreement takes that collaboration to the next level.
“We are excited to support Shell in realizing its objective to create a global charging network. With access to the full breadth of our charging portfolio, we are ensuring that Shell can select the most appropriate solution for every use case, helping to get more people charging regardless of their location.”
