Although the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has affected the rhythm of growth of our country, the pre-planned projects are still continuing. With a view to supporting India’s dream for faster transformation to the electric transportation era, ABB India limited has recently installed its first Public DC fast charger in New Delhi with EV Motors India, the major charge point operator for BSES Yamuna Power Limited. The Deputy Chief Minister of New Delhi, Manish Sisodia inaugurated the Terra54 CJG charging station, which caters to multiple charging protocols of CCS2, CHadeMO and AC Type 2.
During the inauguration ceremony, Prem R Kumar, CEO, BSES Yamuna Power Limited and Amit B Gupta, Head – Delhi NCR and Rajasthan cluster, ABB India were also present. This ABB charging station is also the first public installation of a DC fast charger for BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL), a joint venture between the Government of Delhi and Reliance Infrastructure Limited.
The Terra54 is a cloud-connected charger that will be linked through Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) 1.6 to EV Motors’ backend office. Passengers will be able to charge their cars in about 40-50 minutes from 0 to 80%. All ABB chargers come with connected services, which help customers easily connect their chargers to different software systems like back-offices, payment platforms, Energy Management Online Solutions and smart remote diagnostics that ensures significant uptime value.
