Tritium has signed its largest-ever deal to supply its flagship Veefil-PK 350kW DC high power electric vehicle (EV) chargers to IONITY, the European electric car charging network.

Under the agreement, Tritium’s Veefil-PK 350 kW charging stations will be installed across 120 IONITY charging sites in Europe.

IONITY CEO Michael Hajesch said the contract will see an average of four to six chargers installed per site across 23 countries in Europe, giving IONITY the largest and fastest DC high power charging network in the world.

“We were looking for an excellent strategic partner able to run with us from the start and scale up our operations in Europe. Tritium obviously fits the bill,” Mr Hajesch added.

Tritium’s CEO and co-founder, David Finn said the deal – which also includes 24/7 remote and on-site support – will make Tritium the largest supplier to the IONITY network, with the company to supply its Veefil-PKs for at least 220 sites of the planned 400 sites across Europe.

“IONITY has a vision for electric vehicle charging which mirrors ours; it’s not just about the speed of the charge but the experience for customers,” said Mr Finn.

“These chargers will soon be ubiquitous along the highways of Europe and ensure that the increasing number of EV owners across the continent will be able to drive whenever and wherever they want.

“The sheer number of these chargers will all but eliminate range anxiety while enabling energy freedom and announces to the world that EVs are here to stay.”

According to the company, the rollout of the next wave of chargers is expected to be completed by 2020.
