British-Dutch oil major Shell has expanded into the US, installing its first electric vehicle chargers under the Shell Recharge brand at Boston’s Logan airport – choosing designed-in-Australia chargers from Tritium.
Installed by Shell member and EV charging provider Greenlots, the occasion was noted by Shell electric mobility manager Steve Bean on networking site Linked In.
The units are 50kW Veefil-RT DC fast-chargers from Brisbane-based Tritium which can add around 150km range to an electric vehicle in about 30 minutes.
The US is part of Tritium’s increasing global footprint; in addition to several customer partnerships such as the one with Greenlots in the US, it also has a presence in Europe through the Ionity charging network, and of course in Australia – 30 countries in total.
In addition to its Veefil-RT 50kW chargers it also makes 350kW Veefil-PK ultra-rapid chargers that make up part of a growing network across the Australian eastern seaboad, Perth and Tasmania.
