Brisbane-based fast-charger developer Tritium has inked a deal with Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a world leader in fuel technology dispensing systems that will see GVR take a minor investment in the company to increase its global presence in the EV charging market.
Tritium has been busy of late, having been selected to receive a significant amount of US Department of Energy funding with a view to developing smaller, ultra fast chargers that are not reliant on transformers to connect them to a medium voltage grid.
It has also had a bumper year in inking deals to supply its Veefil-PK HPC systems to the IONITY network (a joint charging venture between BMW, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen) throughout Europe, as well as supplying fast chargers to customers in the US and elsewhere, and to NRMA in NSW – 26 countries worldwide in total.
The new investment from Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a subsidiary of multinational Fortive Corporation, will also see the tech leader handling all sales of Tritium’s EV chargers, which include the ultra fast Veefil-PK chargers, capable of charging EVs to full within just 5-10 minutes.
