ABB installs electric vehicle fast charger station at NITI Aayog
Supporting Indian government’s drive to systematically transform the nation's transportation base to electric vehicles, ABB installed fast charger station at NITI Aayog today.
The think tank has installed an ABB Terra 53 fast charging station for electric vehicles at the organization’s office in Delhi.
The installation by ABB, a global leader in electric vehicle charging, supports recent proposals by the Ministry of Highways and Transportation and NITI Aayog, which include a pilot project in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Delhi.
ABB’s 50kW fast charging station can provide a full charge to an electric vehicle in only 30 minutes.

“We are thankful and honoured to support Indian Government's thought leadership and drive to systematically transform the nation's transportation base to electric vehicles. ABB reinforces its commitment to the nation’s future of renewable power generation and clean electric transportation with our global technologies made in India,’’ said Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director of ABB India.
“We will continue to deploy and leverage the next level of global, open standard technology to provide the best-in-class reliable and cost-effective EV charging experience for Indian citizens living in smart cities. We believe that smart cities are made of smart elements and ABB EV Charging technology is one such important element,” Sharma added.
NITI Aayog is working to implement the United Nation’s sustainable development goals, which include clean, affordable energy and smart, sustainable cities. Led by the Ministry of Transportation and Highways, NITI Aayog is spearheading the electric mobility vision framework in the country.
The Terra 53 is based on international charging standards for EVs. The charger converts alternating current (AC) from the grid to the direct current (DC) used by EV batteries. But it can also work with EVs that use AC charging.
The Terra 53 can take advantage of the ABB Ability Connected Services digital networking suite portfolio to link the charging station to payment platforms and smart grid systems. The cloud-based ABB Ability connection also makes possible smart trip planning for travellers by indicating where the next recharge stop will be.
