Australian EV refuelling company Tritium has again demonstrated why it is one of the pinups for Australia’s new advanced-manufacturing-led prosperity with the launch of its world’s first scalable charging platform.
Modular Scalable Charging (MSC) is the key to unlock the future-proofing of charger networks. With MSC, if you want to scale up your units you don’t have to change out the main infrastructure, because MSC-designed chargers can scale up in 25kW increments. This means that customers, network operators, governments and the like, will not only have freedom of choice other than a set of prefabricated charging options, but will also be able to shift, say, from 50kW (fast or rapid chargers), up to 175kW or 350kW (high power or ultra-fast chargers).
When pv magazine Australia spoke to Tritium CEO Jane Hunter in August, she noted that the then up-and-coming scalable solution “will allow our products to be future proofed in that, if you start at 25 and you want to add to the box, you don’t have to change out the main infrastructure.”
“This has been something the industry and our customers have asked for over the years,” said Hunter in a release statement, “and we are the first company in the world to deliver it. This solution is future-proofing governments and network operators across the globe something they have been crying out for. No longer is a charger just a charger; instead, it’s a first step to meet the needs of both today’s and tomorrow’s electric vehicles.”
Now, Tritium is not one of these companies that is satisfied with unveiling one thing at a time. In much the same way V. S. Naipaul described good literature as doing at least two things at once, Tritium unveiled MSC in tandem with its next-gen RTM75 DC Fast Charger, a unit which adds 75km of range to an EV in 10 minutes of charging. Of course, the slim charger is also able to charge two vehicles simultaneously and is equipped with Plug and Charge technology.
“The electrification of transportation is at tipping point,” said Tritium Founder and Chief Growth Officer, David Finn, “so our customers want to know how they can easily extend their charging site capacity over the coming years. They want no regrets and capital efficient scaling on their charging sites.”
