ABB Chargers Selected to Support Japan’s EV Infrastructure

Industry News – Thursday, August 06, 2020

e-Mobility Power Co., Inc. (eMP) aims to modernize the charging infrastructure to increase the share of EV’s and plug-in hybrids to 20-30 percent by 2030.

To reach this goal, the joint venture between two of Japan’s biggest utility companies TEPCO and Chubu Electric Power wants to increase the speed and convenience of charging as well as the accessibility to charging stations. Obsolete chargers will be replaced with ABB’s newly launched Terra 184 compact chargers, with deliveries scheduled for this fall. The new chargers are able to charge up to two vehicles at the same time and will be installed at roadside storages, along highways and in other public places.

“TEPCO, eMP’s main shareholder led the development of the CHAdeMO charging standard which started the e-mobility revolution. We are therefore highly honored to have been selected by e-Mobility Power Co. as Japan works to transition to a new and sustainable mobility future,” says Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB E-mobility Infrastructure Solutions.
