Brisbane-based DC fast charging manufacturer Tritium has secured another order for its DC fast chargers after OK, Denmark’s largest fuel retailer, announced the purchase this week of more than 300 for deployment across the country.
OK currently owns more than 670 fuel stations across Denmark and is planning to deploy more than 300 Tritium DC fast chargers at fuel stations, on highways, in urban areas, and retail sites, as well as to power its own corporate fleet and other fleet customers.
Deploying Tritium DC fast chargers is part of OK’s plans to support the expansion of Denmark’s public charging infrastructure, in line with the Danish government’s goal of reaching at least 775,000 electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles on the roads by 2030.
Denmark’s government is hoping that such an increase in PHEVs and EVs will help to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 70%.
“In 2022, nearly 40% of cars sold in Denmark were electric or plug-in hybrids, providing evidence of the Danish technology transition and solidifying Denmark’s position as a global leader in the transition to sustainable transportation,” said Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO.
Tritium has already shipped a portion of OK’s purchase and successfully launched the first of its Tritium 75kW modular chargers at the Super Brugsen store in Hillerød and the Kvickly store in Odder, Denmark.
Meanwhile, tritium says it will add more than 250 jobs to the total anticipated workforce at its Lebanon, Tennessee factory. The Company also shared the recent achievement of International Organization for Standardization (“ISO”) certifications at the facility.
