ABB has received an order for 324 more high-power electric vehicle (EV) chargers from Ionity. The 350kW-chargers are to be rolled out in 24 countries by the end of 2020 as part of the second phase of its network expansion.

ABB was previously commissioned in 2018 as technology partner to deliver 340 high-power chargers to Ionity and was the first to market in Europe with 350kW chargers featuring liquid cooled cables, enabling a charging speed of 200km in eight minutes.

Ionity, a joint venture between BMW Group, Daimler, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group, has to date opened 202 charging sites across 18 European markets.

Michael Hajesch, managing director at Ionity, said, “ABB is one of our preferred technology partners for high-power chargers all over Europe. With their new customized design launched with Ionity, they are continuing to expand the market.”
