Australia’s own global electric-car charging provider Tritium, on track to IPO on the NASDAQ by year’s end, has picked up a prestigious international award as Chargepoint Manufacturer of the Year.
The Electric Vehicle Innovation & Excellence (EVIE) Award ceremony was held last week on the first night of the EV World Congress in Bristol, UK.
“In a tightly contested category, Tritium stood out within the Chargepoint Manufacturer of the Year shortlist at this year’s EVIE Awards, hosted by Solar Media,” said the EVIE Awards judges.
“The judges praised the liquid cooling technology used by Tritium and their global footprint in particular, with Tritium a thoroughly deserving winner of this award.”
Tritium’s product line includes chargers ranging from 50kW to 350kW. The PK350, presently the company’s most powerful DC fast charger, makes up the majority of the Ionity network across Europe.
This award comes on the heels of Tritium’s recent Good Design Awards for excellence in product and engineering design for the company’s RTM electric vehicle DC fast charger.
Tritium’s is the only fully liquid-cooled, IP65 waterproof-rated charger, claiming to cut total cost of ownership by up to 37 per cent for operators over 10 years compared with air-cooled systems.
Tritium has a global sales and service footprint covering four continents, providing more than 5250 DC fast chargers in 41 countries.
“This recognition is a major vote of confidence from the EV industry and industry peers,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter.
“Across our business, we aim to set ourselves apart by delivering best-in-class technology, customer satisfaction and operational excellence, going above and beyond to expedite the transition to e-mobility,” the ex-Boeing executive said.
“The global EV industry is rapidly expanding, and we’re preparing to grow and expand our market share to become the first choice in DC fast charging technology.”
