ABB supports e-mobility progress in Romania with innovative charging solution

Suceava is one of the first cities in Romania to install bus terminals equipped with ABB heavy vehicle chargers, setting an example in the country

Suceava is one of the cities that proactively moved towards the adoption of urban e-mobility, powering its electric buses with ABB’s Heavy Vehicle Chargers (HVC) and Terra 54 HV DC fast chargers.

ABB has supplied thirty 50 kW Terra 54 HV charging stations, as well as thirteen 150 kW Heavy Vehicle Chargers to the Suceava Municipality, to power their electric bus fleet. The Terra 54 HV chargers will supply power for overnight charging of the buses, while the 150 kW ones will ensure the fast charging of the buses during the day, in the depot. The HVCs provide high charging power, thus safeguarding maximum vehicle availability.

The ABB solution installed in Suceava provides interoperability, being compatible with buses supplied by different manufacturers. The solution is also characterized by high performance and longevity as well as by simplicity of installation and efficiency, due to its easy and special connection to the grid. The chargers are already equipped to support future electric buses with 920 VDC charging capabilities. These features have been successfully proven by ABB in other countries in Europe such as Germany, Sweden and France.

“We are happy to support the Suceava Municipality in this important milestone, with this project serving as an example of moving towards a sustainable transport future. ABB is a global leader in DC fast charging solutions and we are ready to help more cities in Romania to build their e-mobility infrastructure.“ – said Erhan Savas, Country Managing Director for ABB in Romania.

“The high quality of the delivered equipment, as well as the flawless professionalism of the ABB technicians represent a guarantee for the Suceava Municipality in our effort to implement the integrated ecological public transportation system in Suceava ” – said Mr. Ion Lungu – Mayor of Suceava.

The electric bus chargers were manufactured in the ABB factory in Italy. ABB and the project leader, Loial Impex SRL, successfully completed the installation and commissioning of the equipment on time

ABB entered the e-mobility market back in 2010, and today has sold more than 400,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 85 markets; over 20,000 DC fast chargers and 380,000 AC chargers, including those sold through Chargedot. ABB received the Global E-mobility Leader 2019 award for its active role in advancing international adoption of zero-emission transport solutions. ABB offers products and services that provide a crucial contribution to increased sustainability in industry.

ABB offers in the e-mobility domain a complete range of ABB electric vehicle charging solutions in Romania, starting from 4.6 kW charging stations, up to 600 kW fast charging solutions, both for electric vehicles and for the fast charging of the electric buses, trolley buses, trams and trucks. ABB operates in Romania through four business areas: Electrification, Robotics & Discrete Automation, Motion and Process Automation.
