ABB to help upgrade Japan's EV charging infrastructure

ABB is rolling out its new Terra 184 chargers in Japan to help modernise the country’s electric vehicle infrastructure.

The project is part of a broader push in Japan to increase the share of EVs and plug-in hybrids to between 20-30% by 2030, from just 1% in 2018.

eMP is a joint venture between Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) and Chubu Electric Power, two of Japan’s biggest utility companies.

To encourage the adoption of EVs, eMP is working to reduce charging congestion and increase accessibility to charging stations.

To modernize the EV charging infrastructure, eMP will replace obsolete chargers with more than 250 Terra 184 units.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin this autumn.

eMP will install the chargers at stores located on the roadside, along highways and other public places.

The Terra 184 charges have the ability to charge two EVs simultaneously.

Frank Muehlon, head of ABB’s global business for e-mobility infrastructure solutions, said: “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.”

ABB entered the EV-charging market a decade ago and has sold more than 14,000 DC fast chargers across more than 80 countries.
