ABB and Eviny commission first Terra 360 in Norway

ABB has made the first installations in Norway of its Terra 360 charging station with up to 360 kW of power, which was unveiled last year. Together with Eviny, the Terra 360 was commissioned at the Oasen shopping center in Bergen and at the Geilo ski resort in Norway. The pilot installations are to be followed by a wider rollout in Norway and Sweden.

Thanks to dynamic power distribution, the charging stations can charge two vehicles at the same time. The maximum power is 360 kW, which is said to allow a range of 100 kilometers in less than three minutes. Fully charging an e-vehicle reportedly takes 15 minutes or less - as long as a suitable vehicle can also use this charging power. 2x 180 kW is likely to become the much more important application.

Eviny has more than 400 fast-charging stations in Norway, currently installed at more than 150 locations across the country. CEO Jannicke Hilland says ABB's Terra 360 is the best choice for Eviny's latest network expansion. "The transition to electric mobility is happening at a rapid pace here in Norway, and to continue leading the change we need the fastest chargers," she continues. "We are proud to be the first in the world to commission ABB's Terra 360."

ABB presented the Terra 360 in September of last year. According to the information provided by the Swiss manufacturer at the time, the charging system is particularly suitable for gas stations, shops and shopping centers, but can also be installed in commercial areas of companies to supply cars, vans and trucks with electricity. In addition to the high charging power, ABB cites the modular design and small footprint of the column as special qualities of the charging system.
