Yurika to distribute Siemen's EV charging equipment in Australia
To address Australia's growing EV market, Siemens has announced its first distribution agreement in the country with Yurika, a Queensland-based energy company, to supply the largest stock and diverse range of EV charging equipment. The agreement will also enable Yurika to provide end-to-end EV charging consultation, design, installation, and other related services from the grid to vehicle.
Yurika will distribute the complete range of Siemens' EV charging equipment used by bus operators, fleet managers, charge point operators and electrical contractors. The initial order will include Versicharge 7kw–22kw AC, Sicharge CC 22kW AC commercial, Sicharge D 160kW–300kW DC fast charging, and Sicharge UC 100kW–800kW industrial DC from the portfolio and will reduce lead times for customers.
Jeff Connolly, Chairman, and CEO of Siemens Australia Pacific said "As we reach our 150 years milestone serving the Australia Pacific region, Siemens is proud to grow alongside our customers in the fast-paced e-mobility market through the ingenuity of our technology. We are pleased to strengthen and build on our successful, long-standing relationship with Energy Queensland through this strong partnership with Yurika to develop local capability into the growing EV infrastructure market."
"With Australia embracing a net-zero emissions target by 2050, we must also quickly adopt technologies such as e-charging infrastructure that play an important role in the ongoing decarbonization of transport fleets. Our role as a global technology leader is to bring the best-in-class technology to the local market so we can help transform the everyday. By partnering with Yurika, Siemens gains an excellent delivery partner for e-charging projects of all size in Australia".
Carly Irving, Executive General Manager at Yurika, highlighted the importance of having access to flexible and scalable global technology locally. "With electric vehicle fleets continuing to expand, local support is critical to accelerate project deliveries. Siemens' e-mobility charging portfolio is proven in many parts of the world and is a natural fit for Australia's growing EV market. Our large stock holding will ensure customers can access the equipment and services they need when they need it".
Yurika will also build a demonstration trailer to highlight to the market the load management capability of Siemens' Versicharge AC range, capable of producing up to 22 kW. Siemens' EV charging portfolio includes:
- Versicharge AC Smart Wall box (7.2kW-22kW) with smart connectivity and load management options as standard.
