Tirex Transmission bags HPCL’s contract to set up EV chargers at outlets across Gujarat and Rajasthan
Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL) has announced that it has awarded a contract to Tirex Transmission, an EV charging solutions provider, to set up more than 60 EV chargers at its fuel stations in Gujarat and Rajasthan.
The company, in a statement, said, that it has supplied EV chargers to NTPC, KSEBL, Power Grid, Ashok Leyland, Olectra, and more.
As part of the contract, Tirex shall supply two types of DC fast chargers for this project – one rated between 25 to 30 kW with a single connector option of CCS2, and the other type is rated between 50 to 60 kW, with combinations of connectors per the requirement.
They come with the provision of two CCS (Combined Charging System) type output connectors that will allow charging more than one vehicle simultaneously by using shared power. That will help to avoid long queues in the EV charging stations.
These chargers will be compatible with most new-age electric vehicles available in India. This contract adds another 3MW to Tirex's existing supply of more than 20MW worth of chargers across India.
The government of India has recognized addressing the issue of climate change as the need of the hour. As a result, like many other initiatives and projects of the Government of India to encourage people to switch to an electric vehicles, the project of deploying EV charging stations by Hindustan Petroleum is among them.
