ABB e-mobility unveiled a new depot charging solution for electric truck and bus fleets at the UITP in Barcelona. 

Known as the HVC360, this system allows for the connection of up to four charging stations, regardless of connection type.

The control cabinet boasts a continuous charging power of up to 360kW. It enables the simultaneous connection of four charging stations at distances of up to 100 metres, which can even be extended to 150m with the “Long Distance Package”. The control cabinet supports all charging interfaces simultaneously, enabling the connection of various options such as the HVC Panto-down or Panto-up Depot Set and a CCS interface.

Speaking at the launch of the HVC360, Chris Nordh, Global Head of the Fleet & Transit business at ABB E-mobility said: “Today’s launch of the HVC360, on World Environment Day, represents yet further commitment from ABB E-mobility to meet the complex and sometimes operationally rigid needs of bus and truck fleet operators, and comes backed by decades of development and unrivaled field experience.

“Even more impressive than the unit’s exceptional quality and power density are its extraordinary flexibility and interoperability with a wide range of OEMs, making it a truly global solution. We are very excited to see how HVC360 helps customers of all shapes and sizes to reduce their running costs and emissions as the heavy vehicle sector catches up to the excellent progress already made in the electrification of passenger vehicles.”

Sales of the HVC360 are set to commence in late September.
