ABB and Bornes Québec to expand EV charging infrastructure
ABB will supply electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for Bornes Québec’s customers across Québec.
Quebec has 47 per cent of Canada’s EVs and OHVs. With its 2030 Plan for a Green Economy, Quebec aims to eliminate the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035, increase the number of EV’s in public transit (55 per cent of city buses and 65 per cent of school buses electrified by 2030), reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 37.5 per cent and investments in the local economy will grow (budget of $6.7 billion).
“ABB’s values are like those of Bornes Québec, both in terms of innovation and environmental protection. We are confident that this agreement will result in world-class, sustainable solutions for our customers,” said Maurice Côté, President, Bornes Québec.
As part of this agreement, ABB’s charging stations will be available to all Bornes Québec customers across the province. ABB will supply three types of charging solutions: its 7kW AC wallbox chargers, its 24kW DC wallbox chargers, which offer fast-charging in an ultra-compact footprint, and the 50kW Terra 54 fast charger, which can provide a “quick refill” by adding 100 kilometres in as little as 25 minutes.
“We are pleased to partner with Bornes Québec who shares our vision for the electrification of transportation. This collaboration will enable the implementation of safe, smart and sustainable charging infrastructure throughout the province of Quebec. As the number of EVs continues to grow, this agreement provides an excellent opportunity to pave the way for a greener future,” said John A. Ieraci, Division Manager, EV Charging Infrastructure, ABB.
