Singapore, July 1, 2020 – Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced the deployment of its Ultra Fast Charger to ComfortDelGro, a leading land transport operator in Singapore. This Ultra Fast Charger unveiled on 1 July 2020 is the first of its kind in Singapore and the nation’s fastest public commercial DC charger for taxis and EV owners.
The 100 kW Ultra Fast Charger is located in ComfortDelGro Engineering’s Loyang branch and can fast charge up to two vehicles at the same time. If two EVs are being charged simultaneously, the charging station’s power output is at least 50kW, enabling each EV to get a full charge in approximately 30 minutes.
Cecilia Ku, general manager of Delta Electronics Int’l (Singapore), said: “Delta is deeply committed to fostering e-mobility given our long-term focus on sustainable development through our broad range of energy-saving solutions. With close to 50 years of expertise in high-efficiency power electronics and experience in energy management, Delta aims to provide customers a one-stop service to build a future-proofed, more versatile and energy-efficient EV charging infrastructure capable of optimizing charging service and energy efficiency.”
Ang Soo Hock, CEO of ComfortDelGro Engineering, said: “While the interest in EVs continues to grow as more are looking to switch to greener options, charging time of EVs is still a key consideration. We hope that the introduction of faster charging solutions can help to alleviate those concerns and contribute to the development of a robust EV ecosystem in Singapore.”
Delta’s Ultra Fast Charger has a modular and future-proof system design that can easily upgrade later up to 150kW output power and can charge up to four EVs at once (two DC charging ports and two AC charging). It is a multi-standard, non-discriminative charger suitable for all available EVs today and in the foreseeable future.
As a smart solutions provider in Singapore, Delta is supporting Singapore’s electrification with its smart and efficient EV charging solutions that support e-Mobility in green smart cities of the future.
