Tritium lands huge order from BP Pulse for EV charging stations

Tritium's largest order to date will deliver fast chargers across the U.S., UK, and Australia.

Electric vehicle power supply manufacturer Tritium just received a fresh order for DC fast chargers from BP Pulse, the EV division of oil and gas conglomerate BP.

The purchase means that as EV adoption rises and government-mandated dates to phase out combustion cars approach, there will soon be even more chargers available.

According to BP Pulse CEO Richard Bartlett, “We’re looking forward to putting these chargers to work across three continents.” BP Pulse currently manages about 60 charging stations in the UK and is looking to grow in Australia, Europe, and the U.S.

In order to assist in the development of a comprehensive fast-charging network in the U.S., Tritium teamed with DC-America in October. The majority of Tritium’s 50 and 150-kWh DC chargers are made in Lebanon, Tennessee, at the company’s recently established facilities.

Tritium CEO Jane Hunter stated, “Tritium envisions a society in which quick EV charging is ubiquitous.” We appreciate the BP team’s order and look forward to collaborating with them to help BP Pulse as they develop a dependable, reachable rapid charging network globally.

On the other hand, by purchasing California-based Amply power in 2021 and rebranding it as BP Pulse, BP gained a foothold in the EV charging industry. The new BP Pulse was able to cooperate with Hertz to expand its network of EV charging stations because of the previous company’s fleet and charging management technology.

Deals made by BP with Hertz and Tritium show how fossil fuel firms are becoming more eager to help the expansion of electric vehicles. Large oil firm Shell just acquired the Volta EV charging network. Even if certain states might prevent it, both of these transactions may signal that electric car sales are on the rise for 2023.
