Brisbane, Australia, January 19, 2021 – Tritium, a global leader in DC fast charging technology for electric vehicles (EVs), had its first RTM75 installed at Broadbeach along the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
This milestone installation and COVID Works for Queensland project was made possible through joint efforts from the City of Gold Coast and the Queensland government. In the coming weeks, a total of 10 Tritium 75kW chargers will be installed within a 50km radius, providing EV drivers with the newest and most advanced fast charging technology in Broadbeach, Coolangatta, Southport, Pimpama, Bundall and Nerang. The power provided to these EV chargers will be offset by the City’s Virtual Power Plant, which generates solar power from over 47 city buildings.
“We listened to customers across the globe, and the RTM75 is the result of those conversations,” said Jane Hunter, CEO, Tritium. “These chargers, assembled in Tritium’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Brisbane, can be installed quickly, are upgradeable and have the narrowest profile on the market, making them suitable to be installed anywhere, from retail carparks to dense urban environments.”
Tritium’s RTM75 allows drivers to add 75 km (46 mi) of range to an EV in as little as 10 minutes. This slim charger is built with urban, retail, fleet and public environments in mind, and is capable of simultaneously charging two vehicles at once. Additionally, the RTM75 supports all charging standards on the market, including CCS and CHAdeMO, and satisfies the needs of all batteries up to 920V.
“The RTM75 is the first product on Tritium’s new Modular Scalable Charging (MSC) hardware platform which provides the next level of flexibility, capital efficiency and scalability, while maintaining the attractive, compact and low maintenance design attributes Tritium products have become known for,” said Dr David Finn, Chief Growth Officer and Founder, Tritium. “The electrification of transportation is at tipping point, so our customers want to know how they can easily extend their charging site capacity over the coming years. They want no regrets and capital efficient scaling of their charging sites. Tritium’s MSC hardware platform allows our customers to scale their charging sites for half the price and configure their charging sites for a desired reliability.”
The RTM75 is equipped with Plug and Charge (ISO 15118) technology, eliminating the need for credit card payments or RFID authentication at the charger, creating a more convenient and reliable experience for EV drivers. This DC fast charger, with its IP65 sealed enclosure and liquid cooled technology, protects electronics from dust, water, salt and other contaminants, and thrives in any environment from -35°C to +50°C (-31°F to +122°F).
Founded in 2001 by e-mobility pioneers, Tritium designs and manufactures proprietary technology to create the world’s most advanced and reliable DC fast chargers for electric vehicles.
Compact, robust designs to look great on the main street or thrive in the world’s harshest conditions, Tritium technology is easy to install, easy to own and easy to use. And we never stop innovating to support our customers around the world.
