The first ABB fast charger for electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. is now installed and operational in New Berlin, Wis. It was completed earlier this month at ABB Inc.'s office and manufacturing facility.

Called the Terra 51 DC fast charger, the unit reduces EV charging times from eight hours to as little as 15 to 30 minutes for CHAdeMO-compatible battery vehicles, according to the company.

ABB adds that its chargers can be connected to any charging network or community via the Open Charge Point Protocol, a widely adopted international open networking standard for charging equipment.

“This station is just the first step in what we hope is an area-wide charging infrastructure network,” says Stefan Friedli, ABB’s U.S. general manager of power electronics and MV drives.
