A bustling port city in northern Germany, Hamburg has set ambitious sustainability goals to cut CO2 emissions by half from 1990 to 2030, in large part through the development of e-mobility initiatives.
In terms of local public transport, Hamburger HOCHBAHN AG is contributing to the Hamburg climate plan with a wide-reaching fleet electrification program that includes Germany’s first fully electrified bus terminal for a system carrying 200 million riders a year. The company is committed to having its entire fleet of 1,000 bus electric by 2030.
ABB, as a global leader in infrastructure for electric vehicle charging, is initially supporting this undertaking by supplying 44 of its high-power 150 kW chargers for the operator’s network. This will allow 44 buses in the fleet, each with a range of up to 150 km in normal conditions, to be simultaneously charged in the central bus depot.
ABB’s high-power charging products deliver an intelligent and cost-effective solution to charge larger fleets of electric buses, ensuring zero emission transportation. For added convenience and space saving, the high-power chargers are installed on the roof of the bus depot.
