Norway’s fuel retailing Circle K has signed a contract with ABB for the supply of Terra High Power, 175 kW EV chargers in combination with Terra 54 CJG, 50 kW EV-chargers.

“Circle K has energy stations all over the country, and by investing in fast chargers from ABB, they help to lower the threshold for choosing an electric vehicle,” says Frank Muehlon, who is leading ABB’s global business for E-Mobility Infrastructure.

ABB is a global leader in charging infrastructure with an installed base of close to 1000 EV charging stations in Norway, and products for all charging standards.
