Exicom Completes Installation Of 5,000 EV Chargers
On Wednesday, power solutions provider Exicom announced that it has completed the installation of 5,000 electric vehicle chargers in India within four years of winning the nation’s first EV charging tender by Energy Efficiency Services Limited.
These installations include 3,600 AC and 1,400 DC chargers across 200 cities in 20 States. The majority of these are deployed at bus depots, fleet operators, public charging stations, residential communities, and households.
The 5,000th milestone was achieved by installing a 200kW charger for Tata Power at a DTC depot in Delhi.
“Deployment of 5,000 EV chargers across the country is just a stepping stone towards achieving the bigger vision of supporting charging network for EVs in India with products that are future proof, reliable, and industry-leading in terms of performance. We are committed to investing in R&D to support innovation, maintain our technology leadership, and provide charging options to all types of drivers, including those in low-income communities,” said Anant Nahata, managing director and chief executive officer, Exicom Group.
Exicom chargers are being used to charge all types of four-wheeler EVs and electric buses, manufactured by Indian and global OEMs such as MG Motors, JBM, Tata Motors, and Audi, said the company.
Exicom currently manufactures chargers at its state-of-the-art facility in Gurgaon, Haryana. It plans to set up a new greenfield manufacturing facility in 2022-23 to increase its manufacturing capacity three times to serve the fast-growing Indian market and export.
The company expects to ship more than 20,000 EV chargers to its customers in FY2022-23.
