Chargefox opens powerful EV charging station
Chargefox, Australia’s only public ultra-rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has further expanded with the opening of the most powerful EV charging station in the southern hemisphere at Westfield Airport West.
Located in the external carpark near the Chemist Warehouse entry, the state-of-the-art ultra- rapid chargers are capable of charging up to 350kW and can charge four cars simultaneously, delivering up to 400km of charge in 15 mins (or 200km of charge in 8 mins), while the two 50kW fast chargers can deliver 60km per 15 minutes.
Marty Andrews, Chargefox CEO, said, “Our aim is to make EV charging as fast and easy as possible for all Australians, and we’re excited to be leading the way in delivering state-of-the-art infrastructure backed by renewable energy, like at this site. We’re transforming Australia from a global laggard to a leader in transport innovation, and part of this is future proofing our technology and infrastructure for many years to come.”
Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio said, “The Victorian Labor Government strongly supports the growth of electric vehicles and we’re very pleased to be supporting the installation of electric vehicle charging points near our highways, such as Airport West.
These points are vital to help people and businesses make longer, cleaner and more environmentally sustainable journeys in their electric vehicles.”
In Melbourne, Chargefox has installed four Australian made ultra-rapid Tritium Veefill PK 350kW chargers, which can deliver up to 400km of charge in 15 mins (or 200km of charge in 8 mins), as well as two 50 kW DC Tritium Veefil-RT fast chargers which can deliver 60 km per 15 minutes.
Chargers are equipped with both CHAdeMO and CCS2 plug types making them suitable for all current and future EVs, including Tesla when used with an adapter, excluding only low range AC-only EVs.
