[BROOKLYN, NY, February 3, 2020] – Electric transportation company Revel announced today that it is building a DC fast charging Superhub for electric vehicles (EVs) at the historic former Pfizer building in Brooklyn. The site will be the largest universal fast charging depot in North America, with 30 chargers open to the public on a 24/7 basis and accessible to owners of any electric vehicle brand. This will be the first of a network of fast charging Superhubs opened by Revel across New York City to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and meet New Yorkers’ need for EV fast chargers.

Revel’s expansion into charging marks its first new product line since launching a shared fleet of electric mopeds in 2018. The company started with a small pilot program in three Brooklyn neighborhoods before expanding its New York City service to Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx, growing its service area and fleet size to meet New Yorkers’ needs for affordable, socially-distant modes of transportation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Revel is planning to expand its product offerings further in the coming months as part of its mission to electrify cities like New York.

“Revel is building the infrastructure of the future and we’re building it now – our planet can’t wait,” said Frank Reig, Revel CEO and Co-Founder. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring fast charging to our home borough of Brooklyn and get to work on the first of many Superhubs to come in 2021.”

The former Pfizer building, which once housed the company’s drug manufacturing operations and was its first headquarters, is a natural fit for Revel’s first chargers. In recent years, the site has been transformed by its owners at Acumen Capital Partners into an ecosystem of small businesses and startups building the economy of tomorrow.

“Welcoming Revel as a tenant is a slam dunk for us,” said Jeff Rosenblum, Co-Founder of Acumen Capital Partners. “Our mission with the Pfizer building has been to transform a historic site into a home for forward-thinking companies, and electrification truly is the future. We’re excited to give this space new life once again by hosting Revel’s first fast chargers.”

Revel chose Tritium’s recently launched RTM75 model for the first ten chargers at its Brooklyn site, which will go live this spring. These chargers can provide EV drivers with 100 additional miles in about 20 minutes. Revel plans to install upcoming Tritium fast charger models at the Superhub in the coming months, further increasing charging capacity and speed.  

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Revel to install our first RTM75 chargers in the Americas,” said Mike Calise, Tritium’s President of the Americas. “Critical projects like this bring the convenience of DC fast charging to vibrant city neighborhoods, like Brooklyn, the most populous borough in New York City. The e-mobility revolution is here, and this charging depot is a necessary step towards giving New Yorkers the confidence to make the switch to electric, while reducing emissions and improving air quality across the city.”

Tritium Opens State-of-the-Art Research and Development Headquarters

Brisbane, Australia, April 30 2019 – Tritium, a world leader in electric vehicle (EV) DC fast charging technology, has opened its state-of-the-art research and development (R&D) centre, the largest of its kind in the world and the global centre for Tritium’s facilities in Europe and North America.

The Tritium E-Mobility Innovation Centre in Brisbane, Australia, is part of a major expansion of Tritium’s headquarters. The shift to the new facilities will help increase production rates and allow for much faster time-to-market, while further enabling the rapid development of technologies which will continue to shape the EV roadmap worldwide.

James Kennedy, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder, Tritium, said the recent expansion of the company’s engineering and research capabilities made the construction of the Innovation Centre a necessity.  “By the end of 2018, we were adding an engineer to the team every week, on average,” said Kennedy. “In engineering circles, this growth rate is unheard of. But as Tritium continues to expand, this rate of growth is absolutely necessary to cater to demand for DC fast charging and high-power charging.”

The new headquarters is home to expanded R&D and engineering, support, sales and marketing teams. Tritium now employs more than 300 people globally, with the R&D and engineering teams the same size as their executive, sales and marketing teams combined, ensuring innovation remains at the forefront of the company’s ethos.   The new facility and laboratory will allow for the development of new and disruptive technologies which will continue to set the pace of innovation in the EV charging infrastructure sector.

In 2014, the company unveiled the Veefil-RT 50kW DC Fast Charger, the most advanced charger in its class and one which changed the design paradigm for charging infrastructure across the globe – and which has now been installed in 29 countries and counting.

In the past 12 months, the company unveiled the most powerful DC charger in the world, its flagship Veefil-PK 350kW DC High Power Charger. The chargers are being ROLLED OUT ACROSS EUROPE AS PART OF THE IONITY NETWORK and can add 350 kilometres or 220 miles of range to an EV in just 10 minutes. The chargers are known to be the most powerful in the world, but Tritium has already begun working on technology which will push the Veefil-PK and EV charging even further ahead.

Thanks to a grant of a portion of the US$3.2 million awarded to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) by the Department of Energy in the United States, Tritium will use the R&D facility to DEVELOP AN EXTREME FAST CHARGING SYSTEM THAT CAN CONNECT DIRECTLY TO THE GRID. EPRI allocated about US$400,000 for Tritium to develop a custom version of its Veefil-PK high-powered charging head, along with providing input for system design and testing.

“This is one of several research projects we have on the agenda,” said Kennedy. “We’re also working on technology which will enable our concept of Energy Freedom™ to become a reality in the very near future. By pushing the boundaries of innovation in infrastructure, we’ll continue to re-define the possibilities for E-Mobility and pave the road ahead for the EV sector.”

Amsterdam Facility assisting Auto Manufacturers to test interoperability and enable advances in charging and batteries

The company also announced the opening of its Tritium E-Mobility Innovation Centre at its facilities in Amsterdam.

The Centre is located in the heart of Europe’s automotive industry and allows manufacturers to test vehicles for DC charger interoperability, particularly with Tritium’s Veefil-RT 50kW DC Fast Chargers and Veefil-PK 350kW DC High Power Chargers, at no cost to the manufacturer.

“The European Centre was developed with the needs of the European Automotive industry in mind and it’s now being used by OEMs on a daily basis,” said Kennedy. “Previously, testing had to be carried out at various automotive festivals, or we would have to deliver temporary chargers across borders, in some cases to manufacturers, and seek their return at a later date. The process was cumbersome and hindered innovation.

“With the new Innovation Centre, automotive OEMs now have a base in Europe at which they can work alongside Tritium engineers to solve issues and develop and test all aspects of battery and charger interoperability, including communications and other technical advances inherent in the next wave of EVs.”

Since the opening of the Centre in February, Tritium has tested its chargers for compatibility with five automotive brands, as well as electric truck and bus manufacturers. This will effectively shorten the development and time-to-market for various new electric vehicle models.

“This allows us to test advances in charging technology, such as vehicle-to-charger communications, vehicle-to-grid or bi-directional charging, support services and more,” said Kennedy. “The Centre is uniquely placed in the heart of European automotive innovation to ensure we can work with the industry to accelerate the development of new EVs and the next wave of charging infrastructure needed to power them.”
