ABB’s high-power charging products delivered an intelligent and cost-effective charging solution for Hamburger Hochbahn AG‘s larger fleet of electric buses, supporting the city of Hamburg’s vision for emission free local transport whilst minimizing downtime.

The solution enables 44 buses in the fleet, each with a range of up to 260 km when fully charged, to be simultaneously re-charged in the central bus depot.

"ABB was able to demonstrate its strong capabilities. We are convinced of the performance and future viability of the products and are currently implementing the first of six carports with compact vehicle installation and charging technology from ABB on the roof. Using a bespoke rooftop design, delivered a space saving of around 30%."
