BRISBANE, Australia, August 26, 2021 – Tritium, a global developer and manufacturer of direct current (“DC”) fast chargers for electric vehicles (“EVs”), today announced a strategic partnership with Solcon Industries, a dynamic power electronics company with more than 40 years of experience developing and manufacturing industrial electronic systems. With the partnership, Solcon Industries becomes an official channel partner and service provider of Tritium’s range of fast charging technology to help meet the growing demand for EV charging infrastructure in Israel and Palestine.
“The world is transitioning to electric transportation, yet drivers in Israel and Palestinian haven’t had adequate access to efficient, fast electric vehicle charging,” said Solcon Industries Vice President of Sales Izzi Eicher. “The people of this region want to drive electric vehicles, and we’re thrilled to be working with Tritium to make that a reality. With their advanced fast charging technology, we believe we’ll be providing drivers with the confidence that they can recharge quickly, efficiently and reliably every time they see a Tritium charger.”
The partnership comes on the heels of a July 24 Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement of the country’s plans to reach zero carbon emissions by 2050, calling for a 96% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in transportation and an 85% reduction in the electricity sector.
“We’re very pleased to be working with Solcon to supply fast public charging infrastructure to drivers in Israel and Palestine,” said Ravi Vaidya, Tritium Vice President of Sales for APAC & Middle East. “As governments increase their commitments to fighting climate change and reducing carbon emissions, it’s critical that drivers have the confidence to adopt electric transportation. Tritium is proud to support the global transition to e-mobility through reliable, innovative technology that gets drivers back on the road in minutes, not hours.”
As the only liquid cooled, IP65-rated fast charging technology provider, Tritium designs its products in Australia to thrive in a variety of challenging environmental conditions, from extreme heat to sub-zero temperatures. This unique approach allows the company’s products to be better protected against dust and moisture and to perform reliably with the smallest footprint.
Founded in 2001, Tritium designs and manufactures proprietary hardware and software to create advanced and reliable DC fast chargers for electric vehicles. Tritium’s compact and robust chargers are designed to look great on Main Street and thrive in harsh conditions, through technology engineered to be easy to install, own, and use. Tritium is focused on continuous innovation in support of our customers around the world.
As announced on May 26, 2021, Tritium has entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination with Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation II (NASDAQ: DCRN, DCRNW), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), that would result in Tritium becoming a publicly listed company. Completion of the proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2021.
