Exicom To Install 125 EV Chargers For EESL

Out of the lot, 100 will be AC battery charging stations with a capacity of 3.3 kilowatt, the remainder will be DC quick battery chargers with a rating of 15 kilowatt


EV Charging Station

When state-run body EESL (Energy Efficiency Service Ltd) conducted a bidding round back in October 2017 for procuring 10,000 EVs (electric vehicles), the company also announced that it would float a similar tender to attract power solution providers for setting up the required charging infrastructure for the vehicles. The bid for the first phase of the project was won by Exicom Tele-Systems.

The company will now be required to set up 100 AC battery charging stations with a capacity of 3.3kW along with 25 DC charging stations with a power rating of 15kW. While the AC chargers can be called standard charging stations, the DC charger’s bigger juicing capacity gives it the tag of being a ‘quick charger’.

All 125 charging stations will be compliant with Bharat AC and DC specifications released by the Department of Heavy Industries (DHI). The EV chargers will allow consumers to pay via several options such as debit and credit cards, BHIM (Bharat Interface of Money) as well as UPI (Unified Payment Interface).

Upon bagging the deal, Anant Nahata, MD of Exicom, reportedly said, “Our solutions are capable of delivering the performance needed for anxiety-free transport at the lowest cost while also helping to solve many problems like reducing pollution and oil import.”
