Australian electric vehicle charging company Tritium has entered a multi-year contract with BP to supply direct current (DC) fast chargers in regions including the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

The contract will kick off with just under 1,000 DC fast chargers as part of BP’s goal of growing its EV charging network to 70,000 units by 2030.

The petroleum giant has expressed their delight in working with the EV charging specialist.

“It will help bp pulse deliver its mission to provide fast, reliable charging for EV drivers and to accelerate the roll-out of the charging infrastructure needed as the world transitions to decarbonise road transport,” said Richard Bartlett, Senior Vice President, bp pulse.

Meanwhile, the EV charging specialist has emphasised the importance of major companies working together to create a more sustainable transport industry.

“The electrification of transportation is entering an incredible era when major companies like bp are providing critical support to transition the world to cleaner more reliable transportation,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter.

“We’re thrilled to be working with bp to create greater global access to fast charging in support of their mission to become a net zero company by 2050 and to be a leader in helping the world get to net zero emissions.”
