ABB is partnering with PACCAR, a world leader in the design and production of high-quality premium trucks and related services, to offer PACCAR dealers and their customers advanced charging solutions for deployments of new electric vehicles for fleets in the midst of energy transformation, in North America and Europe. In France, in 2019, medium and heavy trucks are responsible for approximately 22% of greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector.
” This collaboration between ABB, a world leader in fleet electrification, and PACCAR, one of the largest manufacturers of medium and heavy-duty trucks, constitutes a strategic and lasting partnership that will accelerate the adoption and extension of an electric fleet while reducing carbon emissions and noise pollution in the transport sectorsaid Frank Muehlon, president of ABB’s E-mobility division. Like PACCAR, ABB sees electrification in the trucking industry as a tremendous opportunity and is committed to delivering safe, smart and sustainable electrification solutions for fleet charging.. »
These solutions are intended for innovative electric vehicles equipped with sufficiently powerful batteries such as Peterbilt, Kenworth, DAF CF Electric and LF Electric trucks, which require a fast charging system adapted to the short downtimes observed on their journeys. ABB’s systems optimize the charging of fleets through fast high-power or overnight sessions of longer duration with a load management system for long-haul transport and last-mile delivery activities.
” We are delighted to partner with ABB to bring this great global charging solution to our customers and dealers.said John Rich, chief technology officer at PACCAR. Customers will benefit not only from the class-leading operational efficiency and environmental performance of zero-emission Peterbilt, Kenworth and DAF trucks, but also from ABB’s market-leading EV charging technology. »
Both companies are committed to serving their customers and conducting their own businesses in a sustainable manner. All PACCAR production sites are certified to ISO 14001, and 80% are zero waste to landfill, while ABB aims to achieve circularity and carbon neutrality in its operations by electrifying its vehicle fleet , by sourcing 100% renewable electricity and improving the energy efficiency of all of its sites by 2030.
