Averna and FLO Collaborate on Quality Testing for EV Charging Stations

Averna partners with FLO to enhance EV charging infrastructure’s quality and reliability, targeting to facilitate more rapid adoption of electric vehicles and contribute to environmental sustainability.

What’s Happening

Global EV test and quality solutions leader, Averna, has declared a vital partnership with FLO, a prominent North American electric vehicle (EV) charging enterprise and smart charging solutions provider. The collaboration is intended to enhance the development of advanced solutions for EV charging infrastructure across Canada and the United States, utilizing Averna’s testing expertise.

Why It Matters

Daniel Wyatt, Averna’s Vice-President of Sales for Eastern USA and Canada, emphasizes the partnership’s significance, stating, “This is one of the most impactful projects we have worked on.” With the transportation sector contributing 29% of annual emissions in the US and being the second-largest source in Canada, the project is a critical step toward limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100. Wyatt adds that Averna’s involvement in ensuring the efficiency and reliability of FLO’s charging stations would encourage more consumers to shift to electric vehicles.

Key Points

FLO recently unveiled the FLO Ultra™, a DC fast charger designed to revolutionize the EV ownership experience. The FLO Ultra™ features a sturdy aluminum enclosure with two high-powered charging ports that can charge most EVs to 80% in 15 minutes. It achieves this with up to 320 kW of dynamic power sharing and up to 500 kW when multiple EV charging stations are connected. Nathan Yang, Chief Product Officer at FLO, lauds Averna’s testing expertise, stating that it has freed FLO’s team to focus on product development while ensuring 98% uptime for their charging stations.

Bottom Line

The collaboration between Averna and FLO is not just a stride towards enhancing the quality and reliability of EV charging infrastructure, but also an essential push for environmental sustainability. By reducing the barriers to EV adoption, this partnership is poised to make a significant impact on emission reduction targets, driving forward both industry progress and global climate change solutions.
