OK Purchases Over 300 Fast Chargers from Tritium to Expand Public Charging Infrastructure in Denmark

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – Tritium DCFC Limited, a global electric vehicle (EV) fast charger manufacturer, has announced that OK a.m.b.a. (OK), Denmark’s largest fuel retailer, has bought more than 300 fast chargers for use at fuel stations, on highways, in urban areas and retail sites, and with OK’s corporate fleet and fleet customers.

With more than 670 fuel stations in Denmark, OK plans to use the deployment of Tritium fast chargers to support the expansion of Denmark’s public charging infrastructure in both large and small Danish cities. This will provide the fast charging infrastructure required to support the Danish Government’s goal of having at least 775,000 electric or plug-in hybrid cars on the country’s road network by 2030, with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70%.

“In 2022, almost 40% of cars sold in Denmark were electric or plug-in hybrids, solidifying Denmark’s position as a global leader in the transition to sustainable transportation,” said Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO. “A growing network of public fast chargers will add further momentum to Denmark’s EV uptake, and we’re pleased to support OK’s e-mobility goals.”

OK has already received a portion of this purchase order and successfully launched the first of its Tritium 75kW modular chargers at the Super Brugsen store in Hillerød and the Kvickly store in Odder, Denmark. As chargers are installed at Coop stores across Denmark, customers will be able to pay for their charging session using OK’s award-winning app, providing a seamless and convenient customer experience.

“OK is focused on providing a seamless and authentic customer experience and we are thrilled to be partnering with a leading fast charger manufacturer such as Tritium, giving us the prospect of accelerating our plans of expanding our DC network,” said Thor Folmann Krarup, E-mobility Manager, OK a.m.b.a.

With records broken for the sale of battery electric vehicles (BEV) in 2022, Denmark is making positive strides towards phasing out internal combustion engine vehicles. In mid-October, Denmark reached the significant milestone of 100,000 BEVs registered to drive on Danish roads, a ten-fold increase from three years ago.

Tritium is proud to contribute to the rapid growth in charging infrastructure, with the number of publicly accessible fast chargers in Denmark tripling to 784 in 2022. As this trend continues, Tritium and OK will work collaboratively to provide a fast, reliable, and safe charging network to serve all Danish drivers.
