Inauguration of the Charging Station

Navratna enterprise NBCC (India) Ltd signed a memorandum of understanding with leading Finnish clean energy company Fortum Oyj for developing charging infrastructure in all upcoming NBCC construction projects across the country.
 
The MoU was signed in the first week of October by Mr Arto Räty, Sr. V-P of Corporate Affairs & Communications of Fortum and Mr Yogesh Sharma, Executive Director, NBCC. The MoU will cover all major activities in value chain from planning and designing to making investment and operating the infrastructure using cloud based system.
 
As a first step, Fortum has installed one 22 KW AC Charger on pilot basis in New Moti Bagh Colony maintained by NBCC. It will be operated using Fortum’s cloud-based system. The charging station was inaugurated by Finland’s Minister for Housing, Energy and the Environment, Mr Kimmo Tiilikainen in the presence of Mr Durga Shankar Mishra, Secretary in the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, and Dr Anoop Kumar Mittal, Chairman-cum- MD, NBCC.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Tiilikainen said, “India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. While the rapid growth puts strain on the environment, it also opens extensive opportunities. Technological expertise of Finnish companies can be leveraged to support the sustainable development of Indian economy and energy sector. We are really happy to see Finnish companies bringing in their best technology and solutions to India.”
 
Mr Arto Raty said, “India is an important market for us. Fortum is a pioneer in providing charging solutions to EVs. Solutions with reliable hardware and software as well as responsive customer support are crucial to the end user experience. We have developed Fortum Charge & Drive to meet these demands, paving the way for the more widespread and efficient use of electric vehicles.” 
 
According to Mr Sanjay Aggarwal, MD, Fortum India, currently, India has about 6,000 electric cars operational and keeping in mind, the Government’s target to have only e-vehicles by 2030, Fortum has ventured in India making it the first country outside Europe in the Charge & Drive space. The plans, he said, included developing charging infrastructure along with the cloud based system (SAAS). “Starting with this pilot in New Delhi, we plan to roll out more than 150 charging stations over a period of next 12-18 months,” he concluded.
 
The charger installed is equipped with OCPP 1.5 and GPRS communication system. It is of IP54 Class making it suitable to be operated outdoor. It has two charging points which will enable two cars to be charged at one point. The Charger will operate on AC mode. The charging station can be operated using RFID or Mobile App using Fortum cloud system. It also has the ability to be operated remotely.
