West Australian Electric Bus Trial

Electric Vehicle Charging Public Transport

West Australian Electric Bus Trial

Gemtek Group are partnering with ABB and LKS Construction to deliver the charging infrastructure for Australia’s first public transport pilot for Electric Buses.

ABB’s Terra184 180kW high-power EV chargers will provide the bus depot overnight charging for its new Volvo electric busses to operate on this CAT route and are able to charge two buses simultaneously.

The chargers also include cloud connectivity, allowing network operators the option to remotely monitor and diagnose the charging infrastructure 24/7, maximising uptime, increasing efficiency, and ensuring reliable infrastructure for the public.

The chargers also utilise CCS (Combined Charging System) connectivity and OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol) compliance, combining charging cabinet and charging post, reducing the infrastructure footprint necessary to charge multiple buses, making it a valuable addition to compact installations like bus depots where space comes at a premium.
