Tritium opens U.S. EV fast charger manufacturing facility

Tritium DCFC Limited has opened its first U.S.-based EV fast charger manufacturing facility, located in Lebanon, Tennessee. The facility will employ more than 500 Tennesseans over the next five years, the company says.

Tritium’s Tennessee facility will initially produce the company’s RTM fast charger and is expected to start production on the PKM150 early next year. The company says these advanced DC fast chargers are compatible with all EVs and are expected to fulfill requirements for the recently-enacted Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which provides $370 billion for climate change initiatives to help reduce carbon emissions by roughly 40% by 2030.

Next year, Tritium is expected to produce its PKM150 chargers, which launched in December 2021, and are designed to provide customers with flexibility when creating charging sites. Customers can connect up to four PKM150 fast chargers to one power cabinet. The PKM line of chargers is created with swappable modules, which the company says enables technicians to replace modules in minutes. This flexibility gives customers the ability to choose between 100kW or 150kW of dual-cable charging station power depending on their business needs.
