As part of a long-term agreement, electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure supplier ABB will play a key role in helping Copenhagen Airport to achieve carbon neutrality in its own operations by 2030.

The next 10 years will see ABB provide energy group EWII with 1,350 EV chargers for installation for Copenhagen Airport making it Denmark’s largest site for EV charging. The first 180 AC chargers and 15 DC fast chargers will be installed in 2022.

“We are pleased to support Copenhagen Airport in their sustainable transition with our broad portfolio of quality and professional charging solutions,” said Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility.

“We are convinced that it will not only serve as inspiration for other airports in Denmark but also in other countries and that it will again demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of clean, quiet and flexible electric mobility,” he continued.

With Copenhagen looking for a holistic EV charging solution for its more than 80,000 daily travellers and employees parking on site, the solution also needed to serve vehicles in need of faster charging including taxis dropping off travellers and businesses operating inside the airport handling transportation, luggage and catering.

To meet this demand, EWII  teamed up with a number of partners, including ABB to supply the 1,350 charging points.

EWII’s Head of Wholesale, Jesper Nicolaisen, added: “With ABB as our e-mobility partner, we are assured access to a wide range of solutions that can charge everything from cars to buses and trucks. Additionally, it was crucial for us and the airport that the charging stations be both reliable and of the highest quality. As an experienced global partner, which helps to drive innovation in EV charging infrastructure, ABB performs on all parameters.”
