Siemens and YHI Energy partner in New Zealand to support growing electric charging market
Siemens has partnered with YHI Energy in New Zealand to launch its latest electric vehicle charging infrastructure portfolio. The partnership will see YHI Energy, one of New Zealand’s leading suppliers of energy products especially in electric vehicle charging infrastructure, distribute Siemens’ state-of-the-art charging infrastructure portfolio in the New Zealand market.
This agreement complements Siemens’ partnership with Cuthbert Stewart Limited (CSL) who distribute Siemens factory automation, process industry, electrical and drives products in New Zealand. The announcement also follows recent customer wins such as the agreement to supply eBus charging infrastructure to Go Bus, one of New Zealand’s largest bus operators.
Siemens New Zealand CEO Paul Ravlich welcomes the partnership saying that, “Electrification of our transportation fleet plays a significant role in the decarbonisation of New Zealand. To achieve this, we need the right infrastructure in place so the access to the best-in-class technology is more accessible.
We believe in bringing the latest and best in technology from around the world to our customers and this partnership with Siemens helps us do just that.Chris Talbot – Managing Director for YHI Energy
“Siemens’ electric vehicle charging infrastructure is world-renowned and gaining significant traction here in New Zealand. However, to keep up with the demand and to also explore new avenues, we need a local partner with deep market knowledge and a reputation for being the best in the business. YHI Energy isn’t just a distributor but also a like-minded company that is passionate about the opportunity of playing a role in reducing New Zealand’s carbon footprint. We are excited about this partnership and look forward to working closely with YHI Energy.”
YHI Energy will distribute three key products from Siemens’ portfolio:
- Versicharge AC Smart Wallbox (7.2kW-22kW): a fully featured, space efficient wallbox inclusive of smart connectivity and load management options as standard.
- Sicharge CC AC22 dual-port pedestal (22kW): an attractive and robust charger with unique branding options.
- Sicharge D high power DC charger (160kW-300kW): an innovative DC charger enabling modular power upgrades, dynamic power allocation and up to five (5) vehicles charged in parallel.
Together with Siemens Sicharge UC industrial charger (125kW-800kW) for eBuses and eTrucks, Siemens electric charging infrastructure range provides a holistic, state-of-the-art portfolio for residential, commercial, industrial and public applications.
Chris Talbot, Managing Director for YHI Energy said, “Our journey into electric vehicle charging stemmed from customer demand and has since grown due to increasing demand. Over the last five years, we’ve worked with some of New Zealand’s largest electric fleets and public charging projects. We believe in bringing the latest and best in technology from around the world to our customers and this partnership with Siemens helps us do just that. We’re looking forward to working closely with Siemens to deliver to our customers and help New Zealand’s decarbonisation journey.”
