Exicom, India’s largest power solutions company with operations in telecom, mobility, and stationary energy, said that it has finished 5,000 charging installations across 200 cities, including AC and DC chargers.
By building a 200KW charger for Tata Power at a DTC facility in Delhi, the 5000th charger was accomplished.
After EESL won India’s first EV charging tender among more than ten players in Q2 2018 in Delhi, the accomplishment was realised in just four years from its first installation.
The 5,000 installations are distributed in 200 cities across 20 states, with the bulk of them at bus terminals, fleet owners, public charging points, residential communities, and families. There are around 3600 AC chargers and 1400 DC chargers among these EV chargers.
The company is an EV charging ecosystem facilitator with smart solutions around products, software, and hardware spanning the home, enterprise, and public charging segments, and also has over 20 years of experience in designing, producing, and manufacturing technology products.
Its chargers are used to charge all kinds of 4W EVs and commercial vehicles (EV buses) in India, including those made by MG Motors, JBM, Tata Motors, and Audi, among others.
Anant Nahata, MD & CEO, Exicom Group, remarked on the achievement, saying they are incredibly happy to reach the first of their many goals in such a short period of time.
The installation of 5000 EV chargers all across the country is simply a first step toward realising the larger ambition of supporting India’s EV charging network with solutions that are future-proof, dependable, and perform at an industry-leading level.
He added that they are dedicated to investing in research and development to encourage innovation and retain their technological leadership, as well as providing charging choices to all sorts of drivers, including those in low-income areas.
Exicom presently manufactures its chargers at a state-of-the-art plant in Gurgaon, Haryana, and plans to open a new greenfield manufacturing site in 2022–23 to triple its manufacturing capacity and serve the fast-growing Indian market, as well as export prospects.
Exicom has already started selling electric vehicle chargers in Southeast Asia. It supplied DC rapid charging equipment for Sarawak’s first multi-fuel filling station, which offers gasoline, hydrogen, and electricity refilling. In FY23, the company aims to ship over 20,000 electric vehicle chargers to its clients.
