Four ABB multi-standard fast chargers installed at IKEA Oslo

IKEA recently announced a very progressive new plan to install DC fast chargers at all its stores in Norway.

As an example leading the way for the project, four multi-standard fast chargers were supplied by ABB at IKEA's Oslo superstore.

The chargers themselves are operated under the Fortum Charge & Drive network.

Today there are about 650 DC fast chargers in Norway and general plan for near term is to add 350 more.

With 1,000 chargers Norway could achieve a 100:1 DC fast charging ratio as the total BEV counter rapidly approaches 100,000.
