Hitachi ABB Power Grids has won a contract to supply Västerås, one of Sweden’s largest cities, with smart-charging tech to electrify more of its buses.

Sweden is aiming to reduce transportation emissions by 70% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2045.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ technology will allow transportation company Svealandstrafiken to monitor fleet charging digitally and expand the number of buses it can charge within the city.

Niklas Persson, Managing Director of Hitachi ABB Power Grids, said: “Sweden has an ambitious programme to remove greenhouse gas emissions from its roads and make the air cleaner and healthier for its citizens.

“We are proud to be delivering our smart fleet charging infrastructure solution to help one of the country’s biggest cities achieve its sustainability targets.”
