India’s transition toward E-Mobility has gained tremendous momentum owing to an aggressive government push through the FAME-II scheme making the Electric bus market the flag bearer of the transformation of public transportation.
This was done in response to the key challenge of providing clean, economical, and smooth transport. As a pioneer project in India, this obviously had several challenges, including a lack of support systems such as charging infrastructure, installation, operation, and maintenance of charging stations as well as high installation costs, etc.
Delta offered its support by providing a comprehensive charging solution that is inclusive of high-capacity chargers sustained by a software solution. Delta Electronics India, in conjunction with NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Limited (NVVN Limited) and Charge+Zone, focused on developing charging infrastructure, has facilitated Andamans and Nicobar Transport Service by providing a fleet of high-capacity dual CCS DC chargers to charge e-buses supplied by NTPC.
