Nexans branches out from cables with EV charger

June 12, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
French power cable maker Nexans has launched its first range of high speed chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), competing directly with companies such as ABB.

The AGICITY range is intended to speed up the rollout of public and private charging infrastructure for EVs with dynamic station management and higher energy efficiency.

The company sees a benefit from its cable customers covering the whole value chain from charging to the information and communication technology. Nexans markets tri-standard terminals enabling alternating- and direct-current charging up to 24 kW as well as rapid charging and the AGICITY range offers complete EV charging solutions, including services specifically designed to help companies and local communities transition smoothly to e-mobility. A modular approach makes it easy to define, develop and upgrade any fleet of charging stations in order to help integrate new mobilities in company fleets, public or private parking areas or street charging stations.

“The launch of Nexans AGICITY confirms the Group’s aim to go beyond cables,” said Dirk Steinbrink, newly appointed Chief Technical Officer at Nexans. “Nexans assists its customers at each stage of the implementation and operation of EV charging infrastructure. Our teams provide project support from the definition of needs and design of customized systems, and throughout the infrastructure’s entire life-cycle including manufacturing, installation and sale.”

The supervision systems provide regional authorities and companies with reliable charging operations through real-time remote diagnosis and supervision functions and the charging stations include payment and car sharing options. They are compatible with all vehicles on the market and are interoperable with shared mobility operators.

By 2040, electric vehicles (EVs) could even account for 54% of new car sales providing the charging infrastructure keeps pace with the trend and as a developer and manufacturer, the Group has been expanding its know-how in the electric mobility sector since 2010 through projects such as BienVEnu and Eco2Charge. 

It also has a Qualifelec-approved center in France for training EV charging station installers.

The company works in four main areas: Building & Territories (including utilities, smart grids, e­mobility), High Voltage & Projects (covering offshore wind farms, submarine interconnections, land high voltage), Telecom & Data (covering
