After this test, we went straight to Tritium - a well-known Australian manufacturer of charging stations of the same brand. Tritium expressed interest in working with us first in the service area for selected countries. In practice, after setting up access to their portal, we automatically receive orders for individual charging station repairs (replacements), especially in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
Greenbuddies Charging cooperation with IONITY and TRITIUM
Our joint cooperation with IONITY (charging station manager for Tritium) began in April 2021, where we participated in the repair of the IONITY charging station at the SHELL - Nupaky petrol station, which was the first in the Czech Republic to be equipped with an ultra-fast charging station.
Tritium has also given us access to their training portals, where we have improved the servicing of existing charging stations, but also get information about upcoming new products. This intensive business relationship has been going on for more than a year with the support of IONITY - the operator of a pan-European network of superfast chargers located along major motorway routes. In practice, this typically involves the replacement of components during servicing or the complete replacement of a charging station and its testing. The work is varied and each time quite specific.
Once the service intervention or replacement is completed, we enter all the documents into the TRITIUM portal, where the customer checks and then approves the financial statement.
At the end of last year, TRITIUM achieved significant business success. It has become the preferred supplier of fast charging stations for the SHELL Group's network of service stations. It is estimated that up to 500,000 charging stations will be built by the end of 2025, followed by 2.5 million AC type2 charging stations over the next five years. In addition to Europe, this brand new charging infrastructure will also be deployed in South Africa, Asia, North America and the Middle East.
Tritium has so far built a total of 6,700 fast charging stations in 41 countries.
Here is just a small overview of how time has gone at TRITIUM :
Introducing the RT50
The world's smallest DC fast charger for electric vehicles. This charger was also the first in the world to be IP65 rated, and the first in the world to have fully customizable signage.

Entry into Europe
Opening an office in Amsterdam, in order to provide effective support to existing and future customers on the old continent.
Partnership with Ionity
The joint venture between Daimler, Ford, BMW Group and Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG unveiled a next-generation charger designed, industrialized and manufactured by Tritium.
First to plug in and charge
Tritium has become the first company in the world to introduce Plug and Charge technology (ISO 15118), which enables EVs and charging devices to communicate, authenticate and seamlessly transact via a charging cable.
Launch of a 150kW DC fast charger providing a modular and scalable direct current (DC) fast charging system designed for more cost-effective operation and infrastructure expansion to further the development of electric mobility.
Greenbuddies Charging is a proud installation and service partner of Tritio. We have passed a set of stringent criteria emphasizing superior quality, speed of implementation and efficient deployment of service teams. Going forward, we are confident that the scope and geographic reach of our collaboration with this major manufacturer of electric vehicle chargers will continue to grow. We are ready to do our best to achieve this goal.
