THE SLOVAK arm of the power and automation company ABB opened a new technology gallery and an electric car charger in Bratislava on September 17. Part of the technology gallery consists of a robotics centre, which moved to its new premises from Trnava a year ago.

In addition to displaying top automation technologies, e-mobility is gaining momentum in the technology gallery. To further promote electric cars, the company put its new fast-charging station Terra into operation in front of the building. All drivers with electric cars equipped with a Combo charging system can use it free of charge. It can charge a battery in 15 minutes.

Mario Pastierovič from ABB explained that the charger is already ABB’s second charger in Bratislava. The first one was supplied within the VIBRATe - VIenna BRATislava e-mobility two-year pilot cross-border project, focused on the development of electro-mobility and a green highway between the two capitals, Bratislava and Vienna.

The Technology Gallery was also established with a focus on e-mobility, which arose in line with e-mobility concept challenges in Slovakia as well as the ABB group’s global strategy for years the 2015-2020, which was officially introduced earlier in September by ABB’s top representatives in London.

The strategy’s key factors include ongoing efforts to increase industrial effectiveness and productivity, which it calls “industry 4.0”, as well as rapid urbanisation and a need for effective public transport. These efforts also led to a new generation of power grids with decentralised storage and points of supply which require specialised solutions for energy storage.
