    I just found this article on a dutch website: ABB bouwt s werelds grootste snellaadnetwerk in Nederland - Groen7

    The link to the official press announcement: ABB to build world’s largest nationwide network of EV fast-charging stations in the Netherlands


    The chargers they will be using will be a ABB Terra 53 which supports CHAdeMO, CCS (Combo plug) and 3-phase 43kW AC.

    Yes, 120kW SuperChargers from Tesla are more awesome, but I'm very happy with 50kW charging as well!

    A map of all the planned locations:

    Was emailed the announcement by ABB this morning. This is very cool - and exactly what other countries need to be rolling out.

    Very nice!
    This changes everything.. If it is allowed, I'd rather have an adapter from CCS to Tesla then CHAdeMO to Tesla.
    Signalling should be compatible, as both use a Pilot signal, instead of the CAN bus the CHAdeMO standard uses.

    I really hope this all comes through!

    +1

    I think CCS -> Tesla would be better indeed.

    Looks like the station will be connected to 3x63A AC. If ABB follows the Typ2 standards for DC charging, the simple Typ2 can do up to 70kW DC. If ABB allows DC charging with the Typ2 the Tesla Model S can be charged with 43kW DC or 22kW AC (with twincharger only) over the same socket/plug. Hope if not already done, they will add this feature later.

    best

    Where did you get the 3x63A info from?

    The specsheet of the Terra 53 says this:
    So you could be right, but I'm just wondering where you get that info from.

    First Estonia, now the Netherlands, hopefully other countries will also install comprehensive DC fast charging networks. It is great to see that both connection standards will be supported as well. Model S owners should be able to use an inexpensive plug adaptor for the thpe 2 combo plug, instead of needing a CHAdeMo protocol converter. The US Pacific Northwest has pretty good coverage, but I do hope this comes to the US Midwest area soon.

    Here is another article from the US electrical engineering society:

    PS. I am also glad to see 43kW AC supported as well, and congratulate the people of the Netherlands for having the vision to implement this network.

    So the 3rd plug is called: "3-phase 43kW AC"??

    It is the standard Type 2 "Mennekes" plug that fits in the Model S.

    I like that they plan to put chargers right on the Afsluitdijk.

    Well, it's a long stretch of road, so why not?

    They are planning to install these chargers at every government owned resting area / parking, that's 201 in total.

    Glad to hear the gas stations lost. Surprising that they even tried with such a ridiculous claim.

    Thanks for posting this widodh.
