Siemens has signed its first Australian distribution agreement for its electric vehicle (EV) charging portfolio, partnering with Yurika to service Australia’s growing EV market.

Strengthening the existing relationship between the two companies, the agreement will see Yurika distribute the largest stock and the most diverse range of EV charging equipment in Australia.

The agreement will enable Yurika, a market leader in distributed energy and electrical infrastructure solutions, to provide end-to-end EV charging consultation, design, installation and service agreements, making them one of the only true turnkey solution providers capable of managing EV charging projects from the grid to the vehicle.

Yurika will distribute the complete range of Siemens’ EV charging equipment used by bus operators, fleet managers, charge point operators and electrical contractors. The initial order will include Versicharge 7kw – 22kw AC, Sicharge CC 22kW AC commercial, Sicharge D 160kW to 300kW DC fast charging and Sicharge UC 100kW – 800kW industrial DC from the portfolio and will reduce lead times for customers.

Chairman and CEO of Siemens Australia Pacific, Jeff Connolly, said, “As we reach our 150 years milestone serving the Australia Pacific region, Siemens is proud to grow alongside our customers in the fast paced eMobility market through the ingenuity of our technology.

“We are pleased to strengthen and build on our successful, long-standing relationship with Energy Queensland through this strong partnership with Yurika to develop local capability into the growing EV infrastructure market.

“With Australia embracing a net-zero emissions target by 2050, we must also quickly adopt technologies such as e-charging infrastructure that play an important role in the ongoing decarbonisation of transport fleets.

“Our role as a global technology leader is to bring the best-in-class technology to the local market so we can help transform the everyday. By partnering with Yurika, Siemens gains an excellent delivery partner for e-charging projects of all size in Australia.”

Executive General Manager at Yurika, Carly Irving, highlighted the importance of having access to flexible and scalable global technology locally.

“With electric vehicle fleets continuing to expand, local support is critical to accelerate project deliveries,” Ms Irving said.

“Siemens’ eMobility charging portfolio is proven in many parts of the world and is a natural fit for Australia’s growing EV market. Our large stock holding will ensure customers can access the equipment and services they need, when they need it.”

Yurika will also build a demonstration trailer to highlight to the market the load management capability of Siemens’ Versicharge AC range, capable of producing up to 22kW.

Olivia Laskowski, Business Development Manager for Siemens’ eMobility portfolio in the region welcomed the partnership.

“It’s great to see our eMobility portfolio that includes e-charging infrastructure and digital solutions, expanding in the region,” Ms Laskowski said.

“Our recent successes with customers in New Zealand and Australia and now the partnership with Yurika reiterates the strength and versatility of our products. We look forward to continued success in Australia with Yurika by our side.”

Yurika will distribute the full Siemens e-charging portfolio, including:

  • Versicharge AC Smart Wallbox (7.2kW-22kW): a fully featured, space efficient wallbox inclusive of smart connectivity and load management options as standard.
  • Sicharge CC AC22 dual-port pedestal (22kW): an attractive and robust charger with unique branding options.
  • Sicharge D high power DC charger (160kW-300kW): an innovative DC charger enabling modular power upgrades, dynamic power allocation and up to five (5) vehicles charged in parallel.
  • Sicharge UC industrial charger (125kW-800kW): a flexible and robust charging solution for eBus and eTruck depot charging.
