06 Dec GMG Webinar | Iain Curran: CharIN – Towards Greater Interoperability & Standardisation in Charging Systems
Iain Curran, Practice Lead Global – Fleet Decarbonisation, BHP | CharlN is the leading global association dedicated to promoting interoperability based on the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging vehicles of all kinds. Standardization in charging of electric mining trucks will help to reduce costs, avoid duplication in development and increase efficiency as the industry moves to implement battery powered haulage fleets. Building on the success of the Charge On Innovation Challenge, the Mining Taskforce within CharIN is already seeing engagement between key stakeholders including mining companies, mining truck OEMs and technology suppliers. If successful it will streamline and potentially speed up the mining industry’s net zero carbon goals with regard to mine haulage. In this webinar, Iain discusses CharIN and the work underway.
