Siemens delivers complete EV infrastructure packages
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Siemens is delivering electric vehicle (EV) rapid charging networks across the UK, including networks consisting of almost forty QC45 multi-standard EV chargers to be supplied and installed in South Tyneside and Dorset early in 2015. The networks will be connected to Charge-Your-Car Back Office , and include three years maintenance support provided by Siemens.
Funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), the network in South Tyneside will consist of twenty QC45 triple-outlet, rapid chargers.
In Poole and throughout Dorset, Siemens’ local field services team will be responsible for project management, installation and commissioning of 19 QC45 rapid chargers and the project will be the first rapid charging network installed and operating with fully integrated bay sensors providing real-time detection of both the availability of bays and information for parking enforcement teams of any non-charging vehicles.
In 2015, two rapid charging points will be installed by Siemens in Cirencester and Moreton-in-Marsh for Cotswold District Council, providing fast top-ups for visitors and residents with electric vehicles moving from the north to the south of the region.
New rapid charging projects in Scotland include five new multi-standard chargers installed and commissioned for Scottish Borders Council and a further two new chargers in Stirling. The Scottish Government is delivering a network of public charging points for electric vehicles across Scotland. The scheme, which includes Transport Scotland grants through the Energy Saving Trust, will deliver charging points within every 50 miles on trunk roads and an integrated network will join electric vehicles with public transport.
The company’s largest EV project to date is also well underway in Bristol and Gloucestershire. The complete EV charging solution includes 15 multi-standard triple-outlet rapid chargers with connection to the Pay As You Go national network provided by Charge Your Car. Project management, site design, civil and electrical works, installation and commissioning, and three years maintenance managed by the company’s field services team is also included.
