Working closely with Nottingham City Council we understand their need for reliable well maintained charging equipment delivered on time to ensure their fleet of electric buses are fully operational. All charging equipment across their four charging depots are regularly maintained and tested and we hold a 24/7 1 hour service level agreement for equipment failure across their sites. In Summer 2017 we were awarded the contract to install an additional 50 kw DC rapid charger in Nottingham City centre. Works involved a new point of connection from network operator Western Power Distribution, traffic management, highways permits and civil works by Trust Utility services, liaison with energy provider Robin Hood Energy, Nottingham city Council, Intu the land owners, electrical and installation works by EV Charging solutions. Works were carried out whilst bus lanes were operational meaning all works had to be scheduled and carried out on strict timelines. As works were carried out on public and highways areas strict health and safety policies had to be followed by all contractors.
All works were completed in 3 days and following connection of energy supply by Robin Hood energy the unit was commissioned by manufacture Evolt ready for use by the client.
