Siemens has completed the supply and installation of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in 12 London Underground (LU) car parks across the capital for UK Power Network Services. The new network of 60 Siemens AC intelligent charge posts is fully integrated into Source London, the UK's largest electric vehicle membership scheme with over 1300 charge points.
The charge points are supported by associated services including management, operation and maintenance and the supply of charging post management software to operate the back offices.
Siemens charging solutions are designed, built and installed for long term field deployment and high level of usage making them sustainable long-term technology choices. Each charging point can charge two vehicles simultaneously, reducing installation and maintenance costs, and maximising space. It can be easily tailored to charging requirements, and offers key advantages with its high safety standards and modular design. It allows the integration of calibrated meters for the exact billing of charged energy and/or feed-in meters for the exact offsetting of energy input with electricity providers.
Mark Bonnor-Moris, Head of Electromobility, UK Siemens said: ‘This significant EV infrastructure project provides UK Power Network Services, Source London and LU with credible and experienced supply, delivery, management and operation. ‘This major project further demonstrates transition from low-power (‘trickle’) on-street electric vehicle charging to high-power and rapid industry-grade facilities, increasing investment and the utilisation of electric vehicles’.
Siemens is now one of the major suppliers in the growing UK Electric Vehicle Infrastructure market. The company’s success has been built on operating Source London, Europe’s largest EV membership scheme with over 1100 charge points, and providing high-end charging equipment and services to leading utility companies and local authorities.
In Corby, a new network of Siemens EV charging points for electric vehicles has recently been installed by Siemens as part of an agreement with Electric Corby with the support of Corby Borough Council. Seventeen 3-phase AC chargers and one DC rapid charger are currently installed at fourteen different sites including a fourteenth century public house in Rockingham, parking bays and associated services at Rockingham racetrack and a 50kW rapid charger in a central location in the town of Corby.
