Evolt joins Scottish Framework for EV charge point installation
Published: 11 July, 2016
Electric vehicle (EV) charge point supplier Evolt has been selected by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) as one of the companies to provide EV charging solutions on a new Scotland-wide framework.
The framework includes the right to tender, be selected or quote for the installation of rapid, commercial and domestic charging units on the mainland and in the Highlands and Islands.
The announcement follows a full tender and is effective immediately to an initial expiry date of December 2018.
Evolt has supplied more than 1,100 charging points to 24 local councils and many private businesses in Scotland.
Evolt general manager Justin Meyer says its commercial charge points’ reliability was a key factor in being selected for the new framework: ‘Our equipment is installed in both urban and rural environments, including on remote islands such as the Shetlands, and has helped to drive forward Scotland’s sustainability agenda over the past five years.’
Among the 1,100 Evolt charge points installed in Scotland are 85 of the top-of-the-range Evolt Rapid chargers. Each unit can efficiently charge two EVs to 80% of their battery life within 30 minutes through a 50Kw DC and 43Kw AC outlet.
The units are user-friendly, tamper proof and offer simultaneous charging functionality on both fast and rapid charge points. They also contain a built in 3G communications modem enabling remote monitoring of the charging process and charging data collection.
