ChargePoint Services to install London-wide Olympic EV charging infrastructure
For the duration of the Olympic and Paralympic games, the network of GE Durastation points will be used to charge a fleet of BMW and MINI electric vehicles being used to transport athletes and officials between venues.
CPS will also provide and operate the software used to monitor and control the network. Once the games are complete, the points will be integrated into London’s public charging infrastructure.
The contract follows CPS’s recent work installing a network of charging points spanning the UK’s motorway network, working on behalf of Ecotricity.
Alex Bamberg, sales director at CPS said: ‘The contract with LOCOG is a fantastic endorsement of our capabilities to enhance GE’s DuraStation design to meet the LOCOG requirements and also provide on-going back office support for the charge points.
‘Our relationship with GE has gone from strength to strength and we look forward to delivering many more projects in the near future where we have already put forward a joint offer’
