Evolt completes remote installation of Rapid charging units
Commercial electrical vehicle (EV) charging solutions specialist Evolt has supplied and installed Rapid and Fast electric vehicle (EV) charge points for Argyll and Bute Council.
The installation, which comprises seven Rapid and two Fast chargers on the Western Scotland mainland and the Isle of Mull, is the council’s first publicly available EV charging infrastructure and has been funded by Transport Scotland through a Government-led initiative that helps to promote the use of EVs in Scotland.
Each unit has a built in 3G communications modem enabling Evolt’s back office management system to remotely monitor the charging process and collect and provide charging data when needed.
Justin Meyer, general manager of Evolt, says its experience in installing systems at remote locations was key to its success in winning the contract: “The Council recognised our previous work on remote islands such as Harris, South Uist and Shetland, as well as our ability to manage and service systems in a cost-efficient and timely manner.”
