SYMPHONY EV-ZE have installed 62 new electric vehicle charging units at key locations across the Liverpool City Region, improving infrastructure and accessibility for electric vehicle drivers.
The extensive electric vehicle charging point project has been delivered by SYMPHONY EV-ZE on behalf of Merseytravel, APT eVolt and OLEV. The charging units have been installed at public sites ranging from hospitals including Liverpool Women’s and The Royal Liverpool University Hospital, train stations including Birkenhead North and Newton Le Willows, Mount Pleasant multi storey car park in Liverpool city centre, Widnes’s Select Stadium and major local employer Jaguar Land Rover in Speke.
There have also been a number of fast, future proof charging points installed at private NHS sites and council fleet depots across the Wirral, Liverpool and Southport areas, funded via the Energy Saving Trust ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) Readiness Project and delivered by SYMPHONY EV-ZE.
John Robinson, managing director at SYMPHONY EV-ZE said, “My ambition has always been to help Liverpool and the City Region become one of the lowest carbon cities in Europe and this project, in partnership with Merseytravel, APT eVolt and OLEV, demonstrates another step to achieving this.
“We pride ourselves on employing local people in our civil works and installation teams and strive to push the boundaries of electric vehicle technology, having recently developed the first British racing electric go carts and motor bikes, and our own British manufactured and fully approved electric vehicle charging points and adapter cables. We are also currently working with Arriva to install infrastructure for Super-Fast Rapid charging points for their 100% Electric Bus Project for the Liverpool City Region.”
Stephen Leonard, Merseytravel Funding & Programme Development Team Leader added, “We have been very impressed with how SYMPHONY EV-ZE has worked with us to install a network of charge points, expanding the charging infrastructure across the Liverpool City Region and making it easier and more attractive for people to choose electric vehicles.”
