Liverpool City Region chooses Evolt Electric Vehicle charge points

Merseyside's eco-ambitions have developed further as Merseytravel, the body that provides transport advice to the Liverpool City Region's Combined Authority, has chosen Evolt for its expanded Electric Vehicle charge points after a tender process.

Evolt Charge point LpoolAPT Controls has now completed the installation of 28 of its Evolt Electric Vehicle (EV) charge points.

Fourteen Evolt charge points have been installed and are available for public use at sites across Merseyside including rail stations, hospitals and the Seacombe Ferry Terminal; a further 14 have been strategically placed at sites of importance for the local authority, such as council buildings and NHS depots.

Of the 28 chargers, a mix of 7kW dual wallmount and 7kW standard dual posts were installed, forming the first phase of Recharge, the Liverpool City Region's (LCR) scheme to encourage the public and the local authorities to simultaneously decrease their carbon footprints.

Amy Coulson, Programme Development Officer at Merseytravel said: "It sets out our commitment to promoting the use of EVs across the region, and this includes installing a charging network for an even greater public take up of environmentally friendly transport.

"The Liverpool City Region, which includes seven local authorities, has recently been awarded funding by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to introduce 23 Ultra Low Emission Vehicles into its fleets over the coming year," Amy continued.

Justin Meyer, General Manager of Evolt, anticipates that Evolt will remain integral to the Recharge scheme as it progresses through the phases: "We have developed a significant relationship with the LCR, helped by our experience of dealing with local councils across the country, and are now the EV charge point supplier of choice in the City Region."

Evolt is a company of the SWARCO group.
