According to Mark Bonnor-Moris, Siemens head of Electromobillity UK and Ireland, the Siemens charging stations can fully charge vehicles in just one hour ensuring greater availability. ‘Siemens also provides a full supply, installation and maintenance service. As the UK’s largest provider of traffic control and signalling equipment, we have a specialist field service operation that is able to support EV charging infrastructure as part of a much larger portfolio of work. This ensures that the EV chargers are maintained to a high and consistent service level ensuring the highest performance in terms of availability and safety.’
Siemens’ solution for the UK market is built on four key components; industry leading fast charging technology, modular back-office management software, extensive contact centre capabilities and comprehensive service packages. All are tailored to meet individual customer requirements and ensure maximum system availability and safety.
Siemens has already delivered its first three phase EV charging points in the UK. Fast charging units have been supplied and installed at the University of Lincoln as part of a collaborative work programme with the University to establish a new Engineering School. As part of a low carbon transportation solution for the City of Lincoln, the fast charging units are primarily being used by electric vehicles supplied by Nissan to transport staff, customers and students between Siemens’ Service business and the University.
Siemens is a delivery partner for Source London, the Capital’s plan to develop the UK’s largest electric vehicle charge point network with more charge points than petrol stations in the city, providing IT and services for the back office operations. Siemens capabilities in the Electric Vehicle market extend significantly further, from charging infrastructure and software to service maintenance, call-centre management and fleet services.
Siemens is already engaged in major projects across Europe to devise and develop solutions and business models that will help establish Electric Vehicles as a viable and attractive transport option for the long term.
