Severn Trent, a provider of water for around 8 million people in the Midlands of England and part of Wales, is working toward electrifying its entire vehicle fleet by 2030. It has selected Amsterdam-based EVBox to provide 352 charging points at operational sites, offices and transport workshops throughout its service area.
EVBox has installed over 100,000 charging points across more than 55 countries, including residential, commercial, public and fast charging products.
EVBox will provide Severn Trent with 176 double EVBox BusinessLine Level 2 charging stations, and will facilitate the installation process through online training.
Severn Trent chose EVBox as an EVSE provider because of its support for the Open Charge Point Protocol, and because the company offers customized branding on its hardware. Severn Trent was able to select a customized design for its charging stations.
“This partnership with EVBox is a major milestone in our bid to have a fleet of vehicles that are entirely electric by 2030,” said Helen Miles, Capital Delivery and Commercial Director of Severn Trent. “They’re experts in their industry and we’ll no doubt benefit from all of their experience and passion for delivering cleaner and greener ways to travel.”
“Workplace charging plays a crucial role when it comes to the transition to eMobility, and we’re proud to help Severn Trent to realize its goal of electrifying its fleet entirely within the next 10 years,” said Jonathan Goose, UK & Ireland Regional Director of EVBox.
