Vinci Energies UK and Elektromotive Unite to Provide EV Recharging Infrastructure
By combining Elektromotive’s technological experience with recharging bays and Vinci Energies’ capacity to design, implement, operate and finance large infrastructure projects, the two companies expect to become market leaders.
“This is not only an exciting partnership for Elektromotive but is also, at last, a pivotal step in the deployment of a fully-operational and networked recharging infrastructure for electric cars. We are delighted that a company with such a large and diversified portfolio of expertise is working with us to expand the current Elektrobay network. VINCI Energies has the leverage to accelerate the mass roll-out of public-access Elektrobays, plus home and workplace recharging on a mass scale – not just in the UK and Europe but also worldwide,” Elektromotive’s Managing Director, Calvey Taylor-Haw, said.
“The Electric Vehicle market is a new and exciting market, not only for UK but globally. We believe that the success of this market will depend upon the availability of accessible, reliable, secure and well maintained charging points," Peter Rooney, Managing Director of VINCI Energies United Kingdom, commented.
“We are delighted that this partnership has been established as it will provide the first turnkey solution for mass deployment of a charging infrastructure. With Vinci Group’s substantial electrical and construction engineering resources, and Elektromotive’s EV infrastructure expertise, the partnership will ensure that the infrastructure can be deployed with appropriate speed and scale to support this fast-developing new market," he added.
