Elektromotive Installs Recharging Stations in Belgium and Luxembourg

Elektromotive decided that The PluginCompany, an experienced group in green mobility, will install 20 units of electric vehicle charging stations in Belgium and Luxembourg. The 20 Elektrobay units will be installed by the end of this year.

The project will start next month, when the companies will install an Elektrobay at the Brussels headquarters of LeasePlan, the world’s largest vehicle management and leasing provider. In 2010, other installations at LeasePlan locations will follow, a press release published on theautochannel.com mentions.

The two companies are hoping to get attention from major businesses and legislators in Belgium and Luxembourg, as they learn about the advantages of zero-emissions motoring and the need for compatible recharging infrastructures throughout Europe.

Regarding the installations, Elektromotive’s Managing Director, Calvey Taylor-Haw, said, “In Belgium and Luxembourg there is enormous potential for uptake of EVs, and it is crucial that the right charging infrastructure and service backup is in place to facilitate their widespread use. Working with The PluginCompany has allowed us to target some major organisations in these markets, and we have quickly secured an order for 20 Elektrobays.

The Elektrobay is a practical and well-proven recharging solution that is attracting significant interest from organisations seeking to reduce the environmental impact of their vehicle fleets. Our aim in Belgium and Luxembourg is to spread awareness of zero-emissions motoring, and we expect to install large volumes of Elektrobays for public and private use next year,” added Leo Van Geyt, Managing Director of The PluginCompany.

Elektromotive is UK’s most important provider of recharging stations. Due to the fact that this industry exploded in the past few years, Elektromotive exports its products to Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Iceland, Sweden and Saudi Arabia.
