Customer: Major Car Manufacturer
Project: Multiple Super Charging sites around UK
Date: April 2016 – On going
Location: Multiple Sites
Pascon are currently working in association with a major car manufacturer who are expanding their current charging network to provide multiple electric sites across the motorway network within the UK. The installation of these Superchargers, initially at a number of strategically located service stations, means that there is full coverage across the country for their current range of electric cars.
Pascon are the trusted ICP provider in the delivery, design and installation of these 21, 1MW sites. Once these sites are energised they then allow these charging points to accommodate 12 vehicles at any one time and charging from “flat to full” in 20 minutes, rather than previous generation of charging facilities which would take far longer.
As well as connecting the charging facilities, Pascon have also installed the connections to a number of containerised battery storage units to help the client with peak lopping demand and exporting to the local network.
Working in unison with the client, every site provides their own unique engineering challenge in terms of access to the nearest point of connections and the variety of switchgear required in different areas of the country. Due to the numerous variable issues on each site, Pascon have had to have a very close working relationship with the client in order to meet their requirements.
The roll out of these charging sites have been implemented within 3 months from start to date of energisation and this timely response has meant that we are meeting the customer’s expectations and ensuring the success of the manufacturer’s brand.
