VolkerSmart Technologies installed electric vehicle charging units at four taxis bays for Luton Council on Station Road, Park Street, Cheapside and Chaud End Lane.
The electric vehicle charging units will help Luton reduce its carbon footprint by encouraging taxi drivers to switch to electric vehicles.
VolkerSmart Technologies delivered a full turnkey solution – from design, procurement of materials and metered connections to installation, civils and electrical works, commissioning and lastly planned and reactive maintenance.
To ensure the charging points are future-proofed, the team used NAL sockets with conversation plates, so when technology evolves, the infrastructure underneath can be left in place resulting in minimal impact or cost to the client when the units are replaced.
