Updating EV Fleet Charging at Royal Borough of Greenwich

The Client 

GS Plus Ltd provides a huge range of services to businesses across the UK, including fleet management, catering services and cleaning. Working with a variety of industries they supply solutions to support their needs. The firm is responsible for the fleet management of The Royal Borough of Greenwich, the local government covering the Borough of Greenwich, in South East Greater London. 

 Following a full review of their EV strategy, to include new electric vehicle purchases, the team established that their current infrastructure was no longer fit-for-purpose. 

As early EV adopters, the council had invested in EV charging Infrastructure 8 years ago, leading by example. However, with the ever-changing technical capabilities of the hardware, recognising the back office management platform had to provide total transparency providing data that was fundamental to view for the effective management of their EV fleet, and understanding how crucial it was to have trusted aftercare support; it became apparent the infrastructure had become outdated and unreliable. 

Coupled with some restrictions on power capacity, and understanding there was already an existing level of infrastructure we could upgrade, GS Plus Ltd undertook a full feasibility study, which they incorporated into their specification. 

The Solution 

With vast experience in upgrading legacy charging infrastructure, our team reviewed the specification and we were able to quickly and easily fully scope out the infrastructure required. 

10 Eve 22kW dual chargers were installed and to accommodate the limited capacity the chargers were load balanced. Each of the chargers were supplied with an in-built 4G data connection linking to the back off network so management could review and monitor the charging data from each charger. This option also included a 5-year maintenance package ensuring post-installation, minimal disruption or downtime of their chargers should any issues arise. 

“It’s been a pleasure working with GSPlus Ltd fleet team to support them on the next phase of their EV charging journey. Not only did we meet their requirements but our installation, smart charging network and maintenance package will ensure longevity and future-proofing their infrastructure.” Natasha Fry, Mer UK, Head of Strategic Accounts – fleet and workplace
