Chargemaster Cov

ChargePoint Services has announced that it has been working alongside Coventry City Council to upgrade the electric vehicle charging facilities in Coventry city centre.

The project includes the removal of seven Chargemaster chargers which were left over from the Plugged in Places legacy project, and replacing them with seven new Twin Socket 7kW chargers connected to the GeniePoint network. 

The phased installation includes, two new chargers situated in Croft Road and Little Park Street, three chargers at the Memorial Park & Ride, all of which are now fully functional and available to use, and two additional chargers. The final destination is still to be confirmed. 

EV Drivers can access the new chargers in Coventry via RFID card or smartphone, and will be supported by ChargePoint Services’ customer care team, available 24/7.

ChargePoint Services’ managing director Alex Bamberg said: “The City of Coventry is geographically situated at the global centre of cutting-edge, automotive engineering technology. 

“Coventry City Council is majorly supportive of clean vehicle technology and we are very pleased to be supporting their efforts to provide outstanding recharging facilities to drivers visiting the city centre. 

“We look forward to the next phase of the project which will be to provide rapid charging facilities enabling even faster charging for drivers around Coventry city centre.”
