Evolt EV charging points installed in Merseyside


APT Controls has completed the installation of 28 of its Evolt electric vehicle (EV) charge points for the Liverpool City Region (LCR).

The units have been installed as part of LCR’s commitment to promoting the use of EVs across the region.

Fourteen Evolt charge points have been installed and are available for public use at sites across Merseyside including rail stations, hospitals and the Seacombe Ferry Terminal.

A further 14 have been strategically placed at sites of importance for the local authority, such as council buildings and NHS depots.

Of the 28 chargers, a mix of 7kW dual wallmount and 7kW standard dual posts have been installed.

Merseytravel, the executive body that provides professional, strategic and operational transport advice to the LCR’s Combined Authority, and the body responsible for coordinating bids and projects, chose Evolt after a full tender process.

Amy Coulson, programme development officer at Merseytravel, said: “The LCR, which includes seven local authorities, is committed to leading by example and has recently been awarded funding by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles to introduce 23 Ultra Low Emission Vehicles into its fleets over the coming year.”
