We were awarded the contract by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland for the Provision of Public eCar Charge Points at The Northern Ireland Environment Agency’s Country Parks. The Northern Ireland Environment Agency is responsible for the operation and management of seven Country Parks and approximately 65 Nature Reserves across Northern Ireland.
We successfully tendered for the replacement of the existing public electric car/vehicle charging points with new 7.2kW Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) public electric vehicle charging points at four existing sites – Crawfordsburn Country Park, Ness Country Park, Peatlands Park and Roe Valley Country Park.
We removed the faulty charging points, and designed, supplied and installed replacement Rolec 7.2kw charging points under a lease agreement. Our in-house team completed all electrical, data cabling, earthing works and associated ground works as well as testing, commissioning and handover.
Upon completion we completed the OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme Grant on the client’s behalf, and we are accredited installers under the OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme Grant scheme. Rolec’s data solutions enable us to provide automated quarterly chargepoint consumption reports as required in order to meet eligibility criteria for the OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme Grant. In addition, it provides access to live monitoring of the charge points including charging sessions, socket activity, driver groups, tariffs and billing configuration.
We also provide ongoing maintenance of new charging points for the next five years, with ongoing support to NIEA, as the leasee of the stations, and the general public as the users of the charging stations. The electric car charging points are operated under the NI Public Sector network and operate under the OCPP (a language that allows compliant EV charging points and back-office management systems to communicate seamlessly with one another).
