Two triple-outlet, multi-standard rapid charging points have been supplied and installed by Siemens in Cirencester and Moreton-in-Marsh for Cotswold District Council (CDC), providing fast top-ups for visitors and residents with electric vehicles travelling within and through the region.
CDC’s Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Partnerships Councillor, Chris Hancock said: ‘The new technology will provide an important strategic link between existing charging points on the M4, M5 and M40, encouraging more drivers to stop off in the Cotswolds. We are always looking for innovative ways to harness technology which reduces our carbon footprint, and the installation of EV chargers in both Cirencester and Moreton will be seen as a very positive step forward.’
Siemens is a major supplier in the growing UK Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure market. The company’s range of industry leading charging technology includes both modular DC and AC variants for all charging standards, including CHAdeMO and CSC COMBO 2.
Siemens has won a significant number of new contracts for EV rapid charging technology across the country in recent months. In Manchester, the company has supplied and installed four multi-standard triple-outlet rapid chargers including one on the approach to Picadilly station for Manchester’s first 100% electric bus.
