Severn Trent Water is installing more than 350 electric vehicle charge points from EVBox, as part of plans to electrify its fleet.
The move sees the UK’s second-largest water company set to install 176 double EVBox BusinessLine units, giving Severn Trent Water 352 connectors to charge from across its region.
These will be installed at operational sites, offices, and transport workshops throughout the Midlands, with Severn Trent’s region spanning from Mid-Wales to Rutland, and from the Humber down to the Bristol Channel.
Charge points are not expected to be made available for general public charging, but will instead be for fleet and visitor usage.
Helen Miles, Capital Delivery and Commercial Director of Severn Trent, said: “This partnership with EVBox, who will supply over 300 electric vehicle charging points across our sites, is a major milestone in our bid to have a fleet of vehicles that are entirely electric by 2030.
“We’re delighted to have EVBox onboard with us for this exciting journey. They’re experts in their industry and we’ll no doubt benefit from all of their experience and passion for delivering cleaner and greener ways to travel.”
Jonathan Goose, Regional Director UK & Ireland of EVBox, said: “Our vision at EVBox is to help establish a zero-emission future. I am happy to see that companies like Severn Trent are sharing this passion by encouraging carbon neutrality and sustainable transport.
“Workplace charging plays a crucial role when it comes to the transition to eMobility, and we’re proud to help Severn Trent to realize its goal of electrifying its fleet entirely within the next 10 years.”
