The Maximum demand: This site was quite unique in the fact that the developer had provided capacity ready for future EV charging points making this installation ready for the immediate solution. Following load testing and confirming the maximum demand at peak usage, the provision provided during construction of the development was adequate; having enough spare capacity to allow full power at any time.
Connectivity: Other challenges included the car park’s underground location and the lack of a 3G or 4G signal. Wi-fi connectivity was required for the client to bill users for their electricity consumption.
PAYG: 7kW Charging System – Active Solution
The installation was incredibly smooth as we were able to utilise 80% of the existing containment system within the underground Car park as the electrical designer of the block had the vision and made provision that this technology would be used and providing capacity with the cable tray and trucking containment.
The Chargers were positioned on structural columns between bays allowing for Charging points to be shared between spaces freely
The developer even allowed a distribution panel ready for this installation, so once our circuits were installed, we just needed to fit the associated final circuit protective devices and we were ready to ‘switch on’
Well done Berkeley Homes..
