Chargemaster set to install 150 charge points for Lancashire CC

Chargemaster recently announced that they will be installing 150 electric vehicle charge points in Lancashire, as requested by the region’s County Council.

The roll out will begin in the first months of 2018, which will include 18 Ultracharge rapid chargers, offering CCS CHAdeMO and Type 2 charging. Also included will be 66 dual socket fast units for use with a Type 2 connector.

Chargemaster won their bid to install the charge points after Lancashire County Council put in a successful bid to the Department for Transport’s Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund.

David Martell, CEO of Chargemaster, said: “It’s fantastic that we have been selected by Lancashire County Council to help make it easier to own and drive an electric vehicle in the county, by increasing its charging infrastructure.

“There are already over 1,000 electric vehicle drivers in Lancashire and that number is expected to grow considerably over the coming years. We are committed to ensuring that electric vehicle drivers have access to charging points right across the country, so we will be improving coverage across the region.”

As the charge points go live, you will be able to find them on Zap-Map desktop and app by using the network filters. Since the units will be under the POLAR network, which now has over 5,500 charging points across the UK, dynamic data will be available to see, showing whether it is in use or available.
