The Fast Charger Foundation has been selected and installed within a “Rapid Electronics” parking lot in Colchester. Working closely with Replenishh, an EV division within the Rapid Group, we supplied the foundation to install a Schneider fast charger dispenser.
This universal system utilizes the Retention Socket, selected with a duckfoot bend option for this installation, to provide a positively ducted connection to an access chamber, located nearby. Dispensers can be installed directly within the Retention Socket, however, in this instance, the Schneider unit was secured to a spigotted adapter plate and then installed, to accommodate the manufacturer-specific design.
Facilitating civils and electrical cabling works completion prior to the delivery of dispenser units; the Fast Charger Foundation provided a simplified installation and guaranteed no conflict in time schedules between contractors, enabling adherence to strict time constraints. While not in use, the cables are stored in the Retention Socket, which is then sealed with a pedestrian plug to eradicate any trip hazards.
The system has provided improved access to all utility cables for ongoing maintenance purposes and will allow for future upgrades to accommodate inevitable advancements in technology.
