FM Conway wins west London charge points deal
FM Conway is to install 3,000 electric vehicle charge points across the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.
The Kent-headquartered infrastructure firm secured a deal to deliver the SureCharge units in the west London district by March 2023.
FM Conway launched SureCharge as its own electric vehicle (EV) charging solution last year and aims to roll it out across London in partnership with Joju Charging.
The latest deal, through Transport for London’s Go Ultra Low City Scheme framework, will see the units placed on the streets of Hammersmith and Fulham.
As part of the contract, FM Conway is matching Office for Low Emission Vehicles funding already secured by the council.
The SureCharge units can be added to the door of existing streetlight columns using patented Safevolt technology that removes the need for costly and disruptive secondary earthing.
Hammersmith and Fulham council leader Stephen Cowan said: “With SureCharge, we’ve found a way to connect more parts of the borough to the grid even faster.
“By developing cost-effective, state-of-the-art technologies with top partners like FM Conway, we’re matching quantity with quality.”
FM Conway lighting director Graham Cartledge added: “Using existing lamp columns for EV charging is a cost-effective way of providing residents with an on-street charging solution.
“We are able to utilise the lamp columns adjacent to parking bays in areas where there are very few properties with driveways or garages, which seems the obvious choice.
“We offer a full turnkey solution, from design, install, commission and maintenance, as well as running the platform for charging sessions.”
