PitPoint wins EV tender for Brussels-Capital Region
Innovation, efficiency and sustainability, the decisive factors in the selection of PitPoint
14 November 2018
PitPoint will exclusively supply, install and operate electric charging points in the Brussels-Capital Region from early 2019. This will take place under a ten-year concession granted by the local Ministry of Mobility and the Ministry of Environment.
Major step on the road to better air quality
To improve air quality in the capital, the Brussels-Capital Region is seeking alternatives for its present day fleet of polluting vehicles. By establishing a network of charging points it is taking a major step in the right direction. The final number will depend on the level of demand from residents and the contracting authority. Given the strong growth of the electrical vehicle fleet the points are expected to be very much in demand.
The first charging points in the basic network will be installed in the course of 2019, according to demand from residents and the contracting authority. To install these charging posts PitPoint wil also receive a grant from BENEFIC (BrussEls NEtherlands Flanders Implementation of Clean power for transport).
Jan Theo Hoefakker, director of EV at PitPoint: “We are extremely proud to have won this, our first EV tender outside the Netherlands. And to have emerged so convincingly ahead of the rest only confirms the progressiveness and quality of our products and related services. ”
Co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
