GEFCO to install 290 e-Totem EV charging points

25 November 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Net-Zero


GEFCO is in the final phase of an ambitious project to install 290 electric vehicle charging stations on compounds across Europe. 

 

Made to order by e-Totem, these facilities will help carmakers and dealers charge vehicles before delivery to end-customers.

 

Installed in phases, 145 new charging stations will be up and running by the end of 2021 on 23 GEFCO compounds in eight European countries including the UK, Belgium and France. 

 

Albert Bouchoucha, Director of Industrial Car Flows at GEFCO, said, “The transition to greener fuel requires major investments in new infrastructure. These new EV charging stations will provide a welcome boost to EV manufacturers and dealerships, and we’re delighted to be helping our customers adapt to demand, true to our ‘Partners, unlimited’ culture.”

 

Mobilising a team of 40 GEFCO employees, this €7 million project was launched in 2020 in response to exponential growth in the EV market after the introduction of global incentives to accelerate the transition to zero-emission technologies. 

 

This has created a new challenge: to enable supply-chain provides like GEFCO to top up the batteries of new EVs at their compounds upon request before delivery to dealerships and end-customers.
