ChargePlace Scotland will soon begin the trial of new technologies on charge points across the network in a bid to improve network reliability, particularly on charge points in the most remote locations of Scotland.
The trial is to take place on Siemens, APT and Elektromotive charge points, with the installation of new hardware expected to begin at the end of the month.
Charge points at Ullapool Harbour, Roybridge, Mallaig, Orkney, and Dunkeld have been selected for the trial, with the possibility of more locations being added at a later date.
“We recognise that trust in the reliability of the network is key to ensuring the success of ChargePlace Scotland,” said CPS Network Manager, Peter Smith.
“To that end we are delighted to be running this trial with the support of Transport Scotland to attempt to provide a robust and reliable solution to the communications issues that have occurred.”
