Deployment of the IONITY network of electric vehicle charging stations
SPIE is deploying the network of IONITY, a joint venture by several automobile manufacturers: BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Audi and Porsche. Its objective? To build a European network of high power charging terminals for electric vehicles.
More than 400 high power charging terminals in all will be available throughout Europe by 2020. These terminals have a capacity of 350 kW.
SPIE was tasked with two types of operations: the preparation of 66 charging stations for the Netherlands, the UK, France, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, as well as the deployment of 103 terminals on the major road arteries in Germany, Belgium, France, Poland, Hungary and the Netherlands. In Belgium, SPIE installed 4 terminals in Bierset, 8 in Tieu, 8 in Froyennes and 10 in Wetteren.
By proving itself as a partner of choice for the design, installation, maintenance and operation of recharging terminals for electric vehicles of this ambitious network, SPIE is consolidating its position as a key player on the Smart City, interurban infrastructure, and energy transition markets.
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
