Fortum Charge & Drive expands to East Anglia in the UK by providing Cloud Solution for EV Driver

Announced Date :  May 18, 2017

Fortum Charge & Drive continues their expansion in the UK by providing the Cloud Solution for EV Driver Ltd, located near Ipswich, East Anglia.
The cooperation was finalised at the InterCharge Conference in Berlin where both EV Driver and Fortum Charge & Drive are promoting the need for Interoperability between Charge Point Operators and a seamless ‘roaming’ experience for the end user.

Fortum Charge & Drive’s Rami Syväri explained:

“We are very enthusiastic about the cooperation with EV Driver and totally support their focused offering for the East Anglian region. We have seen in Norway that the successful operation of an extensive network of 1300 charging stations requires fast response times, which means expert, local repairs and maintenance teams on hand to service our charging stations. With this in mind, we are looking forward to working with EV Driver; they will provide the reliable and responsive service that is needed from an Operator, and we will provide our cloud solution, which enables remote monitoring and upgrades, and provides easy methods of payment at the charging stations."

EV Driver’s Linda Grave commented:

“We selected the Fortum Charge & Drive system because Fortum has a wealth of experience and their system supports our business model, promoting the EV Driver brand as a highly professional and forward thinking company that both owns our own network of charging stations as well as operating charging stations for other companies across East Anglia. The synergy between the two companies was obvious from the outset, and we are delighted to be working with Fortum to create a robust and reliable network throughout the UK that connects our drivers with the extensive Fortum network."
