More ecology in SEGRO parks with electric car chargers
SEGRO, a leading developer, manager and owner of modern warehouse and production space, will equip all its logistics parks throughout Poland with chargers for electric cars and hybrids this year
This is another, next to, inter alia, external LED lighting, from the pro-ecological solutions implemented by the developer.
Electric and hybrid vehicles are considered to be the future of the automotive industry, also in the area of logistics and distribution. Taking into account both the growing trend and the natural environment, 14 electric car chargers are already operating in the SEGRO parks in Poznań, Stryków, Łódź, Gliwice and Tychy, and ultimately all of the developer's parks in Poland will be equipped with them by the end of 2019. . In total, 24 devices of this type will be installed in SEGRO's logistics parks by December 2019.
- I believe that the project we are implementing will contribute to the increase in the number of electric vehicles. We want to encourage and motivate customers to switch from traditional vehicles to electric and hybrid vehicles. Our park maintenance services are already working on the project of replacing the fleet of vehicles dedicated to their service with fully electric service vehicles - says Waldemar Witczak, Regional Director of SEGRO. - I also very much hope that thanks to the actions taken by us, we will contribute to the reduction of exhaust emissions. As the interest grows, we plan to gradually develop the network of charging points.
20 of the installed devices for charging cars are double power points with two cables terminated with a Type 2 universal plug, which also supports Type 1. More than half of the installed chargers can simultaneously charge two vehicles with a power of 22 kW each. The stations are launched by providing users with proximity cards that enable them to start charging the connected vehicle. In addition, they are equipped with modules for remote billing of energy consumed and monitoring the charging statuses currently connected to the car charger through an appropriate application that will be launched soon.
The implementation of the possibility of charging electric vehicles in all parks is another of SEGRO's pro-ecological projects in Poland. In 2017, the developer replaced the external lighting of logistics parks with energy-saving LEDs, and also installs them in all newly built facilities and in modernized areas. Moreover, each new SEGRO development project undergoes a strict BREEAM assessment, where environmental protection is one of the key elements of evaluation both at the level of construction works and during the subsequent use of the facility. One of the latest implementations of the developer is also a media monitoring system in the cloud, which has been made available to most park customers throughout Poland and, thanks to the option of real-time media monitoring, allows you to control their use, and thus enables greater efficiency, both economic and ecological.
