SEE Services supports Yorkshire Ambulance Service with EV charging infrastructure

Facilities management and infrastructure support services company, SEE Services, is working with Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) to support the setting up of its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

YAS has over 1,250 vehicles with more electric and hybrid vehicles being added to the fleet.

A combination of 22kW AC chargers and 60kW DC chargers are being installed across the Yorkshire and Humber region in 11 locations.

The roll-out of electric vehicle charging points across the Trust’s estate aligns with YAS’s five-year Green Plan with its Sustainable Fleet Road Map and commitment to reduce its carbon footprint. The aim is to reduce carbon emissions while upholding and improving excellent patient care standards.

Set to be completed in 2024, SEE-V, a specialist division of SEE Services, is upgrading and expanding the current EV charging network for improved reliability and efficiency. In addition, an intelligent EV charging back-office solution will be integrated to enhance ongoing operation and maintenance of the chargers.

YAS serves a population of more than five million people across almost 6,000 square miles of varied terrain, from isolated moors and dales to coastline and inner cities, providing urgent and emergency care to patients.

Jeff Alden, CEO of SEE Services, said: “We are delighted to be working with Yorkshire Ambulance Service on this initiative.  As experts in charging infrastructure, we recognise the significant role an electric fleet can play in reducing an organisation’s carbon footprint and understand the critical importance of a reliable EV charging infrastructure to keep the fleet of emergency and non-emergency vehicles operational. We’re fully committed to supporting YAS in its efforts to enhance sustainability and transportation efficiency.”

Ben Slater, Capital Planning Manager at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, commented: “This initiative is one of a number of steps the Trust is taking to address the environmental issues we are all facing.  With several electric vehicles being added to our fleet, mainly for use in our non-emergency Patient Transport Service and support services, it’s important that we have the right infrastructure in place to support the change in vehicle profile.”
