PROJECT OVERVIEW

AN Post fleet electrification project is aimed at reducing the Post’s environmental impact in Irish cities by introducing 750 electric delivery vehicles on the street by 2022 with 200 active already in 2019.

The project oversaw the installation of 193 EVSE across Ireland with 50 more EV charging points in construction by the end of 2019. The largest single-site installation in Rivensdale includes 28 EVSE, while 5 INCH charging stations contribute to low emission deliveries in the Irish capital, at one of the Dublin landmarks – The General Post Office building.

ETREL SOLUTION

Etrel INCH charging stations, selected for the project, support different charging scenarios at fleet charging hubs including cluster connections with Static or Dynamic Load Management, depending on the location-specific requirements, ensuring the fleet is fully charged overnight at the lowest possible cost.
