Connected Kerb EV Charger

Client: Connected Kerb
Project length: 2 days
Project value: £2K
Completion date: October 2022
HF divisions involved: Electrical, Green Energy

Brief project description: Our Green Energy team were called out to Callander, near Stirling to replace a faulty wall mounted EV charger with a brand new Connected Kerbs dual Gecko charger system. As more and more drivers switch to Electric Vehicles, ensuring that the UK charging network is not just expanding but being well maintained is of vital importance.  Connected Kerbs ‘Gecko’ EV charging system is designed to fit into the existing architecture of the streets of towns and cities like Callander with minimal visual impact while delivering vital charging points for the ever expanding number of electric vehicles on our roads.

Project Challenges: Going from a wall mounted EV charging system to a ground mounted charging system is more than just simply unscrewing one device and installing another. Civils contractors were required to provide ducting for the new ground mounted unit and for the installation of the Mounting Box that the new dual mount chargers would be fitted to.

When the work began to install the ducting and mounting box, a previous concrete pad for an older building that may have been in the position was discovered. This impeded the ability to get an earth rod or ConduDisc in place to provide a TT earth.

Our specialist Green Energy Electricians managed to find a suitable ‘work around’ solution to this by install a Matt:E auto-reset PME device. This device, when it detects a supply fault, will immediately cut off the supply to the EV charger. When it detects the fault has cleared, it automatically resets.
