Case study

Sanders Blue Diamond Garden Centre

The Overview of the Challenge

Rock were asked to install a new rapid EV hub at the Sanders Blue Diamond garden centre within a 8 week window on behalf of Mer.

Rock liaised with the DNO, installing a new looped HV supply, complete with packaged substation, GRP, all logistics and all associated private network connections to supply 4No. dual satellite 160kWh Kempower EVCPs (Electrical vehicle charging points) & 1No. dual 22kWh Alfen EVCP, 2Nr Power Units and 800A feeder pillar.

Our Approach

>Rock installed the works ahead of programme completion (6 weeks from first spade in the ground to client handover), we were able to bring the POC (point of connection) date forward due to our experienced personnel.

> This site was the second of Mer’s rapid EV hubs within the UK.

> Rock pulled out all the stops to help our client in an already busy summer schedule.

The Results

EV users now have another rapid charger destination located conveniently just off the M5 at jct 22 where they can enjoy speeds of up to 160 kWh for a quick top-up and go, or utilise a cheaper tariff, slower 22kWh charger and take in the serene leisure facilities on offer at the Sanders Blue Diamond garden centre.

“We pulled out all the stops to help Mer in an already busy summer schedule. Rock installed the works ahead of programme completion (7 weeks from first spade in the ground to client handover) and we were able to bring the energisation date forward due to our experienced personnel. This was the second of Mer’s rapid EV hubs within the UK.”
