The British National Westminster Bank (NatWest) wants to install 600 charging points at its locations by 2023. The charging points will also be available for use by the bank’s customers. The contract to supply the charging infrastructure goes to the Engie brand Equans.
The company itself wants to convert its fleet to 300 electric vehicles. The charging points will be for its own fleet, but also for its customers. “We’re helping our employees switch to an electric car and achieve ‘net zero’ when commuting,” says Michael Lynch, head of climate solutions at NatWest.
But the charging points, to be built by Engie subsidiary Equans, are optimised for employee charging rather than a short customer visit to the bank: according to the announcement, the AC charging points will only offer 7.4 kW of charging power.
The chargers are to go into operation before the end of August at Donegall Square East in Belfast as the first NatWest location.
