Parking technology provider Flowbird has implemented its first ever EV chargepoints with combined parking payments in the UK.
The company has partnered with chargepoint provider Innogy eMobility and payment provider Paythru to install two charging points for Napier Parking at its Pall Mall car park in Barnsley.
The three-phased chargepoints installed provide 22kWh charge and are compatible with EVs that operate on single-phase charging, such as cars made by Tesla, Jaguar I-Pace, Hyundai, Nissan, Kia, Opel and Mercedes.
Jamie de Savary, managing director of Napier Parking, said: “Flowbird is known in the parking industry as being a provider of solutions that are reliable and have a long shelf-life.
“We’re confident EV users will have a stress-free experience when charging their vehicles and paying for parking provision.”
As well as being designed to offer fast and reliable EV charging, the new Flowbird chargepoints feature an app to accept payment for both parking and charging.
The technology and the operation of the chargepoints comprises Innogy’s physical infrastructure, combined with Paythru’s back-office software for processing payments.
Flowbird also provides 24/7 user support and the chargepoints will be covered by Flowbird’s maintenance contract, ensuring that the units are available at all times.
