ICEE partners with Rapid creating ‘one-stop-shop’ for faster installs of EV charging systems

Installer ICEE Managed Services and equipment distributor Rapid are
partnering to provide a complete Electric Vehicle (EV) charging point provision service for workplaces.

A single-source service for the implementation of high quality electric vehicle (EV) charging systems has been formed between installation contractor ICEE Managed Services and Rapid, a leading distributor of Schneider Electric premium brand EV charging and related equipment. The new service is aimed at the commercial or B2B and local authority markets.

Installing EV charging equipment may seem simple, but many potentially complicated and time-consuming questions often require answering first. By providing one point of contact, the combined resources of ICEE and Rapid will undertake and simplify that process, delivering the required outcome – a reliable and high quality EV charging service – faster, safer and at least cost to the customer and end-user.

For one or many devices, the new service includes advice on all aspects of EV charging through to equipment selection, supply, on-site installation, commissioning, and lifetime maintenance.

Paul Harris, Managing Director of ICEE Managed Services, says: “To ensure utmost reliability in the field and avoid service outage, we always advise customers to invest in high quality, premium products. When we started installing EV charging systems, because of the manufacturer’s reputation for high standards, we chose the Schneider Electric EVlink range of products, supplied by Rapid.”

For those seeking grant aid, ICEE has become an authorised installer of specific EV charge-points under the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS). This means the installer is now qualified to submit grant claims for customers. It enables the latter to save money under the WCS scheme by having installed specific types of EV workplace charging equipment offered by ICEE and Rapid.

OLEV describe the WCS as ‘a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations’.

Besides conforming to rigorous BS EN ISO 9001:2000 working practice standards, ICEE has all the certification necessary to safely install and comprehensively maintain electrical equipment including from Safecontractor, Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), and National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).
