NRMA Electric Vehicle Charging
The NRMA electric vehicle fast charging network is the largest regional network of fast chargers in Australia, helping to future-proof communities and keep people moving now and into the future.
With project inception as early as 2018, NRMA were true pioneers and industry leaders for recognising the growing demand and necessity for more sustainable transport and taking action by investing in creating this extensive fast-charging network. Northrop proudly supported NRMA in this initiative by preparing design documentation for electric vehicle charging kiosks, spread across 31 sites in NSW . Strategically placed every 100km, the kiosks will provide motorists with convenient access to rapid charging of electric vehicles.
As relatively new technology and a niche market, Northrop were required to think outside the box to capture the intent and criteria of our client and present a coordinated solution to achieve a user-friendly experience. A project with many moving parts, Northrop liaised with numerous Councils, energy authorities and EV manufacturers to present a unique tender package. The 31 sites were successfully delivered and Northrop continued to provide support and advice on construction-related queries to NRMA.
Following completion, Northrop were subsequently engaged to help expand this network by supporting Stage 2 of the operation, which includes a further 19 sites in remote locations across NSW.
This initiative is consistent with Northrop’s core values to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Transition to sustainable, zero emissions road transport will have a significant positive impact on air quality and we are proud to be partnering with NRMA to deliver much-needed community infrastructure.
