Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust provides a variety of health and care services supporting more than 500,000 people living in the Northumberland and North Tyneside area. With 12,000 members of staff, the trust is one of the largest employers in the North East.

The Brief

The trust needed a cost-effective transport solution to replace their fleet of diesel vans and to help improve their carbon footprint, making the service more efficient. After deciding to transition their fleet to EVs, they needed a comprehensive charging infrastructure, keeping their vehicles on the road. 

As one of our biggest customers, the trust has a range of fast and rapid charging facilities at six locations. To further their infrastructure, they got in touch to add more charging points to their locations. 

The Solution 

Working with the trust, we installed a further eight 7kW chargers to their extensive charging infrastructure across their six locations. With a total of 34 7kW AC outlets and four 50kW DC chargers, supporting their almost all-electric fleet of vehicles. 

“Elmtronics are a very professional and knowledgeable company that work alongside the hospital Estates Department. From first point of contact with Elmtronics, the staff were efficient and professional and have an exceptional set of expertise. They quickly recognised our needs and were very knowledgeable about the infrastructure and equipment that was required.

“The quality of the EV charging equipment supplied by Elmtronics is remarkable and meets all of the trust’s needs. The customer service is excellent and nothing seems to be a problem.” – Michael Taylor, Trustwide Hotel Services Officer (Portering) 

With a reliable charging infrastructure supplied and installed by Elmtronics, the project has been so successful the trust won the Sustainable Achievement Award at the prestigious institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management.
