C’est au Stade Océane, lieu emblématique de la région, qu’a été inauguré le premier hub de recharge électrique de la métropole, ce lundi 5 décembre en présence d’Edouard PHILIPPE, Président de la Communauté urbaine Le Havre Seine Métropole et de Vincent Baril, Président de Shell France.

L’événement s’inscrit dans le cadre du déploiement d’un réseau de plus de 500 points de charge pour véhicules électriques et hybrides sur le territoire. Géré par ubitricity, membre du groupe Shell, ce projet fait du Havre Seine Métropole un territoire pionnier de la mobilité électrique en France.

Le Havre, le 5 decembre 2022 : ubitricity, fabricant et exploitant de solutions de recharge pour véhicules électriques et filiale à 100% du groupe Shell, a été retenu par la Communauté Urbaine pour déployer un dense réseau de bornes de recharge pour soutenir le développement de la mobilité électrique et atteindre, les objectifs de transition énergétique du Havre Seine Métropole.

Le projet prévoit, d’ici fin 2024, d’installer plus de 500 points de charge pour tous les résidents, visiteurs et touristes de la région du Havre, avec 476 points de charge AC (22kW) et 58 points de charge rapide DC (150 kW).

L’installation des premiers chargeurs AC a débuté cet été. Une vingtaine de points de recharge seront accessibles d’ici fin 2022, avant la poursuite progressive du déploiement en 2023 et 2024. Sur l’ensemble des 54 communes de la Communauté urbaine Le Havre Seine Métropole, ubitricity prévoit d’équiper plus de 150 sites permettant ainsi une forte couverture du territoire.

Les conducteurs de véhicules électriques pourront accéder aux solutions de recharge d’ubitricity, à travers les applications de mobilités classiques telle que Shell Recharge. Les points de charge seront exclusivement alimentés en électricité produite à partir d’énergie renouvelable.

Le savoir-faire auprès des collectivités locales d’ubitricity pour le déploiement d’infrastructures de recharge publiques de véhicules électriques s’ajoute à l’expertise de Shell Recharge en France en matière de mobilité électrique, pour proposer une gamme complète de solutions et services de recharge, pratiques et abordables.
