Lucy Zodion accelerates EV adoption on the Isle of Man

In a concerted effort to combat climate change and foster sustainable transportation solutions, Manx Utilities, the primary provider of mains water, wastewater, and electricity services on the Isle of Man, has joined forces with Lucy Zodion to propel the island’s electric vehicle (EV) revolution. With a shared commitment to environmental stewardship, this collaboration aims to significantly enhance the Isle of Man’s infrastructure for EV charging.

Aligned with the Isle of Man Government’s ambitious environmental goals, Manx Utilities has embarked on a mission to reduce carbon emissions and diminish reliance on fossil fuels by promoting the widespread adoption of electric vehicles. Recognising the pivotal role of EVs in achieving these objectives, Manx Utilities has initiated a strategic plan to develop a comprehensive public charging network across the island, in line with European standards.

To bolster the island’s charging infrastructure, Manx Utilities sought the expertise of Lucy Zodion, a leader in electrical distribution innovations. Lucy Zodion’s EVIS Feeder Pillars were selected to support the expansion of the charging network, with a focus on improving existing facilities and strategically installing new charge points across picturesque locations, such as Peel, a seaside town and fishing port.

The deployment of Lucy Zodion’s modular pillars enables swift installation and future scalability, ensuring that the charging network can readily accommodate the growing demand for electric vehicles on the Isle of Man. Equipped with advanced features including anti-condensation heaters and PEN fault detection technology, these pillars represent a milestone in the island’s transition to sustainable transportation solutions.

Mark Christian, Business Development Project Delivery Manager at Manx Utilities, comments, “We chose to partner with Lucy Zodion for its unparalleled flexibility in designing and manufacturing EV pillars tailored to our specific needs. Their continued support has been invaluable as we expand our charging infrastructure to meet the growing demand on the Isle of Man.”

The collaboration between Manx Utilities and Lucy Zodion has not only expedited the deployment of EV charging points, but it has also minimised disruptions to daily life on the island by reducing time on-site installation time, particularly in high-traffic areas.
