Brno, Apr 26 (BD) – Yesterday, the City of Brno, acting as a shareholder of Teplárny Brno (Brno Heating Plant Company), instructed the Board of Directors to plan for the installation of public rapid charging stations for electric cars.
Drivers will be able to use them for the first time in the second half of next year, the official press release reads.
As a pilot project, four rapid charging points for electric cars will be installed over the next year and a half.
Three stations will be installed near or on the premises of large production facilities of Teplárny Brno (Červený mlýn, Staré Brno, Špitálka).
“Another station is to be built near a shopping mall. We are now assessing which of the shopping centres selected within the framework of the Electromobility Concept is best suited for building the station. The final selection will be made from a group that includes Globus, Avion, Olympia, and Vaňkovka,” Petr Hladík, First Deputy Mayor and Chairman of the Teplárny Brno Board of Directors explained to the press.
The project documentation will likely be completed by September of this year.
The cost of construction of one station is estimated at approximately 1 million Czech crowns, according to the official press release published yesterday.
