Last Mile Solutions wins together with ENGIE tender Rotterdam

Rotterdam, 08-04-2021 – The Rotterdam e-mobility pioneer Last Mile Solutions is taking over all charging stations in Rotterdam and the surrounding, cooperating municipalities.  In addition, Last Mile Solutions, together with ENGIE and We Drive Solar, will be realizing all new charging stations in the region over the next three years, with an operating period of eight years.

In addition to the municipality of The Hague, another 29 municipalities in South-Holland will be managed by the platform of Last Mile Solutions, including Rotterdam. Last Mile Solutions will work on future-proofing the digital infrastructure for handling charging transactions.  On top of that, Last Mile Solutions will focus on the implementation of smart charging applications to establish a more sustainable energy grid.

Jacco van der Burg, COO of Last Mile Solutions: “We are very proud winning this tender. It is a wonderful challenge to take care of the realisation of new charging points, as well as the management of the existing infrastructure in the Rotterdam region. It also fills us with pride to do so as a Rotterdam-based company.

ENGIE is the main contractor for the project. Together they will develop innovations to ensure the network can handle the rapid increase of electric vehicles on the road.

Eric van Voorden, founder and CEO of Last Mile Solutions: “Innovation is key for us, we will actively contribute to a user-friendly expansion of the charging infrastructure in the region, taking into account the capacities of the electricity grid.

Last Mile Solutions will launch a handy app for the users for the 29 participating municipalities. This app will, among other things, show all active charging stations and rates throughout Europe, also useful for holidays. Last Mile Solutions will also test and apply all kinds of smart charging here.

Van der Burg: “We like to run pilots in the Netherlands, but now is the time to deploy applications on a larger scale. Together with ENGIE and We Drive Solar we are looking for sustainable, future-proof solutions in the field of payment, energy and mobility. The Rotterdam region will reap the benefits of this.
