SLA_K Charging Pole

Promea’s Albert-Jan van Dijk met with Kees van Bergen on an e-mobility event in 2014. Impressed with Van Bergen’s ambitions, Promea suggested to redesign their charging poles to help the company build a better market position. As part of the kick off of the project we went as far as studying new regulations on calibration, security and installation of charging infrastructure in detail. The result was the creation of the slimmest dual charging pole to date, with a radical reduction on assembly and installation costs. Promea also designed a dedicated double cylinder lock, seamlessly matching the shape of the column. The elegant design in curved steel was a major step for the client into national and foreign markets for Ecotap (see also wall charger WG).

We didn’t want our new designs just to be good looking but also easier to assemble, to install and to maintain too. The result was all of that and more than we hoped for.

Our technology and our business model was already innovative at the time when we met designer Albert-Jan van Dijk. He helped us to take it from there and build further with the one thing that was missing: High quality industrial design and a visual identity of care and attention to detail. It was a crucial step towards growth and the strong market position we are in today.
