Cornerstone Technologies has been tapped by Parking Systems Limited to provide a one-stop electric vehicle (EV) solution for Admiralty Car Park under Wilson Parking, the largest car park management group in Hong Kong. It is the first large-scale smart EV charging area project of Wilson Parking.
Already, Cornerstone has designed and developed 13 EV chargers at the Admiralty Car Park, including 11 medium-charging and 2 fast-charging parking spaces, adopting Slate (7kW) and FlexiDC (30kW) chargers, which can be used by different brands of EVs.
“EV owners can easily enjoy quality charging services with the Group's mobile application and participate in charging schemes,” the company said in a statement. “We look forward to working closely with Wilson Parking in a continuous manner to further improve the layout of charging points and promote the popularity of EVs so as to contribute to the reduction of carbon footprint.”
The volume of EVs in Hong Kong has been growing in recent years. From January to October 2021, the city’s Transport Department registered more than 6,000 new EVs, a 30% increase over the same period in 2020.
To cater to growing demand, Cornerstone has installed chargers in shopping malls under various property management groups and car parks of government venues, possessing an extensive network of EV charging points, and currently has established over 1,300 charging points in Hong Kong.
The company will gradually move into commercial and residential buildings and shopping mall car parks in different regions.
