Opening of a new electric vehicle charging station was celebrated at the Split Airport. This is the first out of five electric car charging stations of Hrvatski Telekom opened in Split-Dalmatia County. Besides the Split Airport, the other charging stations are located in Park Hotel, Cornaro Hotel, City Center One and Miramare Aparthotel in Makarska.
HT recognized the initiative of Split-Dalmatia County within the concept of development of infrastructure for the increased use of electric cars.
“In this way, we are promoting eMobility and construction of the public infrastructure for e-vehicles. We want to connect the whole County and through the e-platform join the European network of charging stations. Boosted by subsidies of the Environment Protection Funds, an increasing number of Croatian citizens expresses their interest in purchase of electric cars. In order to respond to the growing interest and needs both of our citizens and those of tourists, Split-Dalmatia County decided to pursue this pilot activity,” said Split-Dalmatia County’s Zlatko Ževrnja.
Hrvatski Telekom, in collaboration with Split-Dalmatia County and project partners, enables free access to the charging stations in Split-Dalmatia County for all users of electric cars by 1 March 2016.
The list of locations of the charging stations, as well as detailed information on their use can be find at www.puni.hr. After the customer finds a currently available charging station at www.puni.hr and reaches it, at the info desk there, he/she can collect an identification RFID card and start using the service. If the customer wants it, he/she can send a prior request to email@example.com, and he/she will receive a personalized RFID card used for identification.
Hrvatski Telekom develops the ICT eco system which enables cutting-edge customer experience through the use of the advanced infrastructure for electric vehicles. So far, Hrvatski Telekom, together with its partners, opened nine charging stations in Rijeka, Kaštel Štafilić, Split and Makarska, within the scope of the e-mobility project. It also provides an active access to 25 publicly available charging stations in 10 Croatian cities.
“Besides the opening of the charging stations in Split, we intensively work on development of both charging station network and complete e-mobility eco system. In doing this, we collaborate with international partners, private investors, as well as representatives of local authorities, in order to ensure cutting edge customer experience based on a simple, reliable and funny approach to the publicly available network of electric car charging stations,” said Dino Novosel, Senior Corporate Strategy Expert responsible for the e-mobility project in HT.
