FLO, a subsidiary owned by AddEnergie, is pleased to announce their largest collaboration. Hydro-Quebec has recently chosen FLO to supply the Electric Circuit up to 7,500 Level-2 chargers between 2022-2026. This will cement the strong relationship and make this FLO’s largest contract since its inception.
Louis Tremblay (FLO’s President and CEO) said, “We’re delighted to have been chosen once again as partners to Electric Circuit in the latest tender. FLO chargers are highly regarded in North America as being extremely reliable, durable, and robust. FLO and Hydro-Quebec have been working together for almost a decade to electrify Quebec. They also expanded the EV charging infrastructure. This has helped to improve accessibility and ensure that drivers have reliable charging experiences. FLO’s latest win is a vote for confidence and we look forward to offering our continued support for Hydro-Quebec’s efforts to accelerate the electrification of transport, not just for the next ten years, but for many years to come.”
Since 2013, the two Quebec-based EV charging companies have collaborated. Hydro-Quebec issued six calls for proposals to FLO since then. FLO has provided Hydro-Quebec with approximately 4,500 EV charging stations across Quebec. FLO also supplied approximately 3,800 Level-2 Chargers and 700 Level 3 (DC), chargers. FLO will install nearly twice as many Level 2-charging stations in the next four years, according to the latest contract.
France Lampron (Director – E-Mobility, Hydro-Quebec) said, “We are happy to expand our longstanding partnership with FLO, Quebec’s plan for electrifying its community is centered on providing thousands more charging stations to visitors and Quebeckers. As a clean energy transition leader, Hydro-Quebec is very proud of this major leap in the right direction towards making our community cleaner and transportation more environmental-friendly.”
FLO will supply 7,500 Level 2 chargers under the new contract. 3,000 will be curbside chargers for the public, while 2,000 will be for Hydro-Quebec’s fleet. 2,500 will be for other uses such as businesses, and municipalities and 2,500 will be for Hydro-Quebec’s fleet.
