Ginger and Qi Managed Services have launched a multi-vehicle micromobility dock and charge station in Middlesbrough.
The solution allows for both e-bikes and e-scooters to be docked and charged in the same infrastructure.
The new station is part of the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) funded Innovate UK programme - Virgin Park & Charge (VPACH).
Ginger was the first company to launch a shared e-scooter trial in July 2020 in collaboration with Tees Valley Combined Authority and Middlesbrough Borough Council.
Brighton-based Qi is the company that distributes the Duckt Dock Lock Charge solution and the partners are aiming to roll out stations across Ginger’s trial zones in Hartlepool, Milton Keynes, Whitehaven, Chester, Scunthorpe and Great Yarmouth.
Qi is looking to establish a UK standard for micromobility parking and charging and is hoping to expand its services with more fixed and modular stations across the UK.
