(Oilandgaspress) London Mayor inaugurates Volta Trucks’ Hub

Volta Trucks, the leading and disruptive all-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer and services provider, has officially opened its Truck as Service Hub in Tottenham, London.

The Truck as a Service Hub was officially opened today by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, Tottenham MP Rt. Hon. David Lammy, alongside policymakers, industry leaders and key customers and stakeholders.

Located on White Hart Lane in Tottenham, North London, the cutting-edge facility is the first to open in the UK and is designed to be the main destination for routine servicing and maintenance of vehicles in the London area. The innovative Hub will provide everything a fleet operator needs to support their seamless transition to electric trucks, also hosting admin offices, a Volta Trucks Academy Training centre and a customer call centre that will provide 24/7 assistance and technical support.

Together with Engineering, Software and Development facilities in the Midlands, and the company’s Reading-based commercial operations, the opening of the London Hub brings Volta Trucks’ own UK organisation to over 600 highly skilled employees.

The Mayor expressed his support for Volta Trucks’ pioneering activity, praising the company for its commitment to sustainability and accelerating the industry’s transition towards electrification.The Volta Trucks London Hub recently underwent a BREEAM assessment which is used to measure the sustainability performance of buildings across a range of design and operational areas. The Hub was deemed ‘Excellent’ in its overall asset performance score. The site is fitted with a photovoltaic system on the roof converting sunlight into energy for the site and a passive solar wall optimising the heating and ventilation of the building. This achievement reinforces Volta Trucks’ commitment to sustainability and its environmental footprint.

Complementing the London Hub is a network of third-party Certified Service Partners. Sapphire Vehicle Solutions, the company’s first UK partner, has a comprehensive service and maintenance network across the UK, designed around Volta Trucks customers’ requirements. They also use a fleet of mobile servicing units linked to each location, to maximise the uptime of customers’ vehicles.
