ACCIONA, the company responsible for managing Madrid’s Infanta Sofía University Hospital, has installed three electric vehicle charging points at the centre. They are available to all hospital employees and users free of charge.
The procedure is very simple - the driver obtains a card from the car park control point on level -1 of the hospital. There is a €6 deposit for the card that is reimbursed once it card is returned. Using the card, the driver follows the simple instructions displayed at each position to begin charging.
The charging types allowed are three-phase 63 A (up to 43 kw) and single-phase 70 A. These points cover nearly all electric vehicles on the market. Users must have the adapter recommended by their vehicle manufacturer for this type of station.
The Infanta Sofía Hospital is managed under a public-private partnership agreement between the Madrid Health Service, which manages the healthcare side, and ACCIONA CONCESSIONS, which is responsible for managing the infrastructure and the non-health related services, known as “grey coat” services. ACCIONA Service provides the cleaning, maintenance and other services at the hospital.
ACCIONA Construction was the company chosen to build the hospital complex, which is BREEAM certified (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) due to its planning and strategies that are more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable.
This initiative is part of ACCIONA’s commitment to undertaking projects that actively contribute to sustainability and respect for the environment.
