Kiewit Engineering Group, Inc. joins forces with LilyPad EV to meet the growing demand for electric vehicle charging stations
OMAHA, NEB., July 11, 2018 – Kiewit Engineering Group, Inc. has joined forces with LilyPad EV to meet the growing demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Through a new partnership, the two companies offer comprehensive EV charging solutions that include planning, engineering, construction, procurement and installation.
“As more electric vehicles hit the roads every day, ever larger EV charging infrastructure projects are being deployed to meet the demand,” adds Larry Kinder, CEO of LilyPad EV. “These larger projects require deep expertise in planning, procurement, and installation of charging stations and the proven ability to deploy large infrastructure projects across the U.S.”
EV charging stations continue to expand from small-scale systems to the installation of hundreds or thousands of stations across wide geographic areas within urban, suburban and rural areas as well as on highway corridors. This evolution creates new challenges for cities, counties, states, electric utilities and corporate fleets that need EV charging infrastructure deployed to supply electric energy for recharging vehicles.
“The shifts in the EV market are rapid and dynamic as a result of quickly declining battery prices and an influx of investment through utilities, states, and private entities,” said Sam Scupham, vice president of emerging markets at Kiewit Engineering Group Inc. “Our clients are expecting an experienced contractor who brings the dependability of a full turnkey approach which equates to lower costs and high quality installations.”
The partnership combines an unparalleled capability to plan, design, implement, and manage large complex deployments. To date, LilyPad EV has deployed more than 2,500 charging station port across the U.S. and Kiewit has more than 130 years of construction experience on large infrastructure projects.
Kiewit is one of North America’s largest and most respected construction and engineering organizations. With its roots dating back to 1884, the employee-owned organization operates through a network of subsidiaries in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Kiewit offers construction and engineering services in a variety of markets including transportation; oil, gas and chemical; power; building; water/wastewater; industrial; and mining.
