Everyone who has travelled the sea-to-sky corridor in British Columbia knows how beautiful the drive is. Overall, the distance between Vancouver and Pemberton is only 153 km, but Tesla is building a network of charging stations that will make it a breeze for electric car owners to take advantage of the spectacular scenery. Fraserway Prekast Ltd. has been working with Alta Lake Electric Ltd. for the past few months on various projects in the Squamish/Pemberton area.
Tesla has a mission to create a network of charging stations across North America. They first installed supercharging stations on the Sea-to-Sky highway back in 2014.
In a statement, Tesla Motors said the Squamish station is “an integral component of Tesla’s West Coast route, allowing Model S owners to travel between San Diego, California and Whistler, B.C., for free. The network is now being expanded. And the Squamish station now has 6 Superchargers, available 24/7, up to 120kW.
Historically, these bases had to be poured on site, which was a costly and time consuming construction methodology. We have created a precast concrete base option for the charging stations. “Based on Fraserway Prekast’s ability to provide quality products at a competitive price within the industries fastest timeline we were given an opportunity to provide a precast option for the historically cast-in-place Tesla Charging Station bases in Squamish, B.C.”, reports Mike Savage, Technical Sales Manager.
We have completed our first installation of these bases in Squamish and are looking forward to continue supporting Alta Lake Electric Ltd. on many future Tesla charging station projects still to come.
