LIEGE, Belgium, February 27, 2023 – The Groupe Sante CHC, a leading healthcare group in Belgium, today signed a 10-year contract with Blue Corner for the installation and management of EV Chargers at 15 CHC healthcare centres in the Province of Liege, Belgium.

“Healthcare organizations are major employers and community leaders that are committed to public wellbeing and are often early adopters of employer best practices.” Olivier Van Schap, Managing Director Blue Corner said. “Climate change poses a significant threat to human health, but workplace EV charging infrastructure at healthcare industry leaders like The Groupe Sante CHC are helping employees, and visitors reduce emissions and improve global health. We are proud to be investing for CHC Group and make contributions to the health of their local communities.”

Alain Javaux, CEO of the Groupe Santé CHC said: “Blue Corner and the Groupe Santé CHC have joined forces to bring transformational technologies to our patients and our staff. We have a long history of excellence in healthcare innovation, and we continue to build on that legacy every day as we develop and deliver solutions that help patients and those who provide their care.” “These emissions reductions are particularly important for hospitals, as air quality issues are location specific, and reducing the tailpipe emissions of commuting employees, patients, and guests directly results in better local air quality.”

Blue Corner will make the initial investment to help put 62 EQ200 EV chargers in place at 15 locations in 2023, with 20 EQ200 chargers in place at their flagship Clinique CHC du MontLégia in Liège. Blue Corner will equally provide training and other logistical and maintenance services that will support the long-term availability of its EV charging points at the Groupe Santé CHC.

In the Blue Corner owner-operator model, the third-party real estate owner works with Blink, who then installs and operates the charging infrastructure at the owner’s site. The site host is not responsible for the EV charging station maintenance, utility coordination, or other operational costs. The Blue Corner owner-operator model allows businesses to do what they do best and not worry about unforeseen factors that come with operating an EV charger while still being able to offer EV charging at their location. Further, site hosts who partner with Blue Corner, using our owner-operator models, limit their financial risks.
