Yurika showcases the best of its EV equipment

The smart transport sector is surging forward. With so much new technology and information available, knowing where to start can be daunting. Yurika’s recent EV Supply Equipment Showcase provided the industry an opportunity to get up close with the latest Siemens charging equipment and Yurika’s EV infrastructure specialists.

Yurika is part of Energy Queensland Limited – the largest wholly government owned electricity company in Australia.

The organisation has grown its national footprint rapidly, drawing upon more than 100 years of experience across the Energy Queensland Group in generation, transmission and distribution power systems across Queensland.  

Yurika offers a range of EV services that include public charging infrastructure to intelligent electric depot charging for businesses, government and transit operators.

Through its partnership with Siemens, Yurika says it has the largest and most diverse range of EV charging stock in Australia, supplying chargers for any scale car, bus or truck fleet.

Yurika energy supplies manager Troy Sampson says the Brisbane showcase proved there is plenty of interest when it comes to going electric.

“We’re seeing interest from all sectors, including the bus and coach industry,” Sampson told ABC. “But while a lot of businesses want to transition to green energy and electric vehicles, there are some complex business challenges to overcome.


“Our customers are finding value in partnering with Yurika because we can help you get started and work with you at every stage, from concept to completion and beyond.”

Sampson says Yurika’s expertise in connecting to networks and electrical infrastructure solutions means it can do much more than just supply products. Yurika can tailor a complete turnkey solution from site assessments right through to design, equipment supply, installation, operation, maintenance and data insights.

“When a bus or coach depot wants to transition to an electric fleet, Yurika helps to deliver that in the most energy efficient, cost efficient and sustainable way,” he says.

Transitioning a fleet to electric starts with a site assessment, where Yurika looks at what’s possible at a depot. As part of a desktop analysis, current energy use and renewable energy options including solar generation, battery storage systems and time management for EV charging options are all explored.

Yurika then completes an electric design and energy financial analysis before installing the equipment. Sampson says ongoing operation and maintenance services are also available for  customers.

“We provide several options for customers when it comes to metering or requests requiring greater levels of electric vehicle digital enablement,” Sampson says.

“This includes using Internet of Things (IoT) devices and new connectivity methods like 5G and mobile broadband connections to enhance the depot’s systems.”
