SEAM Group announced its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

In alignment with Fresno EOC's commitment to sustainable transportation solutions, the organization is taking a significant step to reduce Fresno's carbon footprint by transitioning its fleet to electric vehicles. This initiative will see Fresno EOC replace its fleet with 50 electric Class-A shuttles over five years. A 2.5-megawatt on-site solar generation and battery energy storage system will be installed to support the electric shuttles. SEAM Group, recognized for its proven platform that combines strategic advisory, custom training solutions, field inspection, and maintenance, will provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the project and will celebrate its groundbreaking on June 20, 2024.

SEAM Group engineers and renewable energy specialists are poised to play a critical role in the project's success. "We will leverage our expertise across the entire project lifecycle, providing comprehensive services that include strategic advisory support, design, engineering, and procurement of the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and solar battery storage systems, thorough site assessment and planning, and construction management," said Colin Duncan, SEAM Group CEO. "This comprehensive approach ensures a smooth transition for the Fresno EOC, addressing all aspects from strategic planning to the physical construction of the project."

A unique aspect of this project involves minimizing reliance on the grid during peak demand hours. SEAM Group's expertise will ensure seamless solar battery storage system integration, allowing the electric fleet to operate independently during these times.

"I applaud the Fresno EOC team for their vision of implementing on-site generation, battery storage, interconnection to the grid, and EV charging on a single site. It is encouraging to see lessons learned from years of design and installation applied to develop a first-class location," remarked Scott Moretz, SEAM Group COO.

"We are honored to serve as the EPC contractor for this significant project, partnering with Nuvve and Imperial Electric Services. Our combined expertise ensures a safe and efficient transition to an electrified fleet, empowering Fresno EOC to embrace renewable energy and reduce operational costs," said Simon Boyce, SEAM Group CRO.
