Seneca Companies’ Automotive & Commercial Division was hired to install EV (electric vehicle)
chargers at the Iowa 80 Truckstop, more commonly known as “World’s Largest Truckstop” in Walcott, Iowa. This project took place during the months of September 2020 through May 2021 and was grant funded.

The project scope consisted of installing two EV chargers, ordering and delivering the proper equipment and completing all necessary electrical work. In addition, our team replaced previously laid concrete and added bollards around the chargers, as well as installed electrical distribution panels and cabinets for the EV chargers.

Seneca was the prime contractor for this project and oversaw electrical and concrete subcontractors. Seneca’s stellar coordination and direction with these subcontractors led to a successful installation.

One of the setbacks Seneca encountered was a delay completing the install due to the electrical service install. However, due to efficient organization and establishing clear expectations, this delay was worked into the schedule and did not delay the overall project timeline.

The Iowa 80 Truckstop was very happy with the EV charger installation project completed by the Seneca Automotive and Commercial team.
