Hull and Bridgend are the latest locations to receive new Osprey rapid electric vehicle charge points as part of the operator’s ambitious plans to have more than 1,000 rapid chargers in operation by the end of 2023.
In Bridgend, the new public charging sites are at two Marston’s Brewery pubs: the Cherry Laurel (two chargers) and Llangewydd Arms (three chargers). Three similar devices have been installed at Willerby Business Park in Hull (pictured).
The 75kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in just 35 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery.
The chargers can accept contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.
Osprey is one of the UK’s largest EV charging networks and has been ranked in the top 5 UK networks for customer satisfaction by Zap-Map for three years running.
Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, said: “The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to Scottish Highlands. Each of our new locations is carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability of chargers, working to the latest and highest standards.”
