Fastned opens 13th charging hub in the UK
Fastned has launched its latest ultra-rapid charging hub in the UK. Based off the A183 on Parsons Road, the new Fastned hub in Washington comprises eight charging bays of up to 300 kW and will serve EV commuters to and from South Tyneside, as well as Sunderland.
The launch marks Fastned’s 13th charging hub in the UK and its 7th in the North-East of the nation. Last May, Fastned had opened their largest HPC park yet in Scotland, also using the same 300 kW DC charging stations. In the meantime, the Dutch company has clearly expanded their offer. The following month, Fastned then officially raised their targets. In October, Fastned then closed a financing round with €75 million, before the company then announced a new 400 kW charging station in December 2022.
“Our new Washington site, based just down the road from Nissan’s EV powerhouse, adds to the fantastic network of charging stations we have established in the area,” said Tom Hurst, UK country manager for Fastned, adding: “We look forward to welcoming drivers from Washington and beyond to our award-winning, unique electric vehicle charging experience that puts drivers at the centre.”
