Allego joins the Vinci Autoroutes network in France

French motorway management company Vinci Autoroutes has opened four fast-charging parks built and operated by Allego. Each location offers CCS fast chargers and a CHAdeMO and AC charging point.

The new charge hubs have been installed in Les Brouzils and Chavagnes on both sides of the A83 just before Nantes, in Rouillé Pamproux Nord on the A10 just before Niort coming from Paris, and in Toulouse Sud Nord on the A61 coming from Narbonne.

Each of the four fast-charging parks has four Alpitronic Hypercharger HYC300s with up to 300 kW power and two connections each, as well as a 50 kW column in the form of a triple charger (CCS, CHAdeMO and Type 2) adding up to eleven charge points per location. Although the press release mentions canopies to provide shade, this is not a large roof in the style of a petrol station that spans the entire charge park. Instead, only small canopies shading the actual charging station can be seen in the photos; the vehicle stands outside.

Vinci Autoroutes targets equipping all service stations in its network with more than 1,500 charge points before the end of this year. “The four new hubs deployed by Allego on our network reinforce the charge-point infrastructure available to cater to e-drivers and ensure an easy transit for them, regardless of the distance to be covered,” says Raphaël Ventre, Head of Marketing and Services at Vinci Autoroutes. These are the first Allego charging points at Vinci Autoroutes; the operator will also be included in the ‘Ulys Electric Pass’, a Vinci proprietary payment solution for charging.

“It is critical to offer reliable and efficient EV charging solutions along these important traffic routes to ensure a smooth EV journey,” says Mathieu Lanéelle, Managing Director France at Allego. “With the number of EV drivers increasing significantly nowadays, a company such as Vinci finds a solid partner in Allego to facilitate their growing demand.”
