Osprey opens two fast charging hubs in England
British charge point operator Osprey Charging has opened what it says is the largest ultra-rapid EV charging hub in the South West of England. The company has also opened a charging hub in Essex.
The 16-bay charging station is located at Salmon’s Leap, Buckfastleigh, on the A38 Devon Expressway. The site boasts 16 chargers, each capable of 300kW. Although the company has not mentioned a supplier of the chargers in its release, its press photos show Kempower chargers, and Osprey is also known to use Tritium chargers.
The company says its flagship 1.6-acre site is already open and will be able to serve high numbers of seasonal traffic to drivers heading to the English holiday destination of Devon this summer. Needless to say, the site will also provide charging for local residents and businesses.
The station at Salmon’s Leap marks Osprey’s first land acquisition. The existing car park on the site was re-designed to charge electric cars, with two extra-long bays for towing vehicles and extra-wide bays for full disabled access. Earlier this year, the company signalled its inclusive approach with artwork displayed on its chargers to celebrate Autism Week.
Elsewhere in England, Osprey Charging has also opened an ultra-rapid charging hub at The Halfway House on the A127 in Essex. The station is located just off the M25 and features six high-powered EV chargers.
The British charging provider has been busy this year, last month announcing cooperation with family brewer and pub company Wells & Co with their first 23 rapid electric vehicle charging points at seven of their sites in the UK. Also, last month, the company formed a lobby group called ChargeUK with 17 other charging providers.
