BP Chargemaster installs first of 400 150 kW chargers

BP Chargemaster, BP’s UK-based charging network subsidiary, has powered up its first 150 kW ultra-fast charger at a BP retail site. The charger is the first in a planned network of ultra-fast chargers across the UK.

BP plans to roll out 400 ultra-fast chargers at BP sites across the UK by the end of 2021, in tandem with new vehicle models arriving on the market that will be capable of ultra-fast charging.

BP acquired Chargemaster in 2018 and today it operates Polar, a UK-based charging network with more than 7,000 public charge points. BP Chargemaster also recently entered into an agreement with DiDi to develop EV charging infrastructure in China.

BP Chargemaster COO David Newton said, “BP’s forecourts are ideal locations for this technology, which will provide an expected dwell time of 10-12 minutes, not dissimilar from the average of around 7 minutes spent by drivers of petrol and diesel cars on a forecourt today.”
