bp pulse and APCOA Parking Group have partnered to open more than 100 EV fast charging hubs across Europe.
Under the agreement, bp pulse plans to install ultra-fast charging at APCOA car parks in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK over the next three years to help expand its charging network in city centers. The project is part of APCOA’s plans to transform its car parks into Urban Hubs that will provide physical and digital infrastructure for mobility, logistics, EV charging and technology-based services.
The two companies aim to work together to provide a convenient customer journey through digital integration of the bp pulse and APCOA Connect app in the UK and APCOA Flow app in Europe. Registered users will be able to locate, access, book and pay for their charging and parking at the car park from their mobile phones, and the car park’s entry and exit barriers will open automatically as the vehicle approaches.
“This agreement will help us to build our EV charging network across Europe by offering customers the fastest and most convenient EV hub charging experience,” said Stefan von Dobschuetz, General Manager of bp pulse Europe.
APCOA’s CEO, Philippe Op de Beeck, said: “Working with bp pulse is another step to achieve our plan to deploy 1,000 fast charging stations through commercial partners in APCOA’s car parks. Doing so, we are providing customers added services in our locations and make a relevant contribution to the transformation of individual mobility.”
Two Urban Hubs in Berlin and Bremen in Germany are expected to open in the third quarter of 2023.
