UK charging solution provider ChargePoint Services (no relation to the US company ChargePoint) has partnered with gas station operator the Motor Fuel Group (MFG) to roll out a network of rapid chargers that it says will be the biggest non-motorway rapid charging network in the UK.
Over 14 new tri-connector rapid chargers have already been installed at MFG retail fuel stations (“forecourts” to our British friends). A total of 60 more are to be installed by the end of the first quarter. The new chargers provide 50 kW charging, and are connected to ChargePoint Services’ GeniePoint Network, which monitors them to provide maximum uptime.
“Our GeniePoint Network is the fastest growing reliable Rapid Charger network in the UK,” said Alex Bamberg, Managing Director of ChargePoint Services. “From commuters to taxi drivers and fleet operators, at key forecourt locations ChargePoint Services and MFG are providing a new critical service supporting the change to electric transport.”
“Our forecourt development programme includes the installation of some 200 EV charging points by the end of 2018,” said MFG COO Jeremy Clarke. “The programme is now building up momentum and we look forward to giving our customers increased access to this important new fuel.”
