Osprey expands charging network with new sites in Barnsley and Hull

Osprey Charging has expanded its nationwide electric vehicle charging network with new sites in Barnsley and Hull.

The charging network operator has increased access to public charging in Yorkshire with three high-powered EV chargers installed at the Wombwell Lane Retail Park in Barnsley, supporting local residents, businesses and visitors with reliable EV infrastructure.

The 75kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in around 35 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery. Situated on a retail park, the chargers are an ideal place to charge whilst popping for a bite to eat, doing some shopping or enjoying the on-site leisure facilities. The chargers are easy to use and designed with simple payment for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Osprey has also added three high-powered EV chargers at the Kingston Retail Park in Hull, too.

Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, said: “The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to Scottish Highlands. Each of our new locations is carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability of chargers, working to the latest and highest standards. This new charging site at the Kingston Retail Park in Hull is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”

As EV uptake increases across the country ahead of the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles, more and more of Yorkshire’s visitors will look for EV charging as standard. Osprey has funded this installation, operation and oversees maintenance of the chargers which are all supplied with renewable energy. Ediston, the landlord for the site, benefits from a future-proofed car park and being able to attract more EV drivers as customers.

Osprey charging locations are consistently scored highly for safety and accessibility by independent inspection body ChargeSafe, and Osprey is in the Top 3 UK Chargepoint Network Operators for both personal safety and accessibility.
