Osprey opens two rapid EV charging sites in Bridgend

Osprey Charging has increased access to public charging in Hull with three high-powered EV chargers installed at the Willerby Business Park.

The 75kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in just 35 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery. Situated in the business park, the chargers are an ideal place to charge while grabbing a bite to eat from either the Costa or Burger King on the site. 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.

Access to charging is one of the biggest barriers to EV adoption and the installation is expected to encourage EV uptake in the area, bolstering the UK’s national charging infrastructure as well as improving local air quality, reducing noise pollution and supporting local decarbonisation efforts.

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 Willerby Business Park in Hull is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”

This week, Osprey has also increased access to public charging in Bridgend with high-powered EV chargers installed at two pubs, the Cherry Laurel (2 chargers) and Llangewydd Arms (3 chargers), supporting local residents, businesses and visitors with reliable EV infrastructure.
