Osprey Charging is set to expand its charging network in the UK with more than 250 Tritium rapid chargers across 100 locations.
Aimed at increasing access to rapid and reliable charging infrastructure in car parks, retail locations and along major transit routes, the chargers are expected to be added to 100 new charging destinations, growing Osprey’s network by over 50%.
The announcement follows Osprey’s installation of its first RTM75 charger, and followed with a December 2021 announcement expanding the Osprey network with 100 Tritium chargers.
Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO, said: “It’s really encouraging to see the UK government proactively driving the transition to electric transportation in such a strategic manner through their Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, creating and supporting up to 250,000 green jobs. In 2021, approximately 190,727 new electric vehicles were sold in the UK, a staggering increase of 76% compared to 2020, setting a new record for the country and a strong indicator of the UK’s technology switch.
“We’re delighted to strengthen our relationship and key partnership with Osprey to support their infrastructure coverage goals and increase access to rapid charging, enabling drivers to transition to EVs with a fast, reliable and convenient charging experience.”
“As an independent charge point operator, we have the freedom to work with the very best hardware companies so that we can provide the very best experience for our customers,” said Ian Johnston, Osprey CEO.
“We have already installed Tritium rapid chargers at many of our most popular locations, including sites with improved accessibility and at our South London high-power charging hub. We are excited to add the dynamic load-balancing PKM chargers to our rapidly expanding UK network, optimising charger output across a number of cars plugged in simultaneously and ultimately improving driver experience. Tritium is an instrumental partner in helping Osprey deliver on our goal of creating a high quality, inclusive, reliable charging network that’s worry free and accessible for all.”
