A total of 28 new EV chargers have been installed at Chippenham Station, bringing the number of charging points across Network Rail’s key commuter stations to 500.

Car park operator APCOA and Network Rail have worked in partnership with their supply chain; Compleo, the EV charging technology provider, and AmcoGiffen, to install the 22kW eBOX professional chargers at the station’s Cocklebury Road car park which are now available to customers.

Chippenham station, which is centrally located in the town, is offering the EV chargers to rail passengers alongside shoppers and visitors to the nearby Wiltshire College.

The full end to end service is provided by APCOA, including a 24/7 UK based customer service centre, which provides remote operational support and manages customer enquiries.

Payment is via the EV auto pay facility provided via APCOA Connect, through which users can also pay for their parking.

Other stations that feature charging points include Reading, Letchworth, Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh and Welwyn Garden City.

Kim Challis, Regional Managing Director UK&I and Group ESG Director of APCOA said, “Sustainability and customer convenience are of vital importance to our all of our businesses, and we are delighted to work with Network Rail and Compleo to facilitate a straightforward and reliable EV and parking solution for local customers.”

Hamish Kiernan, Commercial Director, Property at Network Rail said, “Using our car parks and real estate to install and offer EV charging not only improves the experience for our customers and the wider community, it is also an integral part of our sustainability strategy and focus on reaching net-zero.”
