EB Charging has signed a £3 million agreement to deploy nearly 600 charging points at 80 Q-Park car parks in the UK and Ireland.
Installations are due to begin in July 2022 and work will include the modernisation of existing charging infrastructure with EB Charging’s hardware.
EB Charging will be responsible for the installation of the EV charging hardware and for the management of the charging provision, including a 24/7 customer support service to Q-Park EV customers.
Blink Charging acquired EB Charging in April, with the move marking the firm’s first entry into the UK.
The acquisition added more than 1,150 chargers, installed or committed for delivery, to Blink’s footprint and marks an important step in the company’s expansion, with Blink now present in more than 18 countries.
Alex Calnan, Managing Director of EB Charging said, “We are delighted to reach this historic agreement with Q-Park UK and Ireland. This ambitious project delivers substantial benefits to Q-Park’s customers and accelerates the electric charging points as the demand for charging increases.
“Both EB Charging and Blink look forward to working closely with the team at Q-Park, and together, help clean the air that we breathe as we provide for more electric vehicles.”
Adam Bidder, Managing Director of Q-Park UK and Ireland said: “The world is changing and we’re happy to contribute with our portfolio and operations to the new environment we are in.
“We already lead the way on electric vehicle charging in the private parking sector, even so we undertook a lengthy consultation process to ensure that we found the correct strategic partner to add value to our existing parking and charging proposition.”
