FOR:EV rolling out 22 charging points in Scotland


EV charging infrastructure provider FOR:EV, is rolling out a further 22 rapid charging points at four retail sites across Scotland, which will deliver over a megawatt of power between them.

Installation of three dual charging points at Sainsbury’s Inverkip in Inverclyde and two dual charging points at Toolstation Montrose is now complete.

Work is also due to start at Tesco Express on Great Northern Road, Aberdeen and South Harbour Road retail park in Fraserburgh – both 3 dual charging points – in the coming months.

The rapid chargers at all four sites will charge a typical EV from 20% to 80% in 30 minutes.

These new sites, all run by Cedarwood Asset Management and David Samuel Asset Management, form part of Edinburgh-based FOR:EV’s plans to create a network of more than 1,700 accessible EV charging points at 600 public sites across the UK.

The plans focus on public ‘destination’ charging points, with FOR:EV keen to partner with single-site and multi-site landowners, as well as local authorities.

Paul Jenkins, director at Cedarwood Asset Management said, “After being introduced to FOR:EV by a mutual contact, I found the team excellent to work with, so agreeing deals with them on these four sites was an easy decision.  It’s great to see our first two sites complete and welcoming their first customers.”

Calum Wallace, FOR:EV’s Business Development Manager, said, “These four new hubs will bring our EV charging provision to more locations in the north-east, and to Inverclyde for the first time.

“We’re seeing a lot of interest from retail businesses and landowners just now, who are recognising that providing EV owners with the opportunity to charge while they shop will help them attract new customers.”
