Osprey has opened its UK rapid charging network to EV drivers from mainland Europe under a major new roaming deal with GreenFlux.
As part of the roaming agreement, 90,000 drivers served by each of GreenFlux’s E-mobility service provider (EMSP) customers can seamlessly access all of Osprey’s 300 chargers, as well as future charge points, using their usual apps and charge cards.
The Osprey network, which includes charging stations co-located with food & beverage and retail venues in towns and along major motorways and A-roads, is set to double in 2022.
One GreenFlux customer already benefiting from the agreement is DKV Mobility, a full-service E-mobility service provider for commercial vehicle fleets across Europe.
Dora Clarke, Head of Marketing & Communications at Osprey said, “One of Osprey’s core values is inclusivity for all drivers, and part of the way we achieve this is through being an open-access network.
“We believe by facilitating roaming with like-minded partners such as GreenFlux we can play a leading role in the electrification of transport – by giving fleet operators, companies who cross borders, and long-distance drivers, a charge point network they can rely on away from home.
“Opening up our charging points to European drivers on this scale with GreenFlux is a UK-first and we’re proud to be doing it.”
Dan Pezim, Product Manager Billing & Roaming at GreenFlux added, “The partnership with Osprey is the latest in a series of international connections, and an important step towards increasing our roaming coverage in the UK.
“With this agreement, we enhance the value provided to our platform customers, and help make EV charging more convenient for drivers.”
