Gridserve, in partnership with Moto, has opened its latest EV charging hub at Thurrock featuring 350kW-capable chargers.
The new site at Moto Thurrock, on the eastern side of the M25 between junctions 30 and 31, includes 12 EV chargers powered by 100% net zero carbon energy from the company’s hybrid solar battery farms
Gridserve Electric Hubs have been designed to feature both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, accept contactless payment and provide real-time status updates to EV charging maps.
In partnership with Moto, Gridserve has also recently delivered four new High Power Electric Super Hubs at sites in Burton-in-Kendal, Exeter and Swansea.
Last month Gridserve also opened its Electric Forecourt in Norwich.
Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said, “We are committed to building a UK-wide charging network at a speed that will help give EV drivers the confidence they need to undertake any journey, irrespective of what electric vehicle they drive, and charge quickly, reliably and affordably.
“Thurrock is further proof that we’re building on our partnership with Moto and we’ll continue to deliver more High Power Electric Super Hubs throughout the year.”
Ken McMeikan, Moto chief executive, said, “At Moto, we are absolutely passionate about transforming the electric vehicle charging experience for drivers across the UK’s motorways.
“We are delighted with the progress that our partnership with Gridserve is making towards delivering a future of more sustainable motoring.
“As a business, Moto is currently on track to deliver above and beyond Government-set targets of six rapid chargers at each motorway service area by 2023.
“We have seen exceptional usage at our first Ultra-rapid hub at Rugby which opened last year and been thrilled with the hugely positive response from our EV driving customers.”
