Ionity unveils high-power EV charging site in Northern Ireland


Ionity has opened its new charging hub at Toome motorway service station, Northern Ireland, which includes six new change points provide charging at up to 350kW.

The site, located just off the A6 and supported by NIE Networks, will be joined by further charge points in Northern Ireland in the future depending on demand, including The Kennedy Centre in Belfast.

Due to a live data partnership with Zapmap, users of the Zapmap app and web map can see real-time availability and status information of Ionity charge points, making planning for charging stops simpler.

Last September, Ionity installed six new ultra-rapid chargers at Gateshead’s Metrocentre – the first time the charge point operator partnered with a retail site in the UK.

Andreas Atkins, Ionity’s Country Manager of UK and Ireland said: “Opening our first site in Northern Ireland is an exciting nod to our investment in the country to help decarbonise mobility and make EV charging accessible to everyone visiting or living in Northern Ireland.

“We wanted to partner with a site that already had amenities available to customers, so they can charge their EV’s whilst grabbing a bite to eat or a coffee.”

Ian Craig, Major Projects Stakeholder Lead at NIE Networks said, “NIE Networks is delighted to play our part in helping Northern Ireland move towards Net Zero by connecting the first high powered EV Charging site in Toome.

“We are willing and ready to support the move towards greener energy and drive real noticeable change for local people.”
