Osprey Charging to build its largest EV charging hub in Scotland


Osprey Charging has announced plans to build a 16-charger hub in Paisley,  which when completed will be the largest public ultra-rapid charging facility in Scotland.

The charge point operator has completed the purchase of a freehold near the Phoenix Retail Park in Paisley, and planning permission has been granted to install the 300kW public charge points.

It will be situated just off the A737, a short drive from the M8 motorway, and close to a Showcase Cinema and McDonald’s restaurant.

This is the second time Osprey Charging has completed the purchase of a freehold site, following the Salmon’s Leap hub in Devon, which opened last year.

Osprey expects to announce further site acquisitions throughout the summer.

Its network of public EV chargers continues to grow rapidly, and now encompasses more than 1,000 rapid and ultra-rapid chargers in key urban and rural locations across the UK.

Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging, said, “The purchase of freehold sites is an important strategy for Osprey, as it enables us to build larger public charging locations with greater flexibility over their design.

“This hub will be crucial in supporting the uptake of EVs in Scotland as well as in meeting growing demand for reliable, accessible and high-quality EV charging across the UK.

“In 2024, we have successfully delivered nine high-powered hubs across various UK locations, and the new Paisley hub opposite the Phoenix Retail Park will be another significant milestone in our rapidly expanding network.

“As the year progresses, our goal is to complete 30 hubs, which will be a monumental stride not only in the advancement of our network but also in fortifying the broader public EV charging infrastructure.”
