Osprey Charging has revealed that it has installed as many rapid chargers in the first quarter of this year as it did during the whole of 2022 as it looks to develop its UK-wide EV charging network.
From January to March this year, 142 new rapid Osprey EV charging stations went live in 10 weeks, equalling the number of charge points installed throughout 2022. The new figures refer to live charge points that are open for public use,
Another 50 chargers will be installed and made live in April.
Osprey has a focus on meeting growing charging demand through 4+ charger hubs that maximise availability and speed.
The network’s load-balancing hubs, first introduced to the UK in 2021, dynamically distribute available power in real time to cars as they need it, which means more charge points can be installed on a smaller grid connection than a traditional set up and no power is wasted.
Ian Johnston, the CEO of Osprey Charging Network said, “I’m delighted that the deployment of Osprey’s national infrastructure of EV charging stations is at full speed, with the whole team working tirelessly to bring new chargers live at this unprecedented rate.
“Looking ahead, we are set to continue this pace of roll-out and deliver on our business plan of achieving four times as many chargers in 2023 than we did in 2022.
“Now that we have established a broad network our focus is to continue to expand but also provide a high quality of experience for EV drivers all over the country. Over the next two years we will invest over £100million expanding our nationwide public charging network, establishing the much-needed national infrastructure that drivers can trust and rely on.”
