Osprey Charging has installed eight high-powered EV chargers at the Barrhead Retail Park in East Renfrewshire.

The 300kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can add 100 miles of range in 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery.

Drivers can charge their EVs while using the nearby Burger King, Starbucks, or Lidl.

The chargers are designed with simple payment for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Furthermore, Osprey’s in-house software, Osprey Iris, enables EV roaming.

Osprey has funded this installation, operation and oversees maintenance of the chargers which are all supplied with renewable energy.

London & Scottish Investments, the landlord for the hub, benefits from a future-proofed car park and being able to attract more EV drivers as customers.

This installation is expected to encourage EV uptake in the area, bolstering the UK’s national charging infrastructure as well as improving local air quality, reducing noise pollution and supporting local decarbonisation efforts.

Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging said, “The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands.

“Each of our new locations is carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability of chargers, working to the latest and highest standards.

“This new charging hub at the Barrhead Retail Park is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
