Osprey Charging Network has installed the first Tritium RTM75 rapid chargers in Europe at a new Starbucks in Gosport.
The Tritium RTM75 units, which provide up to 75kW of charge to an EV, were installed by Osprey in partnership with Harkalm, at the site operated by 23.5 Degrees Ltd.
Osprey Charging, which has agreements to install more than 400 chargepoints across 200 locations, will use a mix of Tritium’s DC units at future sites, ranging from 75kW to 350kW.
The RTM75 charger power can be increased from 25kW to 50kW and 75kW, providing customers with the flexibility to easily upgrade the charger as site needs change and empower them to better serve the new wave of EVs coming to the market with higher voltages.
According to Tritium, the modular design of the RTM75 means high uptime for the customers and a faster return on investment for operators. The RTM75 also adds convenience, providing options for 6m (20ft) cables with integrated cable management, ensuring safe and sustainable charging environments.
Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging said: “Osprey’s mission is to deliver the very best charging experience for the ever-growing number of EV drivers on UK’s roads. Tritium are an excellent partner for this mission.”
Kevin Pugh, Tritium UK Country Manager, added: “Tritium is thrilled to launch the first RTM75 in the UK, which we are justifiably proud of. We are excited for this next phase of advanced EV charging technology, with improved user interface.
“This convenient customer charging experience has been a key criteria for Osprey as a leading network operator.”
