BP Chargemaster has won a contract, worth up to £21m, to supply Police Scotland’s electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.
According to the fuel company, the deal is the biggest ever of its kind in the UK, and will see more than 1,000 charging points installed at 265 sites across Scotland, including 35 120kW ultra-fast chargers.
It is the second countrywide public sector fleet contract awarded to BP Chargemaster in Scotland, following the start of a charging infrastructure programme for the Scottish Ambulance Service – in partnership with WGM Engineering – with 35 sites completed and another 34 sites now underway.
Matteo de Renzi, CEO of BP Chargemaster, said: “We are incredibly proud to be able to support Police Scotland through this landmark contract – the largest of its kind ever awarded in the UK – as they transition their fleet and contribute to the Scottish Government’s 2045 net zero target.”
The deal makes Police Scotland one of the first fleets in the UK to introduce this level of charging technology and Deputy Chief Constable Will Kerr said: “Police Scotland’s fleet strategy aims to have the UK’s first ultra-low emission blue light fleet by 2030. This substantial contract marks a major step towards that goal by making ULEVs accessible to more of our officers and staff.”
