BP Pulse opens EV charging hub in Kettering

09 March 2023 #Other

BP Pulse has opened its fastest, most powerful and largest EV charging hub to date in North Northamptonshire.

The new hub in Kettering, built by The EV Network, has an installed capacity of three megawatts (MW) and features ten 300kW chargers, one of the fastest chargers available in the UK today.

With its high-power output, the hub can charge up to 20 vans simultaneously at 150kW, allowing each vehicle to gain up to 100 miles in about 15 minutes, depending on the type of EV – enough to power a journey from Kettering to London.

The hub is located at the intersection of the A14 and A43 near Kettering and is designed to meet the needs of the growing EV market, providing fast and convenient charging for drivers on the go.

BP Pulse has already established large scale hubs in Park Lane, London, and at Gatwick Airport, and a site is currently under construction in the West Midlands, which, when completed will contain 16 ultra-fast 300kW chargers capable of charging 32 EVs at any one time.

The company intends to open hundreds of additional charging hubs in other locations around the UK by the end of 2030.

Akira Kirton, vice president, BP Pulse UK, said: “It’s our largest and most powerful EV charging hub yet.

“At BP Pulse we believe the EV charging network the UK needs will be delivered through EV charging in the right location, at the right time, and at the right speed.”
