Rapid EV charging site opens in Nottinghamshire

13 July 2023 #News

Osprey Charging has increased access to public charging around Nottingham with eight high-powered EV chargers installed at a popular local pub and restaurant located on the city’s ring road.

The hub, which has now opened at the Gamston Lock on the south east outskirts of Nottingham, is the latest location built with long-term partner Marston’s, for which Osprey has installed and now operates rapid charge points at more than 150 locations.

These 300kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV currently on the market and can typically add 100 miles of range in 10 to 25 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery.

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

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

Marston’s, the landlord for the site, benefits from a future-proofed car park and being able to attract more EV drivers as customers.

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 site at the Gamston Lock pub and restaurant near Nottingham is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
