APCOA launches over 500 EV charging points across the UK including its first Ultra Rapid site with Tesla
APCOA opened its first UK Urban Mobility Hub to the public at St Catherine’s Walk Car Park in the Welsh town of Carmarthen. The Hub is now fully equipped with 5 22kW AC fast chargers and 12 V3 Tesla Superchargers, capable of delivering peak charge rates up to 250kW.
In addition to this we provide 460 22kW AC fast EV chargers across seven Network Rail stations: Welwyn Garden City, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Letchworth, Edinburgh and Reading. A planned 12 month roll out will increase the total number of fast EV charging points at Network Rail sites to 750 and APCOA’s customer focused capabilities mean that customers visiting these stations can pay for both their parking and EV charging in one transaction.
Through APCOA’s state of the art analytics software we continuously monitor on site availability and utilisation which will allow us to expand at these sites as required.
In Q2 2023 APCOA are looking to expand by a further 250 EV charge points, a combination of ultra rapids and fast EV charge-points including key locations such as Banstead, Bromley Civic Centre and Sheffield.
APCOA Regional Managing Director UK&I & Group ESG Director Kim Challis commented. ‘ As market leaders, we have a responsibility to drive sustainability targets within the industry and installing, managing, and analysing the impact of reliable charging points at these central locations makes a vital contribution to the environment and adds to the range of services that we offer to our customers across many sectors’.
