Allego’s electric vehicle (EV) charging network has further expanded to include its latest ultra-rapid charging hub at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes.
The new hub is made up of six charge points fed by three dual-socket 300kW chargers, allowing visitors to the stadium, as well as passing traffic, the ability to charge their EVs in under 15 minutes.
Designed with inclusivity in mind, Allego's ultra-rapid EV charging hub features lower payment screens and wider parking bays, ensuring ease of use for all drivers.
“We are proud to have worked with Stadium MK to deliver Allego’s first ultra-fast charging hub in the UK,” commented Paz Sharma, Managing Director at Allego UK.
“This is an important step in our future plans and a vital new piece of infrastructure to support the city’s and the Stadium’s green ambitions.
“The new charge points can offer up to an 80% charge in as little as 15 minutes, providing a huge boost to electric-vehicle drivers on the move.
“Along with being ultra-fast, our charge points are flexible and fair to all users – that’s why charging is open to all car types and models with no subscription fees or connection costs, just a simple tap of a credit or debit card, as well as 280 EV charge cards.“
Allego, which has more than 130 charging devices across the UK, is a Zapmap Live Data partner. This means you can see the live status of the network's charge points via the Zapmap app or web map while en route to your preferred charging location.
“We are delighted to welcome Allego’s new ultra-fast EV charging hub to our Stadium MK site,” said Pete Winkelman, Chairman of Milton Keynes Dons Football Club.
“As part of our Stadium MK Net-Zero strategy, we are constantly striving to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone.
“Stadium MK was built with accessibility in mind, and we are proud that Allego’s new charging hub is uniquely designed and configured to be fully accessible to all users, including wheelchair users.”
*Please note, the term 'ultra-fast' refers to 100 kW+ charging devices, generally termed 'ultra-rapid' in the UK.
