Global electric vehicle (EV) charger manufacturer Tritium and UK charging network evyve have entered into an agreement to make Tritium the network’s preferred charge point manufacturer.
The agreement, which includes an initial total order for 350 Tritium chargers, has seen evyve receive first deliveries of these chargers – 60 of which are now installed and operational.
evyve is planning to install thousands more chargers by the end of 2025, and 10,000 chargers by 2030. The company’s charging network is planned to consist of Tritium’s modular chargers, including the company’s award-winning 75kW charger and scalable 150kW charger.
“evyve is focused on providing a seamless and reliable customer experience and we are thrilled to be partnering with a leading fast charger manufacturer like Tritium, giving us the confidence to accelerate our plans to become one of UK’s leading charge point service providers,” said James Moat, CEO of evyve.
“Due to its compact design and modularity, Tritium’s innovative fast charger technology has enabled us to roll out our network across multiple locations quickly and efficiently, providing us with the foundation to support the UK’s transition to electric vehicles today and 20 years from now.”
evyve has stated that it intends to become the largest destination and en-route charging network in the UK, with ambitious growth plans to own and operate 10,000 EV charging points by 2030.
The company continues to build a customer network consisting of retail parks owned by regeneration business Peel L&P and hospitality providers such as Greene King, a leading UK pub retailer and brewer operating over 2,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels across England, Wales and Scotland.
“With the number of registered battery-electric cars in the UK growing by more than 40% in 2022, it’s more important than ever that drivers have access to fast and reliable charging technology to ensure a convenient driver experience and a seamless transition to e-mobility,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter.
“We’re proud to be the preferred fast charger provider for the evyve charging network, and we look forward to helping them accomplish their goal to become the largest destination and en-route charging network in the UK.
“For Tritium, this announcement is a reflection of an increasing number of conversations with customers looking to address anticipated multi-year demand and secure product availability beyond just the next 12 months.”
