Osprey Charging has announced a partnership with East of England Co-op, the largest independent retailer operating in the East of England.

The initial phase of this collaboration has seen the launch of two ultra-rapid charge points at East of England Co-op Burnham-on-Crouch, with a further seven sites to follow over coming months. 

The 150kW charge points are dual charging meaning that two electric vehicles (EVs) can charge simultaneously, they are compatible with every EV on the market today and typically add 100 miles of range in around 15 minutes.

The charge points are easy to use and designed with simple payment for all drivers, accepting Zap-Pay, contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, as well as the Osprey App and RFID card payments.

Zap-Pay is the simple way to pay for charging within the Zapmap app. Select the charger you'd like to use within the app (a helpful Zap-Pay will pop up in a banner) and start your charging session at the press of a button. You can check on the status of your charge at any time to see the estimated cost and the charge time remaining.

"We are thrilled to partner with Osprey to provide more electric vehicle charging stations at our stores. We are dedicated to helping our customers and communities to move over to electric vehicles and with our industry partners we are reviewing all our sites for suitability for EV charging,” said Steven Fendley, Building and Environmental Compliance Manager at East of England Co-op.

“The new rapid-charging points are easy to use and offer customers a convenient opportunity to charge their vehicle while doing their shopping, or alternatively pick up a drink and something to eat whilst getting a needed charge.”

Osprey share a live data partnership with Zapmap, enabling users of the Zapmap app and web map to access the live status and availability of Osprey charge points at any time, making planning for charging even easier.

“We are excited to launch this partnership with East of England Co-op and contribute to the continued growth of reliable EV infrastructure across the UK,” said Andrew Nosworthy, Commercial Director at Osprey Charging. 

“The locations in this venture will significantly improve access to public charging in the region, with the new Burnham-on-Crouch site doubling the number of rapid chargers in the Maldon District. Together with East of England Co-op, we look forward to making a lasting impact on the UK’s EV network.”

Osprey charging locations are consistently scored highly for safety and accessibility by independent inspection body ChargeSafe, and the network was once again rated in the UK Top 3 for customer satisfaction in 2023 by the annual Zapmap EV Driver Survey.
