Eight high-powered electric vehicle (EV) charge points have been installed at the Brewpoint brewery, located just off the A6, providing convenient charging for local residents, businesses and visitors.
The Osprey Charging charge points can each deliver up to 300kW and are managed with load balancing technology, which optimises grid connections and allows power to be distributed based on vehicle demand.
Depending on the capacity of the EV on charge, 100 miles of range can be added in as little as 15-20 minutes using a 300kW charge point.
“We’re delighted to launch this flagship charging location with Wells & Co that brings the latest in rapid charging technology to Bedfordshire,” said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging.
“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.
“Osprey now has over 800 charge points installed across the UK, each carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability and made to the latest and highest standards.
“This new charging site at Wells & Co’s Brewpoint brewery in Bedford is a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
The Osprey charge points are easy to use and designed with simple payment options for drivers, including contactless and via Zap-Pay, a simple payment solution enabling you to search for charge points, plan your route, and pay for EV charging all in one app.
“ We are thrilled to offer amarket-leading, reliable EV charging experience at our Brewpoint brewery and across our estate,” said Nick Wells, Head of Estates, Wells & Co.
“The demand for rapid charging points continues to increase and Osprey is helping us deliver this important service at our pubs.
“This new hub is a fantastic addition for our customers as well as Bedfordshire residents and businesses, and we look forward to working with Osprey on many more locations in future.
“We consider this to be a critical part of our sustainability agenda and look forward to welcoming EV drivers to enjoy a coffee or meal at Brewpoint whilst they wait to charge.”
