BP announces purchase of 1,000 EV chargers from Tritium

BP has announced that it will be purchasing a whopping 1,000 chargers from Tritium as it aims to massively expand its EV charging network. 

The new chargers will be rolled out in the UK, as well as Australia and New Zealand, where they will bolster the BP Pulse charging network. While it has yet to be confirmed which chargers BP has ordered, Tritium offers a range of DC fast chargers, ranging from 50 kW up to 350 kW. 

It’s likely that some of the funding towards the new chargers will have come from BP’s recent commitment to spend £1 billion in the UK’s EV charging network. Upon making that announcement last month, BP noted that it would be tripling its fleet of EV chargers, and accelerating the roll-out of state-of-the-art 300kW and 150kW ultra-fast charging points.

Richard Bartlett, Senior Vice President, BP Pulse, noted, “I’m delighted that with this new global agreement with Tritium, it will help bp pulse deliver its mission to provide fast, reliable charging for EV drivers and to accelerate the roll-out of the charging infrastructure needed as the world transitions to decarbonise road transport.”

“The electrification of transportation is entering an incredible era when major companies like bp are providing critical support to transition the world to cleaner, more reliable transportation,” added Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. 

“We’re thrilled to be working with bp to create greater global access to fast charging in support of their mission to become a net zero company by 2050 and to be a leader in helping the world get to net zero emissions.”

BP isn’t the only oil company turning to Tritium to upgrade its EV charging network, however. Late last year, Shell also confirmed that it would be turning to Tritium to massively expand its EV charging network
