Osprey Charging has announced its intention to purchase 125 new Wallbox Supernova DC rapid chargers to help it further expand its rapid charging network.
With more than 700 rapid EV chargers in place across the UK already, Osprey is one of the leading providers of rapid charging in the UK. However, it’s not resting on its laurels, and during the first three months of 2023, the firm installed more chargers than it had throughout the entirety of 2022.
The firm plans to continue its rapid growth, and its latest order of 125 new Wallbox Supernova DC rapid chargers is just the latest example of that. The company has a history of using an assortment of charging units to build its network, including those from Tritium, Raption and Kempower.
As part of its order with Wallbox, Osprey is also subscribing to the WBX care program, which offers preventative and corrective maintenance to the company’s fleet of Supernova chargers. That should help maintain the network’s exceptional reliability – which is reported to be consistently above 99%.
“We are excited to partner with Osprey to offer EV drivers across the UK access to a reliable DC charging network,” said Phil Bond, DC Key Account Manager UK+IE.
“Designed to fit into a wide variety of locations, the first 125 Supernova rapid chargers will be deployed in more than 15 locations across the UK.”
“Our partnership with Wallbox enables us to increase the number of rapid chargers we can easily install at locations with low-voltage connections,” said Lewis Gardiner, Head of Operations, Osprey Charging Network.
“Wallbox’s Supernova rapid charger meets our needs for power availability, ease of installation and maintenance, while offering the seamless experience we expect as standard for our customers.”
The first chargers installed as part of this collaboration recently went live at Towneley Garden Centre, Burnley.
