Euro Garages has reiterated its commitment to serving energy efficient vehicles after confirming the installation of rapid charging units at two of its sites in Scotland.
One of the fastest growing service station forecourt operators, Euro Garages has approximately 360 sites throughout the UK and the installation of rapid charging units at its sites at Lomondgate Services and Caird Park service station means the company has joined the growing ChargePlace Scotland network.
The charging units have been fitted by eVolt UK and the version of the charging units can charge two vehicles at the same time, in the space of half an hour.
Euro Garages will benefit from the expertise of eVolt UK – one of the biggest suppliers of electrical vehicle (EV) charging points – thanks to the new eVolt Raption 50kW Rapid Chargers.
The sites in West Dunbartonshire and Dundee continue to adhere to a nationwide theme, which has seen an increase in the number of rapid charge points for electric vehicles.
London has increased its offering in this respect in recent months and Adam Patel, Assistant Project Manager at Energy Utilities, believes that the knowledge of the Scottish market that eVolt possesses, will benefit Euro Garages for years to come.
He said: “With more than 130 Rapid Chargers installed across Scotland, eVolt’s knowledge and experience is unrivalled.
“We will carefully monitor these new charging points on a monthly basis and review their usage.
“Euro Garages is committed to environmental sustainability and reducing emissions, so there is certainly potential for us to install more charging units across our sites.”
The service station provider has 19 sites in Scotland in total, so the success of the charging points on the two sites could lead to expansion of charging infrastructure across other locations in the company’s portfolio.
Justin Meyer, general manager of eVolt UK, added: “We are proud to be supporting drivers who are embracing sustainable e-Mobility by providing reliable and efficient charging technology where it is most needed.”
