We are proud to have completed and be a part of the official opening of Europe’s most powerful electric vehicle (EV) charging hub – Redbridge Park and Ride, Oxford – at the new Energy Superhub Oxford development.
In 2019, we were appointed as the civil engineering and construction partner for Fastned UK. Fastned is building a pan-European network of superfast charging stations which all electric cars can use to charge.
On behalf of our partner Fastned, we initially installed ten charging bays at the Superhub with 300 kW of power available, capable of adding 300 miles of range in just 20 minutes for hundreds of EVs per day.
The project is part of a nationwide network of Energy Superhubs developed by Pivot Power, which combines transmission-connected batteries and power infrastructure for EV charging to enable more renewables and accelerate the decarbonisation of transport.
Each charging hub will be powered entirely by renewable energy. With 10 MW of installed capacity on site, the hub can scale up with EV adoption to provide charging for 400 vehicles, helping to support the estimated 36 million EVs expected on UK roads by 2040.
Fastned’s important addition of charging infrastructure is helping to meet the rapid and continuous increase in electric cars.
