Euro Garages sites deploy rapid charging units
Forecourt operator Euro Garages, which runs an expanding network of around 360 sites in mainland UK, has deployed rapid charging units from eVolt at two of its sites in Scotland as demand for EVs in the country rises.
The Scottish Parliament outlined plans late last year to phase out petrol and diesel cars by 2032, although its plans on hybrid vehicle acceptance are still unclear.
Located at Lomondgate Services in West Dunbartonshire and Caird Park service station in Dundee, the eVolt Raption 50kW Rapid Chargers will join the growing ChargePlace Scotland network and are capable of charging two vehicles simultaneously at full power in approximately 30 minutes.
Based on their usage, the forecourt operator, which currently has 19 sites across Scotland, may also add further chargers in the future.
Adam Patel, assistant project manager, energy Utilities, at Euro Garages, said: “Euro Garages is committed and dedicated to environmental sustainability and reducing emissions, so there is certainly potential for us to install more charging units across our sites.”
