Coop Burnham on Crouch Osprey EV Point

Rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging provider Osprey Charging has entered into partnership with East of England Co-op.

The initial phase of this collaboration has seen the launch of two ultra-rapid charge points at East of England Co-op Burnham-on-Crouch, with a further seven sites to follow over coming months.

The Osprey East of England Co-op locations will provide access to reliable, convenient EV charging infrastructure and support UK-wide decarbonisation efforts.

The 150kW charge points are dual charging, compatible with every EV on the market today and typically add 100 miles of range in around 15 minutes.

The chargers are designed with simple payment for all drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments, as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Steven Fendley, building and environmental compliance manager at East of England Co-op said: “We are thrilled to partner with Osprey to provide more electric vehicle charging stations at our stores. We are dedicated to helping our customers and communities to move over to electric vehicles and with our industry partners we are reviewing all our sites for suitability for EV charging. The new rapid-charging points are easy to use and offer customers a convenient opportunity to charge their vehicle while doing their shopping, or alternatively pick up a drink and something to eat whilst getting a needed charge.”

Andrew Nosworthy, commercial director at Osprey Charging added: “We are excited to launch this partnership with East of England Co-op and contribute to the continued growth of reliable EV infrastructure across the UK. The locations in this venture will significantly improve access to public charging in the region, with the new Burnham-on-Crouch site doubling the number of rapid chargers in the Maldon District. Together with East of England Co-op, we look forward to making a lasting impact on the UK’s EV network.”
