Roadchef and GRIDSERVE have announced the launch of their brand new Electric Super Hubs at Annandale Water, located on the A74(M) and Northampton Southbound, on the M1.
The partners announced their plans to expand electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities at Roadchef Motorway Service Areas (MSA) in the UK, which saw the first two Electric Super Hubs launch at Watford Gap North and South (M1) in September.
Consisting of a minimum of six 350kW-capable chargers, these plans have been put in place to urgently deliver on an expanded charging network as part of the Roadchef’s wider sustainability focus and agenda to support Britain’s journey to be safer and greener.
Paul Comer, Director of EV Implementation at Roadchef, said: “Since launching our first Electric Super Hubs at Watford Gap North and South, we’ve opened nine more across the UK, including Annandale Water and Northampton Southbound. As more EVs take to the road, it’s essential for our facilities to be expanded and upgraded to meet the demand of more electric vehicles taking to the road. The rollout of our Electric Super Hubs with GRIDSERVE is a step in the right direction to achieve this.”
Roadchef currently has over 40 GRIDSERVE Medium Power chargers and 24 standalone AC chargers across 29 sites. Further EV charging expansion will be announced as plans accelerate into 2024.
