Gridserve and Moto have unveiled the latest ‘High Power Electric Super Hub’ on the UK’s busiest motorway.
The all-new site at Moto Thurrock, located on the eastern side of the M25 between junctions 30 and 31, features 12 of Gridserve’s electric vehicle (EV) chargers.
The chargers have the capability of providing up to 350kW of power, meaning the latest electric vehicles could add the 117 miles of range required to drive around London’s Orbital Motorway in less than 15 minutes charging time.
The deployment of the Thurrock Electric Super Hub represents part of a multi-million-pound investment into expanding the Gridserve Electric Highway – a nationwide EV charging network that was acquired by the sustainable energy company 11 months ago.
Its partnership with motorway services operator Moto has seen four all-new High Power Electric Super Hubs opened at the company’s sites in five weeks; Burton-in-Kendal, Exeter, Swansea and now Thurrock.
Gridserve recently opened its second electric forecourt in Norwich.
Gridserve CEO Toddington Harper said: “We are committed to building a UK-wide charging network at a speed that will help give EV drivers the confidence they need to undertake any journey, irrespective of what electric vehicle they drive, and charge quickly, reliably and affordably. This is what is necessary to move the needle on climate change. Thurrock is further proof that we’re building on our partnership with Moto and we’ll continue to deliver more High Power Electric Super Hubs throughout the year.”
