Osprey chosen as preferred charging partner for Urban-Air Port

Charging vehicles at Urban-Air Port

Urban-Air Port (UAP) has selected Osprey as one of its preferred partners to provide charging for vehicles at its vertiport sites.

UAP intends to employ Osprey’s charging technology at several future sites throughout the UK.

During UAP’s three-week Air One event, Osprey provided several stations as a means of demonstrating on-site ‘charging as a service’.

Moving forward, this will form a part of UAP’s non-aeronautical revenue, the company said, which will be delivered through its digital platform and customer offering, ‘Urban-Air Choice’ and the accompanying app.

The two companies say they “share a like-minded vision and aim to remove the main barrier to the success of the EV industry – infrastructure”.

UAP says it aims to deploy its multi-modal hub on a mass scale, creating a network of connectivity, while Osprey is building one of the UK’s largest vehicle charging infrastructure networks. 

Ricky Sandhu, founder and executive chairman at Urban-Air Port, said: “Our goal is to provide agnostic ground infrastructure for EVTOL cargo and passenger air taxis, including ground transport, as demonstrated at Air One – a seamless, zero-emission, intermodal journey is now possible.

“We look forward to building holistic, viable and sustainable infrastructure solutions that can help us all achieve our net zero goals.”

Ian Johnston, chief executive officer of Osprey Charging, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Urban-Air Port to provide safe, reliable and accessible charging at its future sites.

The eVTOL space is hugely exciting and is becoming increasingly relevant as the world looks to reduce its emissions in all forms of transport. From those electrifying the vehicles on our roads to our skies, we love collaborating with innovators in the EV world, and we look forward continuing to work with Urban-Air Port on its future exciting projects.”
