Chargemaster to run Q-Park’s London points
Chargemaster is to take responsibility for operating and maintaining all 124 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across parking provider Q-Park’s London facilities.
The agreement is effective from today (1 August) onwards and will see the charging points become part of the POLAR public charging network.
Under the new partnership, chargers at Q-Park’s sites across London will be upgraded to the latest specification units and fully maintained by Chargemaster. The company also plans to install additional charging points in the coming months to keep pace with demand from a growing number of EV owners and Q-Park customers.
David Martell, Chargemaster CEO, said: “Today’s growing number of EV owners in major cities and across the UK expect to find an available, fully functioning, charging point wherever they park. This is something that we believe is paramount to the sustained uptake of EVs, so we are glad that Q-Park customers will now be able to take advantage of the latest charging technology, and Chargemaster’s market-leading reliability rate of more than 98%.”
Adam Bidder, managing director of Q-Park UK and Ireland, added: “We have always been keen to encourage EV motoring in London, and have invested significantly to build a network of 124 charging points across our 20 sites. Our new partnership with Chargemaster allows us to offer customers a higher level of reliability, and to further expand our network in the future.”
