A project to install rapid electric vehicle (EV) chargers at petrol forecourts has seen InstaVolt, who are based on Chineham Park, shortlisted for a national award.
The company has been named as a finalist in the ‘Innovation’ category of this year’s Forecourt Trader Awards after installing rapid chargers at several Gulf fuel station forecourts. The project has added to the UK’s public charging infrastructure, giving more EV drivers access to simple, pay-as-you-go charging.
Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised for our work in helping to expand the UK’s public charging infrastructure. [Fuel station] Forecourts play an important role in adding to the network and we’re pleased that Gulf Retail has chosen to work with us as it accelerates its offering for electric car drivers.”
The project is one of three in the running for the prestigious Forecourt Trader Innovation award. The winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony hosted by Denise van Outen in London on September 13.
The Forecourt Trader Awards are recognised as the most prestigious and respected in the UK’s petrol retailing calendar and seek to reward the best in the industry.
