Weev Launches Armagh’s First Ultra-Rapid EV Charging Station
Leading electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure company Weev has launched the first ultra-rapid EV charging station in Co Armagh at McAnerney’s in Armagh city centre.
The 150kw device is now fully operational for public use at the popular family-owned supermarket.
Thomas O’Hagan, Chief Commercial Officer, Weev, said:
“We’re pleased to complete the installation of not only the fastest EV public charging device in Armagh but the first ultra-rapid station anywhere in the county.
“We believe this is a major step towards supporting the adoption of EVs in the area, previously underserved in regards to charging infrastructure, in turn helping to create a cleaner, greener future for us all.
“McAnerney’s is exceptionally well known in Armagh city and beyond with a convenient forecourt situated on a busy route that made them the perfect location partner for us.”
The charging hub can accommodate two vehicles at once, with speeds allowing EVs to fully charge in a matter of minutes.
The installation is the latest stage in Weev’s multi-million pound investment programme that will see thousands of charging points installed over the coming years.
Aidan McAnerney, Managing Director, McAnerney’s added:
“Having noticed an increasing number of customers driving electric vehicles, we are proud to be a part of the next stage of evolution in EVs by offering them a new charging solution.
“They, along with sales representatives that have moved to electric fleets say they love the convenience of being able to charge their vehicle while they visit our supermarket.
“We believe that this new charging station will benefit our customers and encourage more people to switch to EVs for the first time.”
McAnerney’s is a third-generation supermarket, off licence and fuel station that has been operating since the 1930s.
