Northern Irish EV infrastructure company Weev has partnered with Park Centre, a retail and leisure facility in Belfast, to provide four new public charging stations.
The new chargers form part of the company’s £20 million investment in a new public EV charging network, which will see 1,500 new charging points installed over 350 locations across Northern Ireland before the end of 2024.
Weev installed four 50kW chargers at the shopping centre, allowing customers to power a battery to 80 per cent in as little as 45 minutes.
Thomas O’Hagan, Chief Commercial Officer (pictured left) at Weev said: “Our aim is to make EV charging more accessible than ever before by rolling out an EV charging network for drivers in Northern Ireland that is fit for purpose, maintained, and supported locally.
“EVs represent a new era for driving, and Weev is supporting Northern Ireland in its transition towards a greener, more sustainable motoring future.
“It is great to have the support of businesses such as Park Centre, and we look forward to installing even more chargers at shopping centres, hotels and other convenient and strategic locations across the region.”
Located in the heart of Belfast, Park Centre has over 30 outlet stores, offering customers a wide range of retail and hospitality choice.
Ruth Lindsay at Park Centre (Pictured right) added: “We are very pleased to partner with Weev to install charging points in our car park, answering the growing demand from shoppers.
“Park Centre aims to provide choice and convenience to our customers and with the recent installation of chargers we look forward to providing them with the very best EV infrastructure.
“By investing in EV charging points, we hope to continue to enhance our product offering to not only meet but exceed customer expectations in a sustainable manner.”
