Osprey Charging to establish largest Scottish EV charging hub

Osprey Charging has purchased second freehold site, which will become Osprey’s largest charging location in Scotland

Osprey Charging is to build a new ultra-fast 16-charger hub in Paisley, which when completed, will be the largest public ultra-rapid charging hub in Scotland.

The charge point operator has completed the purchase of a freehold site in Paisley, and planning permission has been granted to install 16 300kW public charge points.

Located by the Phoenix Retail Park in Paisley, the 16-charger hub will be situated just off the A737, a short drive from the M8, Scotland’s busiest motorway. On a key route for Scotland’s drivers, the new Paisley super-hub will provide rapid, reliable and high-quality EV charging in a strategic location.

Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging stated:

“We’re hugely excited to have completed the purchase of the land for our forthcoming 16-charger ultra-rapid hub in Paisley, which marks our second freehold site in the UK. The purchase of freehold sites is an important strategy for Osprey, as it enables us to build larger public charging locations with greater flexibility over their design.

“This hub will be crucial in supporting the uptake of EVs in Scotland as well as in meeting growing demand for reliable, accessible and high-quality EV charging across the UK.

“In 2024, we have successfully delivered nine high-powered hubs across various UK locations, and the new Paisley hub opposite the Phoenix Retail Park will be another significant milestone in our rapidly expanding network.”

Osprey Charging’s network of public EV chargers now includes over 1,000 rapid and ultra-rapid chargers in key urban and rural locations across the UK.
