A total of 16 new ultra-fast EV charger hubs will be installed in Renfrewshire.

Osprey Charging has revealed its plans to make the new hub by the Phoenix Retail Park just off the A737 the largest public ultra-rapid charging hub in Scotland.

The EV rapid charging network has completed the purchase of a freehold site in Linwood, where the installation of 16 300kW public charge points has received planning permission.

The hub will be surrounded by several amenities that drivers can utilise while their EVs recharge.

It will be located next to the Showcase Cinema and north of the McDonald’s drive-thru, with several on-site shops to keep drivers occupied.

Ian Johnston, chief executive officer of Osprey Charging, said: "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.

"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 hub opposite the Phoenix Retail Park will be another significant milestone in our rapidly expanding network.

"As the year progresses, our goal is to complete 30 hubs, which will be a monumental stride not only in the advancement of our network but also in fortifying the broader public EV charging infrastructure.”
