Scotland’s biggest ultra-rapid charging station opens

European rapid charging company Fastned has opened Scotland’s biggest ultra-rapid charging station in the Palace Grounds Retail Park, Hamilton.

The station, which is located just off the A72 and near the M74, comprises eight chargers, each of which is supplied by 100% renewable energy.

The station, Fastned’s 10th in the UK, was part-funded by the Scottish Government’s Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme and supported through the European Regional Development Programme.

Tom Hurst, UK Country Manager and Network Development Manager for Fastned, said: “Scotland has long been at the forefront of the UK’s transition to a greener future, and transport is no exception. We are delighted to be helping with this transition.”
