BP PULSE AND APCOA TO OPEN FAST-CHARGING EV HUBS ACROSS EUROPE
bp pulse, one of the leading rapid and ultra-fast public EV charging networks in the UK and APCOA Parking Group, the UK’s leading provider of tailored parking solutions with an established presence in Europe, have signed a strategic pan-European frame agreement to open more than 100 EV fast charging hubs across Europe.
Under the agreement, bp pulse plans to install ultra-fast charging at APCOA car parks – ‘Urban Hubs’ – in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland and the UK over the next three years to help expand its charging network in city centres and further accelerate urban e-mobility infrastructure throughout Europe.
The project is part of APCOA’s plans to transform its car parks into Urban Hubs which will provide physical and digital infrastructure for mobility, logistics, e-charging and technology based services.
The two companies aim to work together to provide a convenient customer journey through digital integration of the bp pulse and ‘APCOA Connect’ app in the UK and ‘APCOA Flow’ app in Europe. Registered users will be able to locate, access, book and pay for their charging and parking at the car park from their mobile, and the car park’s entry and exit barriers will open automatically as the vehicle approaches.
bp pulse is bp’s electric vehicle (EV) charging business.
APCOA PARKING Group, headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, is Europe’s leading parking operator with 50 years of industry expertise.
