Partnering with bp pulse on the opening of their most powerful EV charging hub in London

BPPULSE23230

We have partnered with bp pulse to install and project manage their new ultra-fast hub in Central London.

  • The new ultra-fast hub in Pimlico features the latest technology with eight 150kW chargers, each capable of charging up to 100 miles of range in around 15 minutes.
  • Sixteen electric vehicles can charge simultaneously at the new hub.
  • Located at Q-Park Pimlico near Victoria station, the new Gigahub™ strengthens bp pulse’s presence in the capital, complementing its existing Gigahub™ site in Park Lane.

bp pulse has opened its most powerful charging hub in central London. Located at Q-Park Pimlico in the Borough of Westminster, the hub features eight ultra-fast 150kW chargers each capable of charging up to 100 miles of range in around 15 minutes – which would allow drivers to make three round trips to Heathrow Airport.*

Akira Kirton, vice president, bp pulse UK, said

We have seen ultra-fast charging sessions on the bp pulse public network in London double over the last two years, so it's clear that there is appetite for this technology.

The new Pimlico hub, significantly boosts the ultra-fast EV charging offer in central London. Previously, only thirteen ultra-fast charge points were publicly available across all charge point operators in 2023.**

The chargers will be available to individual customers as well as bp pulse’s numerous fleet customers, including Uber whose drivers will be able to take advantage of two dedicated charge points at the site.

The Pimlico hub also showcases an innovative approach to installing chargers in indoor and underground car parks where limited headroom presents a major challenge. Moving forward, this new bespoke solution will provide an important blueprint for charger installation in similar settings.  

* Depending on the vehicle, its charge management software, its battery, the weather and driving conditions. Based on the distance between Q-Park Pimlico and Heathrow Terminal 2 via the M4. 

** Based on Zapmap data as of 4th October 2023. Central London is defined here as the Central Activities Zone per the London Plan. Ultra-fast charge points are defined as those 100 kW and above.
