Mullingar, Ireland, September 23, 2019 – EasyGo.ie, Ireland’s first privately-owned electric vehicle charging network, has today added a 6th Rapid Charger onto their growing Irish charging network.
The Veefil-RT 50kW DC Rapid Charger from world-leading DC charging technology specialists, Tritium, will work on the EasyGo.ie network which enjoys interoperability with other network operators across Europe due to its partnership with the pan-European services provider www.Gireve.com.
Interoperability between network operators was a cornerstone of the decision published by the Irish Commissioner for Regulation of Utilities as it makes it possible for drivers to find and use chargers from different network providers without having to sign up for multiple accounts.
The successful installation marks another step in the direction towards EasyGo.ie chargers being available nationwide and the Tritium 50kW DC charger, the most advanced of its kind and which can add an average of 50 kilometres of range to an electric vehicle in just 10 minutes.
“Sales of new EVs in Ireland are set to grow exponentially as the Climate Action Plan to support getting 1,000,000 cars on Irish road kicks in. We look forward to playing our part by making more charge points available in more places to cater for this increase,” said EasyGo.ie co-founder, Chris Kelly.
The charger was unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Mullingar Park Hotel.
“We’re always looking at ways to better serve visitors and guests as well as the future needs of our customers and we are seeing more and more electric cars in our car park recently,” said Josephine Hughes, Owner of The Mullingar Park Hotel. “We worked with EasyGo.ie because we appreciate the quality of the product and services they provide and this positively reflects the levels of comfort and convenience we provide to our visiting guests”
The Ceremony was attended by Peter Burke T.D.
“The deployment by EasyGo.ie of the first DC Rapid to go live in Mullingar is a welcome step forward in our efforts to combat climate change,” said Fine Gael T.D. Peter Burke. “Ireland has been a leader in the eMobility space for some time, and with EasyGo.ie entering the market with full interoperability arrangements with other network providers, Ireland can continue to lead the way.”
EasyGo.ie partnered with Tritium to leverage Tritium’s expertise in design, deployment and engineering, combined with its superior backend consultation and support capabilities. Tritium has installed chargers in more than 30 countries and its Veefil-RT is considered the most advanced charger of its kind in the world, with the smallest physical footprint – ensuring installation can be undertaken unobtrusively and successfully in areas where real estate or space is at a premium.
“The installation of publicly-available rapid charging options has been proven to lead to greater electric vehicle uptake across the world,” said Kevin Pugh, Country Manager, UK and Ireland for Tritium. “EasyGo’s plans to install chargers at an additional 82 sites is well underway. As people begin to see publicly-available rapid chargers coming available they’ll be more confident to switch to electric driving as they’ll see that the infrastructure is there to support them.”
Each Veefil-RT DC rapid charger features a modem which can alert EasyGo.ie and EV drivers – using the EasyGo.ie web app (with a native app coming soon) – in real-time if the charger is available or not.
Founded by Gerry Cash and Chris Kelly, EasyGo.ie is a leading independent Car Charging Operator in Ireland. The charging network is used extensively across Retail, Workplace, Hospitality and Public Sectors and enables users to pre-book charging sessions to be sure the charger is ready, free and awaiting their arrival.
