Osprey partners with NewRiver REIT

Rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging network Osprey Charging has partnered with real estate investment trust NewRiver REIT for its sustainability strategy.

The move will see Osprey Charging provide four rapid charge points for customers at NewRiver’s Three Horseshoes Walk Shopping Centre in central Warminster, which will improve access to charging in Wiltshire, whilst the wider collaboration will improve the convenience of public EV charging for customers of major retail brands such as M&S Food, Boots and B&M.

Charge points from the firm are compatible with every EV on the market today and add around 100 miles of range in around 35 minutes. In addition, the chargers are designed with simple payment for all drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments, as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

EV charging aims to future-proof retail assets and attract en-route fleet and private drivers as well as local residents and businesses for the long-term. Osprey cover all costs associated with installing and servicing the rapid charging points while sharing the profits, minimising financial risk, it said.

The announcement is Osprey’s latest partnership in the retail property sector, where it has a five-year track record of installing more than 200 rapid charge points for portfolio owners including Ediston, London & Scottish Investments, M7 Real Estate and Brookhouse Group.

Andrew Nosworthy, Commercial Director at Osprey Charging said:

“We’re delighted to be working with NewRiver to help future-proof their retail destinations by providing reliable, rapid EV charging for their retailers’ customers.

“This first charging site in Warminster is part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK, and NewRiver’s forward-thinking strategy will ensure they stay ahead of the curve by equipping their retail locations to meet growing EV charging demand.”
