Fastned partners with Tesla to build EV charging hub in Oxford

On Friday, in a statement Dutch charging infrastructure company Fastned said, it has partnered with Tesla to build electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at a hub in Oxford, UK.

The hub, featuring 26 charging stations, will also include 12 Tesla Supercharger stalls and 14 Fastned fast chargers and will be built in cooperation with Oxford City Council, EDF Renewables’ unit Pivot Power, and Spain’s Wenea.

“The Fastned charging station will be able to charge 10 EVs simultaneously at rates allowing divers to add up to 300 miles of range in just 20 minutes,” said the company.

“Big stations are the only way to provide charging capacity to the exponentially growing number of EVs coming to our roads,” said Michiel Langezaal, Fastned’s CCEO in a statement.

“The hub will be Europe’s most powerful electric vehicle charging hub with up to 10 megawatts of power available for future expansion,” said Fastned.

So far the Amsterdam based Fastned has built 137 fast charging stations across Germany, the Netherlands, Britain, Switzerland, Belgium and aims to expand into France. It plans on building 40 charging stations across its markets in 2021 and increase that number significantly next year.

The hub is set to be operational in late 2021.
