Electric Vehicle chargers installed at Chippenham railway station

Twenty-eight new EV charging stations have been installed at the Cocklebury Road car park at the town's railway station.

The chargers were installed by APCOA and Network Rail working in partnership with Compleo, which is one of Europe's leading, full-service providers of EV charging technology, and Network Rail's contractor AmcoGiffen. All 28 chargers are Compleo's eBOX Professional chargers and are rated at 22kW.

Payment for use of the charges is simple and secure with an EV auto pay facility which also allows users to pay for their parking.

As well as the chargers being available to railway passengers, they are also available for use by the town's shoppers and visitors, and visitors to Wiltshire College.

Hamish Kiernan, Commercial Director, Property at Network Rail concluded: “Using our car parks and real estate to install and offer EV charging not only improves the experience for our customers and the wider community, it is also an integral part of our sustainability strategy and focus on reaching net-zero.”
