EV charging network Pod Point has signed an agreement with charge point manufacturer Tritium to offer the firm's Veefil-RT 50kW DC rapid charger to its customers.
Pod Point provides and manages electric car charging points, from home 'wallbox' type chargers, to rapid chargers for office and supermarket car parks, as well as ultra-rapid 150kW chargers.
Erik Fairbairn, Pod Point CEO and founder, said: "We decided to work with Tritium because their products are reliable, easy to install and have a small physical footprint. We also liked that it's easy to add custom branding to the units too.
"DC fast charging is a key part of the UK charger mix, especially for drivers who need to re-charge quickly on long journeys or in emergencies, and for commercial vehicles that can't top up charge because they don't park often.
Tritium's director of business development Europe, Jeroen Jonker, said: "We have already successfully deployed the first rapid chargers to Pod Point ahead of this agreement. Pod Point values this ease of installation and roll-out speed, and we are focused on ensuring a long-term supporting relationship with Pod Point.
"Pod Point's clients also appreciate that our charger has the world's smallest footprint, enabling charger deployment on their parking lots without sacrificing premium real estate."
