BP Chargemaster has been awarded a contract worth up to £21million to supply EV charging infrastructure for Police Scotland.
The deal, which BP Chargemaster says is the largest ever of its kind in the UK, will see more than 1,000 charging points installed across 265 locations.
This will include 35 ultra-fast chargers, which it is said will make Police Scotland one of the first UK fleets to introduce this level of charging technology.
The project will be delivered in partnership with engineering company WGM Engineering.
BP Chargemaster CEO Matteo de Renzi said: "We are incredibly proud to be able to support Police Scotland through this landmark contract - the largest of its kind ever awarded in the UK - as they transition their fleet and contribute to the Scottish Government's 2045 net zero target."
WGM Engineering managing director Ian Mathieson said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with BP Chargemaster delivering this large scale and exciting EV transition programme for Police Scotland. We will play a significant role in their journey to net zero carbon by 2045.
"Our partnership will provide cutting edge technology and smart solutions as well as unique local expertise on this pan-Scotland delivery."
