Weev has partnered with Park Centre, a retail and leisure facility in Belfast, to provide new public charging stations. 

The four chargers will form part of Weev’s £20m investment in a new public EV charging network. The new network will see 1,500 charging points installed at more than 350 locations across Northern Ireland before the end of 2024. 

The company has installed four 50kW chargers at the shopping centre, which will allow customers to power a battery to 80 per cent in as quick as 45 minutes. 

Thomas O’Hagan, chief commercial officer at Weev, said: “Our aim is to make EV charging more accessible than ever before by rolling out an EV charging network for drivers in Northern Ireland that is fit for purpose, maintained and supported locally. EVs represent a new era for driving, and Weev is supporting Northern Ireland in its transition towards a greener, more sustainable motoring future. It is great to have the support of businesses such as Park Centre, and we look forward to installing even more chargers at shopping centres, hotels and other convenient and strategic locations across the region.” 

Located in the heart of Belfast, Park Centre has in excess of 30 outlet stores.
