Blink Charging’s recent acquisition of UK charging provider EB Charging, added more than 1,150 chargers, installed or committed for delivery, to Blink’s footprint. Blink is now present in over 18 countries.
Now EB Charging has announced an agreement with European parking operator Q-Park to deploy nearly 600 charging points across 80 sites in the UK and Ireland.
In a deal worth some £3 million ($3.7 million) EB Charging will roll out over 600 charging points across Q-Park’s portfolio of parking facilities. Installations will begin in July, and will include the modernization of the existing infrastructure with EB Charging’s new hardware.
EB Charging will be responsible for hardware installation and for managing the charging service, which includes providing 24/7 customer support to Q-Park customers.
“We acquired EB Charging precisely because of its strong market presence and reach across Europe, alongside its innovative and complementary charging technology,” said Michael Farkas, founder and CEO of Blink. “With this agreement, we will increase the accessibility of charging ports across the UK, Ireland and beyond, including more than doubling Q-Park’s existing charging portfolio.”
