Oxford is home to the newest and most powerful EV Charging hub in Europe. The hub, at launch, provides fast and ultra-rapid charging for 42 electric vehicles. However, it can expand to charge 400 electric vehicles in the future. It will support the estimated 36 million EVs expected on UK roads by 2040.
They required a 2500kVA, 33000/400v, Aluminium MIDEL Tier 2 distribution transformer to provide the power infrastructure behind this project.
This charging hub is set apart from other hubs in the UK as the site is directly connected to National Grid’s HV Transmission network. It is connected via a four-mile underground cable that can deliver 10MW of power to charge hundreds of EVs quickly and simultaneously. All without putting additional strain on the local electricity network or requiring costly upgrades.
