The rollout, which will see up to 200 BP Pulse rapid charge points installed, is expected to complete by the end of 2025.
It will add to company-owned division Henderson Retail’s existing EV network, which has over 40 charge points already available at 21 sites in Northern Ireland.
“The demand for ultra-fast charging points in Northern Ireland is high,” said Henderson Group chief financial officer Ron Whitten. “Current figures from the Department for Transport show there are currently around 18,762 ultra-low emission vehicles registered in the region, an increase of 55% in the past two years alone.
“This steep trajectory of the volume of electric vehicles on the road is only going to continue, yet Northern Ireland has just 60 ultra-fast charge points in operation.
“We are making considered, positive steps in line with consumer behaviour and working with BP Pulse to install ultra-fast chargers at our sites, which will give EV drivers the opportunity to charge at a location that is convenient to their journey.”
BP Pulse is one of the largest electric vehicle charging operators in the UK, and plans to invest up to £18bn in the UK energy system by 2030. This includes up to £1bn for an EV charging infrastructure.
BP Pulse CEO Akira Kirton added: “Fast, reliable charging in convenient locations is essential to give drivers the confidence to switch to electric vehicles.
“Working with Henderson Group, a retail network that dominates the market in Northern Ireland, we have the opportunity and aspiration to create one of the largest networks of ultra-fast and rapid charging points – meeting the rise in demand for now and in the future.”
