Ampol launches its first AmpCharge EV charging site

Ampol has opened its first AmpCharge electric vehicle (EV) charging site at Ampol Woolworths MetroGo in Alexandria, NSW.

This Alexandria site, which can charge an EV at up to 150kw, is the first of an initial roll out of 120 sites to be delivered on Ampol forecourts Australia-wide by December 2023.

A further four pilot sites will open over the coming month in Carseldine QLD, Northmead NSW, Altona North VIC, and Belmont WA.

Matt Halliday, CEO and Managing Director at Ampol, said the first site not only represents the beginning of the roll out but the first part of Ampol’s shift to position as a provider of electricity solutions for customers wherever they need them.  

“The delivery of AmpCharge infrastructure on our forecourts will be complemented by new at-destination charging solutions in places like shopping centres, and our home charging infrastructure offer. We will also leverage our knowledge and strong relationships across industry to provide charging solutions to fleet infrastructure that will support energy transition.”  

Halliday said that for over 100 years, Ampol has kept Australians moving with the right fuel in the right place.

“Today, as the energy needs of our customers evolve and more of us are choosing electric vehicles, Ampol is also transitioning to provide a range of fast and reliable electric vehicle charging solutions.” 

Brent Merrick, Executive General Manager, International and New Business at Ampol, said Ampol is looking to establish itself as the leading EV charging network in Australia by 2030.

“Our vision for the Ampol EV network is to develop a best-in-class EV charging ecosystem enabling the rollout of our own charging assets and allowing us to partner with others to form Australia’s leading EV charging network. The milestone today is part of the first-stage rollout of fast charging technology to sites across our national retail network.”
