Evie Networks and Puma Energy have announced a new partnership to bring ultra fast EV charging stations to Queensland truck stops.
The first of these recently opened in the North Queensland hub of Townsville. The Puma Energy Cluden site, located on the Bruce Highway, is un on 100% renewable energy.
It furthers Evie Networks’ network extension in a bid to connect Australia’s east coast from Cairns to Adelaide.
Puma energy’s General Manager Retail, Alan Plews, said it was an important partnership for Puma, as they look to expand into more sustainable options.
“Puma Energy’s partnership with Evie Networks provides EV drivers in North Queensland with the first 24/7 convenient, safe and ultra-fast charging experience with the added benefits of Puma Energy’s service station amenities.”
Evie Networks CEO Chris Mills said the site was critical for their expansion plans.
“The Puma Energy Cluden site is a critical site for Evie Networks as it aims to achieve its ambition to connect the east coast of Australia, with ultra-fast EV chargers. Our network is set to be the largest ultra-fast EV charging network in Australia and complements the existing Queensland Government network of fast chargers,” Mr Mills said.
The station’s 350kW chargers were manufactured by Brisbane based company Tritium and features both Japanese and European plugs, catering for all EV models.
