Nicholl Oils teams up with Everun for new EV charging network
Nicholl Oils is teaming up with renewables specialists Everun to develop a new electric vehicle charging network in the north – with a joint investment worth an estimated £2.6 million.
Nicholl Oils will install at least one rapid charger and one AC fast charging point at its network of branded forecourts, as first reported in the Irish News.
Counties Antrim and Down will be the first to benefit – with 46 charging points installed between April and September. Both partners plan to grow the network to at least 100 points across the region.
Hugh Nicholl of Nicholl Oils said: “We have always been at the forefront of changes within the industry with a blended approach of having traditional fuels, synthetic fuels and now electrification in our product mix.
“I’ve always lived by the business motto that one plus one equals three, meaning that by partnering with experts, both companies mutually benefit but more importantly, the customer stands to benefit the most.”
Everun, which has been operating since 2010, and is one of Northern Ireland’s leading installers of EV charging points. The company specialises in renewable energy management, helping guide high energy users through their carbon reduction strategies with practical solutions.
Its head of projects and planning Eimear O’Reilly told the Irish News that “It was important for Everun to find a partner whose values align with our own.
“By working with Nicholl Oils we have the opportunity to build on their last 60 years of impeccable customer service and help take it to the next level within the renewable energy space.”
