The UK’s charging network is getting an upgrade as InstaVolt breaks ground on the UK’s largest rapid-only Super Hub

InstaVolt has kicked off construction on the UK’s largest rapid-only EV charging Super Hub. The game-changing hub is to be situated just north of Winchester at Three Maids Hill. With over 1,100,000 electric cars on UK roads, projects like this will be essential to the nation’s driving future.

Set for completion by Spring 2025, the Super Hub will boast an impressive arsenal of 44 charging bays. That’ll include specialised drive-through slots for larger vehicles and anyone towing trailers.

There are plenty of innovations to be excited about in this hub

Ground-mounted solar arrays and roof-mounted counterparts will contribute to the site’s ultimate sustainability. On-site battery energy storage systems will enhance the efficiency of the solar charging model. It’s a symphony of sustainability, ensuring uninterrupted charging, with or without the sun. 

InstaVolt’s CEO, Delvin Lane, expressed enthusiasm:

“There are now more than 1,100,000 fully electric cars on UK roads and Three Maids is the first of our new generation of Super Hubs. It represents a major landmark for us and will be game changing for EV drivers.

Linking the South with the Midlands and beyond, the site will be a gateway to the Jurassic Coast and the South West for EV drivers who will be able to head off south confident in the knowledge that they will be able to stop off, have the convenience of contactless payment, and get a fast and reliable charge.”

Winchester City Council has thrown its weight behind the project, recognising its pivotal role in steering the region towards sustainability. 

Cllr Kelsie Learney, Cabinet Member for Climate Emergency, Winchester City Council said: 

“Switching to electric vehicles is a key part of our strategy for decarbonising going forward and facilities like this play an important part in enabling that.”

InstaVolt committed to installing 11,000 ultra-rapid chargers across the UK and Ireland. The InstaVolt team is growing, and their projects become more integral to the country’s future prospects. Three Maids marks a major step towards realising this ambition. We’re eagerly anticipating more information on the upcoming sister hubs, which will form the backbone of InstaVolt’s future charging network.
