Shell transforms a petrol station into an electric hub

Shell has transformed a traditional service station into a dedicated fast-charging center for electric cars – a first in the UK.

Shell opened its first charging center for electric vehicles in town, with fast charging stations that replace traditional petrol pumps, at a service station in the Fulham district of London.

In a context of growing adoption of electric cars by European motorists, the Anglo-Dutch oil company is diversifying its activities, with these stations-service of a new type that complement its global network of charging stations, which should reach “more than half a million locations” by the end of 2025.

Shell: simplifying the charging of electric cars in the city

The Fulham Shell charging hub is now entirely dedicated to electric vehicles, and can simultaneously accommodate nine cars, with fast charging stations of a power of 175 kW

. According to Shell, they would make it possible to recharge compatible models up to 80% of their capacity, in just about 10 minutes.

Shell Fulham station adopts a modern and “sustainable” design, with wooden roofs incorporating solar panels, while the chargers are powered 100% bycertified renewable energy.

While charging their vehicle, customers can shop in the supermarket Little Waitrose & Partners, take a gourmet break in the shop Costa Coffee, or benefit from a free Wi-Fi connection.
