European smart charging solutions provider, NewMotion, has announced a roaming partnership with UK charge point operator Osprey Charging, formerly Engenie. Under the partnership, 259 rapid connections are added to NewMotion’s public UK charging network.

NewMotion and Osprey Charging are part of Hubject’s international intercharge network, a platform for B2B interoperability services with over 750 partners worldwide. Hubject provides open and standardised interfaces for its partners to start roaming with other, cross-country and cross-operator industry players.

Alan McCleave, UK General Manager of NewMotion, says: “It’s great to see roaming partnerships are becoming the norm here in the UK as our EV market continues to mature and the need for easy access to charging infrastructure grows. Using Hubject’s intercharge platform to facilitate this roaming partnership offers a reliable connection to the Osprey network. We’re always looking for more partners with open networks, who want to make EV charging easy for drivers.”

Ian Johnston, Osprey Charging CEO, adds, “The partnership with NewMotion enabled via Hubject allows more EV drivers to discover our rapid chargers across the UK, and to easily start and pay for a charge.

“Whilst we offer contactless payment as standard, we appreciate and embrace the added benefits to customers that belonging to a reliably connected roaming service brings.”

Melanie Cao, Senior Manager Market Development at Hubject, comments: “We are well aware of the major challenges in interoperability in the UK, namely to provide EV drivers with the most seamless and transparent access to charging networks and at the same time to enable our partners to offer such charging services via a central platform.

“Therefore, we are more than thrilled to provide the structural foundation to NewMotion and Osprey Charging’s roaming partnership and to support both partners to expand their reach in the UK.”

NewMotion recently connected the 170,000th charge point to its roaming network and now counts over 3,000 charging locations in the UK.
