Last update:

bp Chargemaster has been awarded a contract worth up to £21 million by Police Scotland to supply electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across its estates, in the largest ever deal of its kind in the UK. The project will be delivered in partnership with WGM Engineering, one of Scotland's leading engineering companies.

More than 1,000 charging points are set to be installed at 265 locations over the length and breadth of Scotland, including 35 ultra-fast chargers, making Police Scotland one of the first fleets in the UK to introduce this level of charging technology.

“bp’s ambition is to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner, and to also help the world to get to net zero. This includes not only reducing our own emissions but supporting our customers in reducing theirs,” said CEO of bp Chargemaster, Matteo de Renzi.

“Police Scotland's Fleet Strategy is highly ambitious, with the aim of having the UK's first ultra-low emission blue light fleet by 2030. This substantial contract marks a major step towards that goal by making ULEVs accessible to more of our officers and staff,” said Deputy Chief Constable, Will Kerr.

The Police Scotland contract is the second countrywide public sector fleet contract awarded to bp Chargemaster in Scotland, following the start of a charging infrastructure rollout for the Scottish Ambulance Service – also in partnership with WGM Engineering – with 35 sites already completed and the next 34 sites now underway.
