Urban-Air Port (UAP) has selected Osprey to provide EV charging for cars at its vertiport sites for eVTOL aircraft.
As one of the UK’s leading charge point operators, Osprey Chargin has provided several charging stations to demonstrate its “charging as a service” business model.
As part of the rollout of its vertiports, UAP hopes that EV charging will form a significant part of its non-aeronautical revenue and will be delivered through its digital platform and “Urban-Air Choice” customer app.
Osprey uses the latest technology to provide easy-to-use, accessible, rapid chargers, powered by electricity generated from 100% renewable sources. The chargers accept contactless and app payments and will be integrated into Urban-Air Choice on the UAP app.
“Our goal is to provide agnostic ground infrastructure for EVTOL cargo and passenger air taxis, including ground transport, as demonstrated at Air One – A seamless, zero-emission, intermodal journey is now possible,” says Ricky Sandhu, Urban-Air Port’s founder and Executive Chairman.
“We’re delighted to have Osprey join our Advanced Air Mobility ecosystem, the world’s strongest and most sustainable. We look forward to building holistic, viable and sustainable infrastructure solutions that can help us all achieve our net zero goals.”
UAP intends to employ Osprey’s innovative charging technology at a number of future sites throughout the UK.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Urban-Air Port to provide safe, reliable and accessible charging at its future sites,” says Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging.
“The eVTOL space is hugely exciting and is becoming increasingly relevant as the world looks to reduce its emissions in all forms of transport. From those electrifying the vehicles on our roads to our skies, we love collaborating with innovators in the EV world, and we look forward to continuing to work with Urban-Air Port on its future exciting projects.”
