ELECTRIC vehicle infrastructure company Weev is charging up the retail landscape in Co Armagh by providing four new public charge stations at Rushmere in a move which is likely to attract increased footfall to the popular shopping centre.

It forms part of Weev’s multi-million-pound investment programme that will see thousands of EV charging stations rolled out across the north in the coming years.

Weev ( has installed two 24kW DCs and two 22kW ACs at Rushmere, enabling customers to power up to a range of 100 miles within a one- to two-hour time frame

Weev chief commercial officer Thomas O’Hagan said: “It is great to welcome Rushmere to our expanding network of location partners as we continuously aim to make EV charging more accessible to drivers across Northern Ireland and beyond.

“By partnering with Rushmere we are offering a vital service to customers who drive EVs and helping the shopping centre future-proof its facility for years to come.

“We look forward to working with more shopping centres, hotels and other convenient location partners as businesses across the region are increasingly searching for ways to adopt sustainable practices in everyday operations.”

Martin Walsh, manager at Rushmere shopping centre, said: “We're thrilled to be partnering with Weev to reinstall charging points in our car park, where we are seeing a rise in the number of customers arriving in EVs.

“We strive to provide choice and convenience to our customers, and the recent installation of chargers offers them the best-in-class EV infrastructure.

“Installing the EV charging hub has allowed us to further strengthen our green credentials by reducing operational impact on the environment and add to our list of already impressive facilities.”
