Fastned has won tenders from Autoroutes du Sud de la France to develop and operate three more fast-charging parks on motorways in France.
The locations of the new Fastned Charging Hub will be at the rest stops Aire de la Plaine Forez Est (A 72), Aire d’Ambussum Nord (A 9) and Aire des Jardins des Causses du Lot (A 20). So once south of Lyon, between Montpellier and Nimes and north of Toulouse.
Each fast-charging hub will initially have eight charging points, each capable of delivering up to 300 kW. Fastned expects to complete the stations by the end of 2022.
Fastned Stock reacted positively to the news and the Stock moved up 2% after the announcement.
The latest tender is part of a push by the French Ministry of Ecological Transition that has set the goal to equip all 360 private motorway service areas with charging infrastructure by the end of 2022.
