Built and operated by Evie Networks, the ultra-fast charging station at Coochin Creek on the Bruce Highway, 60 kilometres north of Brisbane, complements the network of 18 EV fast chargers installed in cities up the coast by the Queensland Government, and is the first in Evie’s Australia-wide network of 42 stations, due to be rolled out over the next two years.
Manufactured by Brisbane company Tritium, the station’s 350kW chargers offer both Japanese and European plugs and are the first of their kind globally, catering for all available EV models. Currently fitted with two charging heads, Coochin Creek has the space and infrastructure to support an additional four chargers as Australian EV ownership increases.
For the first month of opening, November, charging at Coochin Creek will be free. After this, Evie customers will be able to use a pay-as-you-go system via the Evie app, available on both iOS and Android devices, or an RFID card which can be ordered via the app.
