Renewable power generation company Drax has acquired UK electric vehicle (EV) charge point installer BMM Energy Solutions.

Drax’s subsidiary Drax Energy Solutions has invested an unspecified amount to buy BMM, a company that has been Drax’s primary installation partner since 2018.

BMM’s management and staff will join the Drax team and continue to operate from BMM’s existing sites in the UK – Airdrie, Scotland and Gatwick, South East England.

Founded in 2013, BMM currently has over 13,000 EV charge points installed. Drax and BMM have plans to look at opening other locations in the future.

Adam Hall, director of Energy Services at Drax Group, said: “Businesses who are serious about sustainability need to electrify their fleet and offer on-site charging for employees.

“The acquisition of BMM means we now offer a complete end-to-end journey – from vehicle suitability assessments through to charge point installation, operation and maintenance.”

Terry Mohammed, CEO at BMM Energy Solutions, said: “We’re excited about joining Drax, and this deal is the next great step in our growth journey.

“Integrating our installation and maintenance skills into the business will ensure that Drax’s clients can benefit for years to come.”
