Campbell Town was promised the state's first ultra-fast electric vehicle charging station in May by Chargefox but it seems Evie Networks has beat the company to it.
Chargefox announced last year the town would have Tasmania's first ultra-fast charging station by the end of 2019 but has since changed the planned location of their station to 'central Tasmania'.
Instead Evie Networks has put in a development application to the Northern Midlands Council for a 350 kilowatt station at 3 Commonwealth Lane, Campbell Town.
The proposed $435,000 project will feature two outlets with the ability to give an electric vehicle 350 kilometres range in only 15 minutes.
The state has more than 50 charging stations but none have the speed capabilities of the proposed station.
IN OTHER NEWS:
The station is proposed to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week to give drivers an 'equivalent experience to refuelling a conventional' vehicle.
The company has two other ultra-fast chargers planned in the state, aiming to ensure drivers travel no more than 200 kilometres between these type of chargers.
In October 2018 Launceston installed the state's first public fast charger with a 50 kilowatt station taking between 20 to 60 minutes to give drivers a 250-500 kilometre range per hour.
The application is available for public comment until January 15.
