In short, yes. I see no reason you can’t run both of those on a single 30A circuit. Even with startup loads, the spike should be short enough that it wouldn’t throw the breaker. Running a second outlet is the same as running a 115V outlet with the exception that there’s an extra wire and the wire will be larger. Just use a pigtail to split the line at the first outlet and run it to the second outlet.

This of course is dependent on local codes. I think in most locations that multiple outlets are allowed on a single 230 circuit but you should check and make sure for your locale.
