Greenlots, a subsidiary of Shell, has installed the first electric vehicle charger, on behalf of its parent company, in Singapore.
The DC fast charger installed at a Shell service station is one of the 10 units set to be installed over the next few months.
The initiative is expected to help accelerate the adoption of EVs in Singapore by simplifying consumer vehicle charging and reducing the time spent to fully charge a vehicle.
Greenlots will use the project to expand its presence in the Asia and North America EV markets.
“Greenlots and Shell have been exploring synergies since we were acquired earlier this year,” said Brett Hauser, CEO of Greenlots. “This project demonstrates our collective commitment to enable electrified transportation around the world, specifically in Singapore where Greenlots was founded and bolsters Greenlots’ expansion in Southeast Asia.
"Supporting Shell’s EV charging network in Singapore is a logical extension of the work we’ve been doing there to provide charging solutions at home, at work, for fleets and on-the-go and reinforces Greenlots’ status as a global leader in the EV charging industry.”
Shell is one of the largest foreign investors in Singapore and has operated there for 128 years, according to a statement.
