Castrol and Vattenfall have entered into a partnership in order to be able to offer car dealers in Germany a complete range of equipment with e-charging stations and the associated charging management. Vattenfall takes care of the construction of the charging stations and the billing. The charging stations are operated with electricity generated from renewable sources. Castrol supplies numerous car dealers in Germany with lubricants and can offer dealerships attractive terms as part of its cooperation with Vattenfall.
The cooperation between Vattenfall and Castrol began in January 2020 with the installation of two charging stations at the BMW dealer STADAC in Ahrensburg near Hamburg.
“In addition to our e-fluids for hybrid and electric vehicles, we can now also offer our contract partners a complete solution for the electrification of their businesses. With around 15,000 charging points across Europe, Vattenfall is one of the market leaders in the energy sector. Vattenfall can also supply car dealerships with photovoltaic systems and their own green electricity. We have a competent full-service provider at our side, ”says Michael Hansen, Castrol sales director, FWS Germany.
“With Castrol, we have now found a sales partner who not only shares our CO 2 reduction goals, but also actively implements them with his customers, for example within the framework of BP Target Neutral. The partnership with Castrol gives us access to a very large network and enables us to provide professional support to car dealerships. In future, the e-charging stations will also be accessible for the Aral fuel and charging cards and thus offer advantages for the consumer,” said Fermin Bustamante, director, Sales & Operations Vattenfall Germany.
The new offer from Vattenfall and Castrol complements Aral’s strategy of providing quick charging stations at suitable petrol station locations in Germany. Vattenfall and Castrol are focusing on a tailor-made solution for car dealerships to meet changing consumer requirements.
