EVLOMO and PTT launch first EV charging station in Thailand
EVLOMO, in partnership with PTT Oil and Retail Business PLC (OR), launched their first electric vehicle (EVs) charging station at PTT Station, in Ban Chang, Rayong, along Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor.
The Thai government has set an ambitious goal for the adoption of EVs in Thailand by 2035. Without adequate EV charging infrastructure, the rollout of EVs at a huge scale would not be possible.
EVLOMO’s partner PPT has more than 2,290 fuel retail outlets, along with 3,440 coffee shops under its Cafe Amazon brand all over Thailand. It also manages 2,040 convenience stores.
EVLOMO will install more than 1,000 new fast chargers to accelerate EV adoption in Thailand. Its target is to have DC charging available every 50 kilometers on their electric vehicle charging network. EVLOMO is also entering into the residential EV charging space by introducing AC chargers and will install a mix of AC and DC fast chargers at various universities, schools, hospitals, and hotels all over Thailand. In the coming weeks EVLOMO also plans to finalize the launch of Pure EV stations across Thailand.
EVLOMO, Inc. is a Miami, Florida, U.S.A.-based company working in the EV sector, working through its affiliate in Thailand, EVLOMO Technologies Co. Ltd.
EVLOMO’s EV charging network is powered by state-of-the-art technology from Tritium, a market leader in DC charging whose current customers include Chargepoint, Ionity, Blink Charging, Proterra, and Shell.
“E-Mobility is an irreversible mega-trend and an imperative for addressing pollution and generating job opportunities in Thailand. Through our EV charging network we intend to develop a holistic e-mobility ecosystem to accelerate the adoption of EVs in Thailand. As part of this resolve, we have also started partnering with organizations to set-up a network of e charging stations — both for captive use and for our consumers,” said Nicole Wu, CEO of EVLOMO. “Further strengthening our commitment to Thailand, we aim to provide our customers with a robust charging ecosystem to promote the adoption of electric mobility. With a partner like PTT Oil and Retail Business PLC, a renowned major energy and retail industry player, we are confident that we will together create unique synergies.”
