To boost electric vehicles in the country, Shell Pakistan Limited has announced an MoU to be signed with K-Electric to build electric charging stations.
Recently, the Head of Legal and Company Secretary of Shell Pakistan, Lalarukh Hussain Shaikh said:
The inclusion of electric charging stations is not in any way a shift in the primary strategy of SPL, that is providing energy and services to its customers for their vehicles, nor would it be tantamount to a change in its primary business.
It is stated that as of now, Shell and K-Electric are looking forward to jointly develop three electric-vehicle charging stations in Karachi. The locations selected include; the Shell Defence Filling-Station on Khayaban-e-Bahria, Askari Filling Station at Gulshan Town, and Mardan Filling Station at Gadap Town.
Over the next 3 to 5 years, Shell and K-Electric will explore the opportunity of additional sites and strategically expand the EV charging network. While Shell will engage in the deployment of charging-station equipment, site preparation, installation and manage its operations; K-Electric will ensure grid enhancementOfficial Statement
