ENGIE and its subsidiary EVBox Group have entered into a four-year partnership with Scania to deliver transport providers in 13 European countries made-to-measure, comprehensive eMobility solutions. This partnership will be for trucks and buses, and will provide Scania's clients with overall solutions to meet their eMobility needs. It will include made-to-measure solutions to meet the fleet's and depot's actual management requirements, as well as those of electric HGVs. It will also cover smart charging infrastructure, service and maintenance and the provision of green energy, as well as financing.
To support its clients throughout the electrification process, Scania will provide electric vehicles and electric charging solutions:
The partnership between the three companies will begin with operations in 13 European countries. These will be extended to include other regions starting at the end of 2021. ENGIE and EVBox Group will be working together with trusted regional partners, such as Caverion and Alpiq.
Alexander Vlaskamp, Scania’s Head of Sales and Marketing said:
“a complete charging solution encompasses energy supply, charging hardware and software, as well as installation, maintenance and other associated services tailored to meet each client's specific requirements. This strong partnership with ENGIE and EVBox Group will simplify our clients’ transition over to an increasingly electrified fleet on the path towards a more sustainable transport sector”.
Shankar Krishnamoorthy, ENGIE’s Executive Vice President said:
“Scania and ENGIE share the same vision and ambition to drive the shift towards sustainable transport solutions. This European partnership covering electric trucks and buses has come about through mutual trust developed over the course of our long-established collaboration focusing on gas mobility. We are proud to be joining forces on this new electric truck segment, which offers promising potential regarding urban and peri-urban usage. ENGIE is delighted to be designing, producing, installing and maintaining leading charging solutions and associated services for Scania clients, which will benefit both from its own European network of qualified technicians and from partners’ regional networks.”
Kristof Vereenooghe, EVBox Group CEO said:
“The electrification of transit and transport is one of the key initiatives for reducing emissions especially since transport accounts for almost a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions. This partnership presents new opportunities for EVBox Group, and with over ten years of experience, we’re confident that our expertise and competitive solutions will support Scania in achieving its business and sustainability goals”.
