ENGIE and its subsidiary EVBox Group have announced a four-year partnership with Scania to deliver transport providers in 13 European countries with eMobility solutions. This partnership will be for trucks and buses, and will provide Scania’s clients with overall solutions to meet their eMobility needs.
ENGIE will design, offer, install, and maintain the electric charging solutions and related services for Scania customers across a variety of key regions.
The partnership will also cover smart charging infrastructure, service and maintenance and the provision of green energy, as well as financing.
Alexander Vlaskamp, Head of Sales and Marketing, Scania, says: “A complete charging solution encompasses energy supply, charging hardware and software as well as installation, maintenance and other related services adapted to each customer’s specific needs. This strong partnership with ENGIE and EVBox Group will simplify the transition by our customers to an increasingly electrified fleet on the journey towards more sustainable transport.”
Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox Group, adds: “The electrification of transport is one of the key initiatives for reducing emissions-especially since transport represents almost a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions. This partnership poses new opportunities for EVBox Group, and with over 10 years of experience, we’re confident that our expertise and competitive offering will support Scania in achieving its business and sustainability goals.”
Scania says the partnership constitutes an important building block in its commitment to science based climate targets, which also encompass helping customers decarbonise their operations.
