French energy giant TotalEnergies has acquired Blue Charge, the largest electric vehicle charging network in Singapore, from the Bolloré Group. Upon the approval, TotalEnergies will manage and operate more than 1,500 charge points installed in the city-state.

This urban charging network represents around 85% of the charge points currently under operation in Singapore, accessible to electric vehicles’ owners as well as to the carsharing solution BlueSG.

This network has been developed with the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) and with other partners from both public and private sectors. Singapore has a target to reach 60,000 charge points by the end of the decade.

Alexis Vovk, President Marketing & Services at TotalEnergies, says: “With this acquisition, TotalEnergies is pursuing its transformation and adds a new name on the list of global cities, such as Paris, Amsterdam, London and Brussels, where the Company is already developing its EV charge points installing and operating activities. We are committed to provide the customer experience and services in line with our future users’ expectations.. This urban charging network is also a key initiative for TotalEnergies in Asia-Pacific, a region where the development of electric mobility is a major challenge, deeply linked to the energy transition. We will do our intended best to make it a showcase of our expertise in this field.”

Ting Wee Liang, President of TotalEnergies Asia Pacific & Middle East – Marketing & Services, based in Singapore, adds: “TotalEnergies is excited to enter the Singapore market to contribute towards the development of cleaner and reliable mobility solutions in the country. Today’s announcement also signals our ambition to actively participate in the Singapore Green Plan, to forge key partnerships and to accelerate developments in the region, using Singapore as a strategic launchpad.”
