Singapore, 22 March 2021 – SP Group (SP) and Chevron Singapore Pte. Ltd., which markets the Caltex TM brand, today announced a partnership to offer fast electric vehicle (EV) charging at selected Caltex service stations, delivering on-the-go convenience to electric vehicle motorists.
To be located at four of Caltex’s service stations across Singapore, the initial batch of chargers will be strategically located across the Caltex network, at Chong Pang (North), Changi (East), Jurong Spring (West) and Dunearn (Central). These Caltex service stations will be equipped with 50kW direct current (DC) fast chargers that can charge up an EV in 30 minutes, versus a few hours required by the more commonly available alternating current (AC) chargers. Three service stations will each be equipped with one 50kW direct current (DC) fast charger. The fourth, at Changi, will have two 50kW DC charging points that are designed to allow a compatible car to charge up to a speed of 100kW, provided only one car is utilising the charging points. (Refer to the annex for the addresses of this first batch of service stations.)
SP and Caltex will study EV charging usage patterns and behaviour at the stations to refine and enhance accessibility and utilisation, and plan for more charging points and locations.
Group Chief Executive Officer of SP, Mr. Stanley Huang, said, “We are pleased to partner Caltex in our first collaboration with a fuels and lubricants retailer. This gives EV drivers greater convenience as it accelerates the accessibility of charging locations that are incorporated in our daily activities. Our aim is to build Singapore’s largest public EV charging network and expand our integrated green mobility solutions to meet the evolving needs and sustainability goals of businesses and individuals.”
“Chevron is excited to partner with SP Group to provide EV chargers at selected Caltex stations in Singapore. It is Chevron’s goal to deliver affordable, reliable, and ever-cleaner energy that enables human progress,” said Mr. Law Tat Win, Chevron Singapore Country Chairman. “We endeavour to continually test, learn and explore how to enhance our product and service offerings for our Singapore customers at our Caltex stations.”
This SP and Caltex partnership will better serve drivers choosing electric vehicles and help achieve a lower-carbon future for Singapore. This includes Caltex’s existing commercial customers who plan to electrify their fleets. Both companies will continue to explore initiatives to meet the EV needs for private ownership and commercial use.
The chargers will be installed by the second quarter of 2021 and will be incorporated on the SP Utilities mobile app for ease of use. The SP Utilities mobile app allows EV drivers to search for the availability of the nearest charging points, receive real-time updates on their charging sessions and make direct, cashless payment.
