New Delhi, 3rd April 2023: In a significant development underlining the ever-increasing presence of Statiq on the country’s EV charging landscape, India’s largest EV charging network provider has been awarded a tender by HPCL, one of government’s maharatna PSUs. Under this, Statiq will install over 500 chargers for HPCL at the latter’s outlets spread across the states of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.
While over 400 chargers will be of 3.3 kw capacity each, a few more than a hundred chargers will be of 7.7 kw capacity each. All types of EVs including two-wheelers, three-wheelers and four-wheelers will be able to make use of these EV chargers. Importantly, only last year, Statiq had installed nearly 200 chargers – about 130 chargers of 3.3 kw and 75 chargers of 7.7 kw capacity – at HPCL’s outlets in a number of towns including Gorakhpur, Kanpur, Lucknow, Patna, Agra, Meerut, Dehradun and Varanasi.
“With HPCL undertaking a major and country-wide exercise in terms of setting up EV charging stations at their petrol pumps, we are indeed happy and proud to have been won this tender and become a part of their EV infrastructure building up journey. With these chargers present at their petrol pump stations, EV users would now be able to seamlessly access easy and convenient charging options. This would certainly enable them to get similar user experiences as they did with their petrol and diesel vehicles before. We have successfully worked with HPCL in the recent past and would only be happy to continue to do so in the coming future too, said Mr Aman Rehman, Head Of Government Relations, Statiq.
