QEV Philippines Electromobility Solutions and Consulting Group Inc. has entered into a partnership with Pilipinas Shell to put up the first electric vehicle fast charging infrastructure network in the country.
Under the deal, an initial 100 pilot sites for the EV charging posts wl be constructed. The first installations are expected to take place in December this year.
The charging posts will be supplied by ABB (Asea Brown Boveri), the Swiss multinational company specializing in robotics power and automation technology areas.
