SINGAPORE, 2 November 2022 – ComfortDelGro ENGIE Pte Ltd (CDG ENGIE) is set to grow its islandwide network of electric vehicle (EV) charging points with its latest tender win.
The year-old consortium comprising ComfortDelGro’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ComfortDelGro Engineering Pte Ltd and French energy giant, ENGIE South East Asia (ENGIE), has been awarded two in 10 packages in a highly contested Land Transport Authority (LTA) tender for the installation of EV charging points covering nearly 2,000 Housing Development Board (HDB) car parks.
This further cements CDG ENGIE as one of Singapore’s largest EV charging operators with operations spanning across the East, West, Central as well as the North regions of Singapore.
The latest tender win, which comprises up to 4,509 alternate current (AC) charging points at 387 HDB car parks comes hot on the heels of its successful bid in the 2021 pilot tender by the Land Transport Authority-Urban Redevelopment Authority (LTA-URA) for the operation of 479 charging points at car parks managed by HDB, JTC Corporation, NParks, People's Association and URA. Two-thirds of these charging points have been deployed, with the remaining on track to be deployed in the next few months. Outside of the LTA-URA pilot tender, CDG ENGIE also operates charging points at car parks on ComfortDelGro premises, school campuses and commercial sites.
Said Mr Yang Ban Seng, MD/Group CEO of ComfortDelGro: “We are excited that the joint venture between ComfortDelGro and ENGIE has won its second major tender. This win has strengthened CDG ENGIE’s position in the EV charging field even though it is just a year 2 old, and given it the opportunity to boost Singapore’s EV charging infrastructure in support of the Singapore Green Plan 2030.”
ENGIE’S CEO Energy Solutions APAC and Country Head Southeast Asia, Mr Thomas Baudlot, said: “ENGIE is thrilled to see another win for CDG ENGIE. Just last month we celebrated the first anniversary of this joint venture between ENGIE and ComfortDelGro and today we are already celebrating a new milestone. This win stands as a testament to the strength of our combined competencies in driving the transition to a carbon-neutral economy in Singapore.”
Mr Freddie Chew, General Manager of CDG ENGIE, added: “This is another step forward for CDG ENGIE. In anticipation of this win, we have been actively recruiting and beefing up our team to more than double the size of our current strength. With more than a year’s experience in deploying EV charging points, we have fine-tuned our processes and are confident we will be able to deploy these new charging points in time.”
Beyond this tender, CDG ENGIE has also been working very closely with the authorities and its partners to encourage the adoption of EVs. In May 2022, CDG ENGIE collaborated with GetGo Carsharing to support the deployment of GetGo EVs at Jurong Spring on its electric charging platform, with plans to expand islandwide. In June, CDG ENGIE also joined Voltality, an eMobility platform which provides EV drivers with the convenience of using any EV charger across Singapore using a single interface.
