KAHRAMAA and WOQOD Sign Agreement to Install 37 EV Charging Units at Petrol Stations
The Qatar Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) and Qatar Fuel (WOQOD) signed an agreement on 30 of November to supply, install and operate 37 charging units for electric vehicles (EV) at WOQOD stations distributed over 22 sites in the country.
The agreement was signed by Eng. Essa bin Hilal Al Kuwari, President of KAHRAMAA, and Eng. Saad Rashid Al Muhannadi, CEO of WOQOD.
The charging units are ultra-fast and highly efficient, so they can charge cars in less than half an hour.
In a statement on this occasion, Eng. Essa Al Kuwari said that the signing of the agreement comes within the many initiatives undertaken by KAHRAMAA to establish and expand the electric charging network for cars, in response to the strategy adopted by the Ministry of Transport in this regard.
He explained that the goal of these stations is to encourage people to use electric cars, which will reduce carbon emissions, as the means of transportation in the world in general represent a large proportion of carbon emissions.
This agreement achieves many goals for both parties, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 and its commitment to preserving the environment in the State of Qatar to reduce harmful carbon emissions, as part of its plan to achieve comprehensive sustainability, including reducing fuel consumption and switching to sustainable transport.
