Finnish state-owned company Fortum on Satureday set up two electric vehicle charging stations at Indian Oil outlets for the general public, reported Times of India.
Finland Ambassador to India, Nina Vasukunlahti, launched the facility by virtually charging an electric vehicle in real time located at Goldstrike Fuel and Services located at Raj Bhavan in Hyderabad. Another charging station was located at an outlet owned by Indian Oil at Begumpet.
“Initially the charging stations are being set up at two retail outlets of Indian Oil on a pilot basis and thereafter it would be expanded to 50 outlets in a period of two years, Fortum India managing director, Sanjay Aggarwal said to TOI.
He said the company has plans to set up 150 to 200 charging points in the country in near future and that the exact number would depend on number of electric vehicles sold in the country.
