Gentari Sdn Bhd will be working jointley with Bangkok-based Evolt Technology Co Ltd to explore clean renewable energy and green solutions through its wholly-owned subsidary, Gentari Green Mobility Sdn Bhd. The partnership was cemented via a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and will see the two expand electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and solutions across Southeast Asia.
Gentari’s chief green mobility officer Shah Yang Razalli noted that the company aims to establish a beachhead in Thailand, and this collaboration with Evolt will see them synergising Evolt’s market leadership in Thailand and regional expertise with Gentari’s goal to expand our green mobility network across key markets in Asia Pacific.
“Together, Gentari and Evolt will explore potential investments into co-developing regional charging infrastructure beginning in Thailand, with a focus on commercial locations such as shopping malls, hotels and offices, as well as high-traffic transit hubs.”
Additionally, Poonpat Loharjun, Evolt’s founder and CEO, said that the strategic partnership with Gentari marks an important milestone for Evolt to accelerate the expansion of EV charging stations.
“We have the expertise to identify the right locations for every end-user lifestyle, both at leisure and at work, that offers convenience to access, a seamless journey for commuters, and sufficient coverage. Gentari has been successful in rolling out more than 250 charging points in India and Malaysia and is gaining popularity and user trust in the region.”
This MoU will see us collaborating in the investment and expansion of charging stations in Thailand, thus increasing our capability and readiness for EV charging business opportunities in Asia Pacific,” he concludes.
Aside from the expansion of EV chargers across the region, the collaboration could potentially bring the means of offering EV roaming services for cross-border travellers from Malaysia utilizing charging stations in Thailand by using existing apps like Setel.
