Fuel retailer Or has partnered with EVLomo to deploy 150kW DC Super-Fast charging stations at around 100 PTT stations in Thailand's Eastern Economic corridor. 

PTT, formerly Petroleum Authority of Thailand, is an oil and gas company that owns Or. 

The corridor is an economic zone that includes the provinces of Chachoengsao, Chonburi and Rayong Provinces in eastern Thailand. 

Both parties will focus on interoperability of the network so that drivers can use both Or and EVLomo electric vehicle (EV) chargers. 

This expansion of EV charging network is in line with the government's goal of selling only zero-emission vehicles in the country from 2035, and plans for Thailand to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. 

Boonma Phonthanakornkul, senior executive vice president, oil retail business at Or, says: “EVs have the ability to solve some of the key issues we are currently facing with respect to pollution and air quality; and as a large-scale electric mobility platform, EVLomo can bring about a catalytic change."

EvLomo CEO Nicole Wu says: “By deploying large-scale super-fast charging network, we can establish a leading position and help accelerate the adoption of EVs."
