EVI Technologies (EVIT) has announced that it has signed an agreement with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) for setting up battery swapping and charging stations.
As part of the 10-year MoU signed between the two entities, EVIT would install charging infrastructure at 5,000 locations of BSNL across the country, covering major cities.
Under the contract, EVIT will make the complete upfront investment on services pertaining to the MoU, along with the operation and maintenance of battery swapping infrastructure, the company said in a statement.
The state-owned telecom operator, on the other hand, would be accountable for providing the mandatory space and power connections for installing the battery swapping infrastructure, it further.
“Our to-be-developed infrastructure at BSNL will reduce the range anxiety among electric vehicle (EV) consumers and accelerate the adoption of such vehicles across India,” EVI Technologies CEO Rupesh Kumar said.
BSNL Maharashtra CGM Manoj Kumar Mishra said the initiative will help encourage clean energy and reduce carbon emissions. The first set of charging stations under the initiative is planned to open next month in Maharastra and Haryana.
