TotalEnergies has been selected to install up to 4,400 public charge points in the West Flanders and Flemish Brabant regions of Belgium over the next two years.
The energy company secured the order from the Flemish government under the recommendation of the Department of Mobility and Public Works of the Flemish Region.
The order will see TotalEnergies coordinate the installation and commercial operation of a charging service for electric vehicles (EVs) in the West Flanders (Westhoek, Kortrijk and Bruges) and Flemish Brabant (Brussels Periphery, Leuven) regions.
The new 22kVA charging stations will be operated under the TotalEnergies brand for a period of 12 years and will be supplied with 100% renewable electricity generated by offshore wind power in the North Sea off the coast of Belgium.
The Department of Mobility and Public Works has developed a collaborative internet platform that will make it possible to install charging stations as of September 2022. This is in the hopes of enabling TotalEnergies to more effectively process requests for charge points’ installation users and local municipalities.
“We are very pleased with the trust Flanders has granted us for the coming years and we will draw on our expertise to encourage and support the mobility of its citizens. This success reflects TotalEnergies’ ambition to further accelerate its transformation into a broad energy company”, stated Stefaan De Ganck, TotalEnergies charging solutions Belgium director.
“In Belgium, as in all markets where we are expanding into electric mobility, we are committed to providing a customer experience and electric charging services that meet their expectations.”
This concession is part of Flanders’ many initiatives to promote the electrification of the vehicle fleet, including a target of 35,000 installed charge points by 2025.
