A CONSORTIUM led by ComfortDelGro : C52 0% (CDG) has come up among five recipients of tenders awarded by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) for the deployment of at least 12,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points in 2,000 public car parks across Singapore.

The tender was awarded to CDG Engineering and its consortium partners, Engie South East Asia and CDG Engie.

CDG Engineering is a wholly-owned subsidiary of land transport operator CDG, while Engie South East Asia operates as a cluster under Engie Asia Pacific, an energy and services company in Singapore. CDG Engie is a joint venture between CDG Engineering and Engie South East Asia.

The CDG-led consortium will set up EV charging points in participating public car parks in the North and West regions with payable concession fees at a tender price of S$0.16 per kilowatt hour (kWh) and S$0.13 cents per kWh, respectively.

This is the second such tender won by the consortium, following the pilot tender for EV charging infrastructure that was awarded in September 2021. In a press release on Wednesday (Nov 2), CDG said that two-thirds of the 479 charging points from the first tender have been deployed, with the remaining on track to be deployed in the next few months.

CDG Engie’s general manager Freddie Chew said the joint venture has been ramping up recruitment to double its current strength, in anticipation of the tender. “With more than a year’s experience in deploying EV charging points, we have fine-tuned our processes and are confident we will be able to deploy these new charging points in time,” he added.

Another tender was awarded to Charge+, the green mobility unit of Sunseap Group. Charge+ will deploy EV charging points in the Central and West regions with payable concession fees at a tender price of S$0.10 per kWh and S$0.11 per kWh, respectively. This is also the second such tender won by the company.

“With the experience from the first governmental tender for EV charging, we look forward to the speedy implementation of this new charging network in HDB car parks which will contribute to our corporate target of at least 10,000 charging points by 2030,” said chief executive Goh Chee Kiong.

The remaining three tenders were awarded to SP Mobility, a consortium led by Shell Eastern Petroleum, and a consortium led by Strides Automotive Services.

The LTA said in a press release on Wednesday that a total of 11 bids received for the tender were evaluated on a combination of factors, including their concession fee bids as well as the quality of their proposal. It added that bidders were also assessed on their ability to optimise available electrical capacity to power their EV charging points.

The LTA had earlier said that the deployment of charging points will start by the first quarter of 2023, and that tenderers will need to deploy at least three to six charging points in their designated public car parks by the end of 2025.

As at 2.21 pm, CDG shares were trading higher by 0.8 per cent or S$0.01 at S$1.31, following the news.
