Sterling and Wilson, India’s leading engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor, today announced its foray into India’s electric mobility segment. The company has signed a 50-50 joint venture (JV) with Enel X—an Enel Group subsidiary—to launch and create electric charging infrastructure in the Indian sub-continent.
“The JV intends to give a boost to the fast-evolving private e-mobility ecosystem by providing world-class products and software platforms to support the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure build-up across the country. Consumers can access Enel X’s vast range of cutting-edge electric vehicle chargers”—read a Sterling and Wilson statement.
Under this partnership, SWPL will introduce Enel X’s Juice family of high-tech, digital, and smart DC as well as fast AC electrical vehicle chargers that already have worldwide recognition, adjusted to the needs of the Indian consumers.
Customers will have the opportunity to choose how, where, and when to charge their car, potentially selecting the most efficient time for charging, thus making the charging experience fully controllable, easy, and convenient. This platform also facilitates asset operators and owners to track the performance of charging stations and networks and troubleshoot systems in real time.
Sanjay Jadhav, chief executive officer, Sterling Generators, said the joint venture would provide end-to-end services for electric vehicle charging stations across India. “The quick electric charger will be a game-changer for the EV sector in the country and is in line with the national vision to combat fossil fuel pollution and associated climate change through accelerated electrification of private and public transportation as a prime lever,” he added.
Francesco Venturini, Enel X chief executive officer, said, “We are leading the spread of electric mobility in several global markets, including Europe and North America and we are thrilled to work with Sterling and Wilson, marking our entry into the Indian market. Joining forces allows our teams to leverage our extensive market knowledge and technical experience, helping to deliver effective results, as well as making important steps towards a clean and sustainable future.”
The joint venture between Sterling and Wilson and Enel X will be incorporated on April 1, 2021 and will start operating from the second quarter of 2021.
