Siemens will supply electric vehicle chargers to Electromin to develop a network of chargers across Saudi Arabia and the wider region.

The agreement implies that Electromin will receive advanced EV infrastructure technologies from Siemens, including Sicharge D ultra-fast chargers that use direct current and Versicharge AC smart wall- or pole-mounted chargers that operate on alternating current.

Electromin, the e-mobility division of UK-based Petromin, specialises in lubricants and car services, and it is developing an app that allows users to find public chargers, plan routes and book and pay for sessions.

Electromin's Electric Mobility as a Service solutions are contributing to the development of the Saudi EV ecosystem, and this partnership with Siemens will allow us to provide the charging infrastructure and technology necessary to boost adoption of EVs in the Kingdom,

Kalyana Sivagnanam, group CEO of Petromin and CEO of Electromin said.

The Saudi Arabian government wants three out of every 10 cars in Riyadh to be electric by 2030. The kingdom is also committed to achieving zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2060. To that end, it is setting up Lucid Motors' first electric car plant in the region with an annual capacity of 150,000 zero-emission units.
