Rosneft and RusHydro Agree to Cooperate in Developing E-Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

02 September 2021

As part of the VI Eastern Economic Forum, Rosneft and RusHydro signed a Letter of Intent for cooperation in developing an e-vehicle charging infrastructure.

According to this document, the parties are going to develop the infrastructure intended for electric vehicles at the Rosneft filling stations, including those located in the Far Eastern Federal District. To date, six fast-charging stations of RusHydro have been installed at Rosneft filling stations located in the Khabarovsk and Primorsk Territories and in Sakhalin. The intention is to install up to 20 fast-charging stations on an annual basis.

Charging stations are currently operating as part of the Rosneft retail network in the Moscow, Tver and Leningrad Regions, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk as well as in the Krasnodar Territory.

The development of charging infrastructure at the Company’s filling stations will allow drivers of electric vehicles to travel freely using Rosneft’s extensive retail sites network. “Round-the-clock operating mode and availability of related services will make it possible for drivers to spend time in comfort at the Company’s retail stations while waiting for their EV to charge. They can enjoy freshly brewed coffee and a quick meal in a cafeteria, buy convenience goods in a store or use other amenities offered by a retail site,” says Avril Conroy, Vice President for Retail Business and Domestic Market Development.

Ensuring high-quality standards of petroleum products and non-fuel services, the Rosneft retail sites network is developing additional services for the convenience of its customers. The Company will continue to further develop the charging infrastructure at its filling stations in line with demand forecasts and developments in the electric vehicle market.

RusHydro, Russia’s largest electric power holding company, is developing a network of fast-charging stations for electric vehicles in the Far East. The charging stations are located in the Primorsk Territory, Amur Region, Khabarovsk, Sakhalin Region and Kamchatka Territory.
