Electric vehicle charger manufacturer Servotech Power Systems has bagged a major order of 1800 DC fast EV chargers from Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL).

The project, valued at Rs 120 crore, encompasses two charger variants, 60 kW and 120 kW and will involve Servotech manufacturing, supplying, installing and strategically deploying these 1,800 EV chargers across India, particularly at BPCL petrol pumps in major cities. This is part of the BPCL E-drive project which is aimed at widespread expansion of the EV charging infrastructure. Servotech aims to complete installation of these 1,800 chargers by the end of 2024. This initiative aims to establish e-mobility touchpoints, optimizing transactions, improving availability, simplifying discovery, and facilitating navigation for EV users.

Sarika Bhatia, Director of Servotech Power Systems, said: “We take immense pride in accelerating India's e-mobility revolution in collaboration with BPCL. Our partnership focuses on establishing a dynamic EV charging network that makes EV charging accessible for EV owners nationwide.”

She added, “Servotech has already successfully supplied 4000 EV chargers across India (as of January 2024). This strategic initiative not only represents a significant milestone but also paves the way for a robust and expansive charging network, essential for the future of high-capacity and rapid EV charging, said Sarika Bhatia

Servotech Power Systems and BPCL have previously worked together. In November 2023, the company bagged an order to supply and install 2,649 AC EV chargersv at different locations across the country for BPCL’s E-drive project. Servotech has already completed 36% of supply and installation and the entire project will be completed by March 2024.
